Squirrel Mating Season And Gestation Period

Squirrels mate twice a year from December to February and again May to June. The males will start to act out and chase the female so you should hear a lot of scampering around outside and on your roof.

When the male wins the game of chase and catches the female then he will mate with her. The female then starts to prepare a nest if she does not already have one. The gestation period for squirrels is around 44 days. Typically, squirrels can give birth to anywhere from 2 to 4 babies per litter. The babies will generally stay with the mother for 7 to 9 weeks and then weaned.

Squirrel Nesting Material

Female squirrels will use trash, paper, plastic, sticks, and insulation to build nests. A quick way to know if you have a squirrel in your attic is to look for fecal droppings. If you happen to notice nesting material in the insulation or near your vents, there are most likely babies present.

Nesting materials are generally flammable so the nests pose a fire hazard. If the nests are near wiring they should be moved immediately. Squirrels will chew at practically anything. Chewed wiring can create a spark that could very easily cause a fire. If you do have squirrel babies

Squirrel Babies Can Die In Your Attic

Apex Wildlife Control offers a dead animal removal and deodorization service. One of our experienced wildlife technicians will begin with a visual inspection in the attic. They use a combination of sight and smell to locate the dead animal. They look down in between the walls from the attic space to determine if they are able to remove the animal from the attic. If that’s not a viable option, the technician will have to cut into the walls of the home.

Initially, the technician will use a small drill to drill in between the studs of the sheetrock. A boroscope camera is then passed through the hole in an effort to locate the carcass. A larger opening in the wall is then created in the wall and the carcass removed once the animal has been located. The area behind the wall is then deodorized with a mist that quickly dispels the odor.

Our technicians are thorough and will use every option in their effort to locate a dead animal. However, there are no guarantees with this service. Occasionally an animal will die in an area that is not accessible without doing major damage to your home. In such cases, a decision must be made on the level of damage the homeowner is willing to accept to remove the animal.
