Squirrels’ teeth are also very sharp and can cut into or through most materials or at least wear them down with time. The reason they tend to chew everything up is that their teeth never stop growing. If the squirrel’s teeth grow too long they will be unable to eat or chew properly and this can eventually kill them if they are unable to get nutrition into their bodies.
Their teeth can also get in the way of climbing or their normal routine if they are too long. So to avoid these scenarios the squires will chew on anything they can get their teeth on to file them down, just like we would use a nail file.
Squirrel Breeding Season And Litter Size
What Happens If They Get Through The Siding Into Your Attic?
If you have squirrels chewing holes in your siding, they will eventually get into your attic. Between each room, the walls have a hollow space and the squirrels travel through it. They also have access to the attic and will nest in the insulation. You can typically hear them running around, making either chewing or gnawing sounds. If there are baby squirrels present, you may hear them crying.
Squirrel Damage And What We Look For
If a squirrel has access to the inside of your home they can do a lot of damage that can be very expensive as well as dangerous to your home and your family. Squirrels are known to chew the wiring inside of your home. If this happens we will notify you immediately upon finding the evidence of chewed wiring, so you may get an electrician to secure it so it is not a fire hazard. It could also interrupt your home’s power depending on what the electrical wiring goes to.
Squirrel Damage And Additional Health Concerns
Squirrel Habitat And Modification
There are a few things you can do to help prevent this from happening. Make sure there are not any tree branches hanging low and close to your home giving the squirrels easy access to your siding or roof. Make sure all trash is secured in your trash can and that there is no food or even bird feed on the ground. Squirrels will eat birdseed and that will attract them to your home.
When Outside Squirrel Trapping Becomes Necessary
Sometimes there is an overabundance of wildlife in the area and around your home, making it is necessary to do outside trapping. We typically do not like to relocate animals because it can be difficult to survive in a new area, but if there are too many in one area they will start to tear up people’s homes. Apex Wildlife Control offers outside trapping for 7 days, which we will set multiple traps and bait them to catch as many squirrels as we can, and relocate them to another area 20 miles away, so they won’t return to your property.
