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 James Island, 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.
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:
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.
