Squirrels are persistent and clever animals. They will empty your bird feeder in a short amount of time and dig in potted plants and flowerbeds and remove bulbs to chew them. They are constantly chewing because their teeth never stop growing. Like other rodents with ever growing teeth, they have to chew to file their teeth down. This can mean a lot of damage if they gain access to your attic. Wood siding, soffits, drywall and electrical wiring are at risk of damage. Your insulation can also be destroyed when they use it to make nests.

Squirrels also carry fleas and other parasites that you do not want in your homes. They can also bring feces and urine that cause an unpleasant odor in your home. They are rodents, and like rats, they will chew on wires and water lines. Remember, the damage these rodents cause can lead to hazardous and expensive damages.

Squirrel Raise Young In Homes

Squirrels in this area generally breed twice a year, once in the summer between May and June and again in the winter between December and February. In Alabama, due to mellow winters, the grey squirrels tend to extend the breeding season. The grey squirrel does not hibernate like some northern species. If you have them in your attic, you will typically only have one family inside. A dominant male and female will keep others away while they are nesting.

Trapping is one method of removal; another is the use of deterrents to persuade the animals to move out on their own. If they leave they will take any offspring with them. They are among the most devoted parents and will defend their babies to the death. If we trap the adults, we will need to remove the babies by hand to either reunite the family or take the babies to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator for care and eventual release. Please do not attempt this on your own.
