We Get Rid Of Squirrels From Home Attics

Attics are warm and dry and a perfect place for squirrels to get out of the wild to give birth to their young. It’s not the noise in your attic that should worry you, but the damage squirrels can make by chewing!

Most commonly in Folly Beach, we find an adult female squirrel with babies in attics. Often, if you hear a scratching noise, this indicates a female squirrel is preparing to give birth. If you act quickly, you can circumvent this and hopefully minimize damage created in the attic by squirrels.

Besides squirrel infestations in your attic, you don’t want damage or odor coming from your attic! The noises from your attic are unnerving and a squirrel can cause potential fire hazards by chewing on your electrical wires. The biohazards of the urine and feces can also cause respiratory infections. Squirrel droppings can also carry parasites that are unhealthy for both your family and pets.

    Effects Of Squirrels In Your Attic

    If you leave remnants of squirrels in your attic, such as droppings, urine, nesting material, food, hair, etc., these things can attract insects like roaches. Most importantly, the scent left behind often attract new squirrels to chew or break their way into your home once again. Mold can also grow on the areas in your attic with feces and urine and potentially cause respiratory infections and diseases that are easily spreadable.

    Common Squirrel Damage To Attics

    Since squirrels are rodents that have front teeth that continue to grow, they constantly chew to keep their teeth sharp and manageable. Some of the most common squirrel problems in attics we’ve seen are:

    • Chewing into attics and setting up nests
    • Fires or fire risks from chewed electrical wiring and electrical fixtures in attic which case sparks (fire hazards) or destruction of other electronics
    • Destroyed insulation (by pushing it down), which will reduce your R-factor
    • Strong odor of fecal matter and urine collected in attic insulation
    • Dead squirrels in attic, with bad odor problems;
    • Drywall damage caused by squirrels digging holes in ceiling
    • Chewed on support beams, HVAC duct lines, pipes and roof braces

     

    Diseases & Sicknesses From Squirrels

    Squirrels leave urine and feces in attics, and carry parasites, making them carriers for the diseases that fleas, ticks, and more can transmit and spread. They leave lots of droppings, which can expose you to health risks such as leptospirosis or salmonella.
