Squirrels easily adapt to whatever situation they find themselves in. Their survival depends on how quickly they learn the ropes around their home. When no food is available, the squirrel will travel miles to find it and then set up his home nearby. Squirrels usually build nests high up in the trees but if no tree is available the squirrel will build it in the next best thing- like your home! The squirrel is one of Virginia's most common wildlife pests and "noises" in your attic usually means they found you.
Humans usually supply both shelter and food without even relaizing it. Acting as an 'invitation' to come inside the house, once inside these squirrels can cause a lot of damage by chewing on anything just to sharpen their teeth. Imagine what would happen if they decided to chew on your electrical wires.
Just removing the squirrels is NOT a complete solution. ACS Wildlife Removal offers a permanent solution to squirrel invasion and many other nuisance animals so give us a call today.
