Between their ability to quickly reproduce and their aptitude for nesting in hard-to-reach areas of homes and offices, eliminating a squirrel infestation on your own can be nearly impossible. Squirrels are creative and are able to squeeze through tiny holes and cracks, making it easy for them to enter and wreak havoc on your home or office. The most effective way to eliminate a squirrel infestation is to utilize the services of a professional squirrel exterminator, like those here at Critter Control® of Tampa.
Why Are Squirrels Dangerous?
Even though they do their best to avoid human contact out in the wild, squirrels can sometimes become aggressive if they feel cornered or threatened inside a home, especially if you come near their nest or babies. Squirrels invade homes and businesses in search of shelter and a place to nest, and as a result, items and structures inside are often damaged or destroyed.
Attic insulation, along with electrical wiring, ventilation ducts, and even water pipes are among the most commonly damaged fixtures we find, all of which can be costly to replace.
The longer that squirrels are allowed to live in a building, the greater the damage will be. The key to preventing extensive damage is to call for help at the first sign of their presence.
The Signs of Squirrel Activity
Common signs of squirrel activity include:
- A strong, ammonia-like smell coming from air conditioning vents or the attic
- Bite marks on food containers in the kitchen
- Scratching or thumping noises coming from the walls or attic
