What Happens If They Get Through The Siding Into Your Attic?

Are squirrels chewing holes in your siding in Arlington TN? If so, they will eventually get into your attic. Between each room, the walls have a hollow space. This provides a ‘highway’ for the squirrels to travel through. It also provides access to your attic and the squirrels will nest in the insulation there. You can typically hear them running around, making chewing or gnawing sounds. If babies are present, you may hear them crying.

Squirrel Damage And What We Look For

Are squirrels chewing holes in your siding in Arlington TN??  If a squirrel gets access to the inside of your home, they can do a lot of damage. This can be very expensive, as well as dangerous to your home and your family. Squirrels are known to chew on wiring inside your home. If this happens, we will notify you immediately upon finding evidence of chewed wiring. You may have to get an electrician to secure it so it is not a fire hazard. Chewed wiring can also interrupt your home’s power, depending on the connection of the wires.

Squirrel Damage And Additional Health Concerns

Some water line pipes are made out of plastic and squirrels can easily chew through them over time. A small water leak may not be noticeable at first. It can be very bad to have a slow leak over a long period of time. If there is constant moisture, the chance of mold growth is very high. If you don’t know mold is there, it can spread and vent through your home. Your family may become sick without even knowing the cause. A chewed pipe can burst. If that happens, you are dealing with ruined walls and floors. In either case, you will need to call a plumber. You will need to make repairs and hope there is no rotted wood because of the leak.

The important thing is a small hole in your siding can lead to much bigger and more expensive problems. It is always better to stay ahead of the problem before it gets out of control.


Squirrel Habitat And Modification

There are a few things you can do to help prevent this from happening. Make sure tree branches are not hanging low over your roof or close to your home. This gives squirrels easy access to your roof or siding. Make sure all trash is secured in your trash can. Also, be sure there is no pet food or even birdseed on the ground. Squirrels will eat birdseed and this will attract them to your home.

Sometimes there is just an overabundance of squirrels in the area and around your home, making it is necessary to do outside trapping. We typically do not like to relocate squirrels because it can be difficult for them to survive in a new area. However, if there are too many in one area, they will start to tear into homes. Apex Wildlife Control offers outside trapping for seven days. We set up multiple traps and bait them to catch as many squirrels as we can. Then we relocate them to another area 20 miles away, so they won’t return to your property.

Interior And Exterior Squirrel Inspection

If you are experiencing one or more of these situations, please give us a call. We can have a technician come out to your property to assess your home and situation. The technician will do an interior and exterior inspection of your home. He will look inside your attic for fecal droppings to verify if the species is a squirrel. He will let you know if there is any damage to your wiring, HVAC or duct work. He will also check the insulation for urine damage as well. You will receive pictures of all of his findings.

Then he will do the exterior inspection where he is checking from your foundation to your roof for all potential and actual entry points. He will show you pictures of how the squirrels are gaining access to your house.
