Do you have squirrels in your drop tile ceiling in Germantown TN? We specialize in the removal of squirrels in the drop-tile ceiling of homes and businesses. It is common in many commercial buildings to have drop-tile ceilings. This creates a space that squirrels can easily maneuver through if they have found a way inside of your building.
Squirrel Mating Season And Reproduction Rates
Squirrels will often gain entrance into the building when they are preparing to nest. The mating season is around December to February and also around June. Once they have mated they will be looking for a safe, quiet, and warm place to raise their young. The gestation period for a pregnant squirrel is around 44 days. They can birth a litter of 2 to 4 squirrels on average.
Once the babies are born they stay with their mom for up to 10 weeks before they are weaned. She will go out during the day to eat and gather food. At night she will stay with her babies to protect and care for them. Once her young are weened she will lead them outside and teach them to forage for food.
Fecal And Urine Damage Caused By Squirrels In Your Drop Tile Ceiling In Germantown TN
When there is more than one squirrel, there will be a lot of fecal and urine damage to your insulation. This is a concern, especially with bacteria. If the squirrel’s nest in your drop-tile ceiling is close to your ventilation system, it can filter the fecal particles through the air. This can be harmful and make you sick. If there is enough urine build up it can create mold, which is very toxic if breathed in.
Squirrels can carry a lot of diseases. If you unknowingly touch an area that was urinated on you can transfer the disease to yourself and others. This happens by touching surfaces or food without washing your hands.
Why Squirrels Chew On Electrical Wires
It’s important to have your electrical wires checked if you suspect a squirrel is in your drop-tile ceiling. Squirrels are known to chew through just about anything and that includes electrical wires. A squirrel’s teeth never stop growing. Squirrels constantly chew to regulate the size of their teeth. If a squirrel lets its teeth grow too long it will not be able to eat properly.
How To Remove Squirrels In Your Drop Tile Ceiling
There are ways to keep squirrels away and create natural deterrents. Cutting tree limbs that are hanging close to the building is a big help. Squirrels use tree limbs like we use interstates. They can still get on your roof if you cut them but it will require more work. A squirrel can actually climb right up the side of your home if it wants to. The object is to make your roof inconvenient to get on. Trim any bushes near your building so the wall and vents are more exposed. This will help you to see if any squirrels have been chewing or trying to get inside of these areas. Remove any easy access to food or garbage. Squirrels will get into bird feeders if they can, so taking away that source of food is a big help.
Squirrel Removal And Trapping
Sometimes there are just too many squirrels in the area and the population needs to be controlled. If there is an overabundance of any certain species it starts to create problems for homeowners and businesses. As squirrel populations increase, the need for shelter will become greater. This will make your commercial building or home much more appealing.
One way we handle this before it gets to that point is our outside trapping services. If you’ve seen chewing, and notice signs of squirrels, it’s best to get it taken care of it.
Relocating Squirrels In Your Drop Tile Ceiling
We offer an outside trapping service that lasts for 7 days. During this time we leave live cage traps on your property. Any squirrels caught during this time period are relocated approximately 25 miles away. This helps to reduce the population and reduces the likelihood of future occurrences. This will hopefully help and keep the population under control better and they hopefully will leave your building alone.
