Problems With Wildlife
Watching animals in the wild can be relaxing. Seeing wildlife in their natural habitat, and watching their antics can be amusing. When those cute animals decide to take up residence in your home, it is not as much fun as seeing them in the wild. They can cause damage and you need to find a humane way to remove them and relocate them back into their natural habitat.
One animal that likes to live in attics, basements, sheds, and other places in or around your home, is the squirrel. While these little guys are fun to watch as they scamper around the yard looking for food, they are not as enjoyable inside your home. The sound of their little feet can keep you awake at night. They chew on woodwork, pipes, and wires while residing in your home. They build nests as they prepare to have a family in the location they have picked inside your home.
There are several types of squirrels that include gray, black, red, and brown. They all would live in an attic if given the chance. Their natural habitat includes cities, suburban areas, and forests. Typically, all squirrels are active during the day, but they are most active in the morning and evening. The furry little animals mainly eat seeds and nuts. The frisky little animals scamper around, have home territories, and communicate by chattering. If they are living in your attic, you can see them coming and going during the day as the look for food. You may hear them scampering around during the day and if they have a nest, you may hear the chatter from adults and babies.
Female squirrels usually give birth twice a year. They have litters in the winter and late summer. Each litter can have three to four babies, who grow fast. The young squirrels are typically weaned within 10 weeks.
If these furry little guys find their way into your attic or basement, the good news is that there are several humane methods for squirrel removal that will leave your attic once again uninhabited. You can use one-way exclusion doors as well as tunnels to remove the squirrels from your home. Live traps, including traps and cages, is another method of removing the animals from your residence. Check the cages and traps often and remove the animals from your residence. You should relocate them at least five miles from your home, so they do not find their way back.
