With here, squirrels will be looking to stay cozy. Since attics are an ideal hide-out, here are some tips from A1 Exterminators for keeping them out.
There are many important steps to prevent a tree squirrel infestation inside the home.
- It is recommended to seal all possible points of entry around the house, including small openings and cracks around doors and windows.
- Screen vents and openings to chimneys.
- Keep food in airtight containers and dispose of garbage regularly.
- Keep tree limbs cut back 6 to 8 feet from the roof line. Inspect wires, insulation and walls for any signs of gnaw marks, which may indicate an infestation.
If you find feces, hear sounds of scurrying in the walls or observe other signs of an infestation, contact us for an A1 Exterminators professional to inspect and treat the squirrel problem. Do not try to remove any type of rodent without professional help.
