Typical Damage/Nuisance Caused:
Squirrels make nests in attics, wall and floor voids, barns, and many other man-made structures. They are known for chewing on electrical wires and cause damage to wiring in homes and businesses. Studies have shown that squirrels are responsible for 6% of all house fires.
There are several types of squirrels in Michigan: the Fox, Gray, Red, and Flying squirrels are the most common. They have made an easy adaptation to the urban environment, finding shelter in many man-made structures and food from bird feeders!
Squirrel removal solutions:
Remove/trap the current squirrels living in the structure and seal up all possible squirrel entry points. Modify any exterior habitat such as over hanging branches, excess bird seed and over-growth near foundation.
