Squirrels can damage siding. If a squirrel has found a way in through some damaged siding, it can chew these damaged areas and make the problem worse. This may allow rainwater or moisture in the air to seep into the wood of your home, creating more damage, as well as allow other animals access to your home.
Squirrels can damage shingles. Their razor-like claws and teeth can tear down your roof. They will cut a new hole in the roof shingles or rip through and enlarge a current one to gain access into your attic. Squirrels will invade a roof for a variety of reasons. Mating, a surge in predators, a reduction in habitat upon which to establish dens, or even cold weather are examples. Some typical ways for squirrels to gain access to your roof are through roof vents, roof-soffit crisscrossing, gable vents, and uncapped chimneys.
So if you have squirrels living inside your attic, walls or other areas of your home, it is imperative to get professional help as soon as possible. The professional wildlife technicians at Apex Wildlife Control have the knowledge, experience, and the necessary equipment to remove squirrels safely and efficiently.
