From piles of tenant trash to units filled with food and water, an apartment community is a pretty attractive area for wild squirrels. Fortunately, dealing with squirrels in your apartment complex doesn’t have to be complex. Here are some tips to help you outsmart the squirrels nesting in your apartment building.

Dangers of Squirrels in Your Apartment Complex

You’re probably familiar with seeing these quick, cute critters around your city and even around your property. So is there really a cause for concern when they settle inside your apartment units? Considering the health risks and serious property damage associated with an infestation, squirrels can disrupt your community as soon as they set foot inside.

Squirrels will not only chew, scratch, and tear their way through walls, roofing materials, and insulation, but they’ll also contaminate your units with harmful bacteria. Therefore, the most effective way to outsmart squirrels is to deter them from your property with a call to your local wildlife management provider. Otherwise, you risk spreading dangerous germs, unintentionally harming the animal, or sustaining injuries of your own.

Tips for Taking Care of Your Apartment Infestation

To make your complex less appealing to wild squirrels, make the following changes around your community.

  • Replace any torn, scratched, or tattered screens guarding apartment doors and windows.
  • Trim any tree branches that extend to apartment balconies or the roof of your building.
  • Isolate feeders so squirrels will gather at a distance from your units.
  • Ask your tenants to maintain clean units, regularly remove trash, and properly store food.
  • Fill holes, gaps, and other openings that squirrels can widen by chewing or scratching.

While there are a lot of ways to make your property appear uninteresting to local wildlife, the only way to successfully remove squirrels and block reentry is to contact professional animal technicians.
