It is one thing to be annoyed by squirrels robbing your bird feeders. It is quite another to have them make a home inside your house. Squirrels present plenty of risks, including bringing pests into your home and chewing on building materials, including drywall, electrical wiring, cabling, and wood. If you have squirrels inside your home, the best thing to do is call for professional squirrel removal services. If you want to avoid needing squirrel removal, there are a few steps that you can take.

How to Avoid Needing Squirrel Removal

  • Keep bird feeders away from your home- Don’t store bird feed where it will attract squirrels and place your bird feeders away from the house to avoid them taking up residence where food is handy.
  • Install a one-way door- If you have a family of squirrels in your attic, install a one-way door at the access point they’ve been using. This will allow them to go outside, but not return.
  • Call a Professional – Squirrels are relentless. If there is a hole on your house, they will find it, make it bigger and go right on in. If you seal anything, they will break in by rippling up what you sealed or making a new hole. They imprint. They need to be removed.
