Disadvantages Of Squirrels Getting Staying In Your Attic Home
Squirrels seek food and shelter during the peak of spring and fall seasons. Just like any nuisance animal, they tend to store food for the upcoming winter or even give birth to their young. They bring problems with their constant chewing through wires, wood, and even spray foam insulation. Their chewing not only disrupts your sleep, but also damages the structure of your home or building. Their fecal matter also soils insulation and harms your health.
Ohio Squirrel Facts
Squirrels are listed in the rodent family. The most problem squirrel calls we receive are for the Eastern Gray Squirrel. The Eastern is most active during the daytime hours (diurnal). Gray squirrels are mostly grey in color and around 17 inches long including the tail. The Gray weighs in about 1 pound, but when running in your attic they sound much larger.
Squirrels are active year-round always on the search for food. They generally live near walnut, oak, or other nut producing trees and love people who feed the birds. We find stored walnuts and acorns and bird seed such as sunflower shells on about 50% of all rodent and squirrel attic inspections. Squirrels primarily live in trees but have no problem adapting to live in your soffits, attics, walls, eaves, garages, and barns.
Most Ohio squirrels including the Gray squirrels in Ohio have two litters per year. One occurs in the spring and one in the fall. The pregnancy lasts about six weeks with and baby squirrels are pink and hairless at birth. The last several years in the Kettering Squirrel Removal Service Ohio region squirrel litters average three young and they stay in the squirrel nest for 2-3 months. Photo below shows juvenile squirrels exiting an attic of a Miami Valley home into one of our Kettering Squirrel Removal Service’s squirrel traps.
Ohio’s most abundant squirrel is the flying squirrel
The most abundant squirrel in Ohio is the flying squirrel. Flying squirrel are active at night (nocturnal). Flying squirrels resemble the activity of a bat. They are approximately 3 times larger than a mouse, and ¼ the size of a gray squirrel.
When we inform a home owner they have flying squirrels they often say “I have flying squirrels in my attic, you’re kidding right?” Unfortunately, no we’re not and yes, we do find flying squirrels in attic quite often in the Kettering Squirrel Removal Service area. Particularly, we find the most flying squirrel removal calls in Kettering Squirrel Removal Service of the Greater Kettering area. Flying squirrel removal can be a very difficult and frustrating task. Why? Due to their ability to glide onto your roof and squeeze through the tiniest of gaps. Kettering Squirrel Removal Service offers guaranteed flying squirrel control and animal damage repairs to get the critters out of your attic for good.
More Information on Flying Squirrels
Flying squirrels are the smallest of the tree squirrels. They are the only nocturnal tree squirrel although fox squirrels have been noted to exhibit nighttime activity. They are very long lived in captivity – up to 12 years. These squirrels will store food in their nest in great quantities. Flying squirrels don’t fly but do glide great distances. Our squirrel pest control technicians have witnessed these squirrels jump and glide over 50 feet feet from their nests located inside soffits and gutters. They leap from high vantage points like a homes roof tops. Once airborne they spread their appendages. The skin of the body catches air and the flyer glides to safety on nearby trees.

Kettering Squirrel Nuisance concerns
It’s a fact squirrels have adapted to humans. They use buildings as nesting areas. Squirrels love to break into a house and stay in an attic or soffit. They often find a small opening and chew a wider hole to gain access to the building. These pesky critters bring nesting material into the home. Also, they make quite a bit of noise scurrying around and caching nuts. Squirrels often fall down a chimney flue making a lot of noise entering the fireplace. Sometimes they fall down a wall from the attic and get stuck there. Also, they often chew their way into commercial buildings or apartments. You’ll also find that squirrels often enter the attic through the gable vent.
Squirrels can cause a fire hazard in homes by bringing in nesting material. They place their nesting next to power lines they chew. They also leave behind a lot of droppings and urine in the attic. The droppings not only smell bad, but they pose a biohazard. Also, the smell attracts new squirrels. We recommend attic decontamination services if you’ve had squirrels living in your attic.
Getting rid of squirrels can take on a variety of approaches
Getting rid of squirrels can take many approaches. For example, squirrel trapping, squirrel damage repairs from chewing and feces in your attic, squirrel prevention and control, squirrel exclusion, and tree removal. We do not suggest repellents since they don’t work.
How to remove squirrels from my house or attic? We use a trap exclusion door over the entry hole so squirrels can leave but not return. With this method you do risk squirrels returning to chew in a new hole next to this one-way door trap and causing more damage. Also, we suggest using live cage traps to remove squirrels. Trapping squirrels in cage traps is highly effective. We safely and humanely remove squirrels. Afterwards, we release them at our 25 acre wooded office location outside Troy Ohio. This prevents your squirrels from returning.
We get this question a lot: How do you keep from trapping every squirrel in the neighborhood? Our intent is to not catch any animal that’s not part of the problem. And, we set special traps to target problematic squirrels. We use precise trap placements and unique methods. Also, we go the extra mile to set squirrel traps in effective locations on your home. Only the nuisance squirrels on your roof or gutter are being captured and removed.

Squirrels LOVE to LIVE in Attics, will do damage to your home and spread diseases
The only problem is they aren’t paying you rent & need to go!!!!
so why do squirrels love to live in attics?
Well, they are protected from predators and sheltered from elements. There’s plenty of places to store food and they can nest in your insulation. And squirrels will take advantage of your homes air conditioning system to stay warm in the winter and cool in summer.
They are perpetual chewers of wood, rubber, plastic, metals, etc. so an attic is a perfect place for them. Squirrels have an obsession with constantly chewing to sharpen their teeth. This can create dangerous conditions when they chew on electrical wires such as Romex Wire.
Is your duct work vanishing?
Duct work is often damaged and used as nesting material which can cost you in heating and cooling bills. Damaged ducts allow bacterial and fungal spores from the fecal matter and attic to enter your home. Gutters have been destroyed by their ferocious gnawing on aluminum. This damage costs homeowners hundreds if not thousands of dollars in repairs. We have even seen the tops of aluminum fence railing that has been destroyed by squirrel chewing. Of course, the damage ruins the aesthetics of the fencing.
Squirrel Diseases found in Ohio
Squirrels carry many insects and parasites like fleas and ticks. Also, they become a host and vector for many diseases. These critters aren’t litter box trained and will urinate and defecate (go to the bathroom #2). These soiled areas include your insulation, rafters, and attic access doors. These soiled areas cause serious health risks for occupants. Some of these diseases and fungi are Histoplasmosis, Leptospirosis or Salmonella.
