Squirrel Droppings In Your Insulation In Arlington TN
Have you been in your attic recently? Have you noticed squirrel droppings in insulation or on the floors of your attic in Arlington TN? You are not alone if you have squirrel droppings in your insulation. We receive calls daily from concerned homeowners about this very issue. The obvious issue is not just the droppings, but the fact that squirrels are in your home.
Fecal droppings are the quickest way to tell if there are squirrels in your home. When wildlife companies go into attics, that is the first thing we look for. We can tell what species the animal is just from the shape and size of the droppings. We can also tell if the droppings are fresh or old.
Identifying Squirrel Droppings In Your Insulation In Arlington TN
Squirrel fecal matter can vary in size depending on the species. Flying squirrels tend to deposit very small oval-shaped droppings all in one area. It is almost like that is the designated toilet area. Other species of squirrels will lay their droppings sporadically here and there.
Fecal droppings and urine can ruin your attic insulation. If this happens, the insulation may need to be replaced. Fecal droppings contain bacteria and diseases. It is possible to breathe in airborne spores if you disturb an area while in the attic.
To become infected, you must come in direct contact or inhale the fecal particles. This usually happens while cleaning up the feces. Bacteria is transferred by touching your face or clothing after having been in contact with fecal matter.
If there is enough urine or droppings in the insulation, mold can start to grow. This is especially problematic if it is near an air duct. This can lead to bacteria particles being circulated throughout the entire house.
