How Do I know If I Have A Squirrel Problem?
You may have a squirrel problem if you hear scratching noises in your ceiling or wall, especially in the mornings or evenings. If you hear loud thumping noises you may also have a squirrel problem.
You may have squirrels in your attic if you see shingles that are chewed and ripped up or small holes around the eaves of your house, if so, you may have a squirrel problem.
Note: Squirrels are quiet at night, so you may not hear noises in your crawl space, attic, or walls. So if your sounds are primarily at night you may have a opossum or raccoon problem.
Why Squirrels Are A Problem?
Squirrels frequently chew electrical wires and tear up insulation. This can cost you money in damage not to mention it could cause a fire in your home. It is IMPORTANT to get rid of a squirrel in your attic as soon as possible.
Squirrels can cause major house damage especially the way they enter your house. Squirrels will generally enter your attic by chewing on the outside of your home, but you may also find squirrels in your yard, squirrels in your garden, and if you’re not careful you may even find a squirrel in your home.
Holes that squirrels leave can cause water damage and cause energy bills to increase. You may notice holes underneath the eaves of a house (the underside of your roof) which allows them to access the attic and crawlspace between your walls.

How Do I Get Rid Of A Squirrel?
Waiting for the squirrel to leave isn’t the solution to the problem. They’ll stay in the attic until someone makes them leave.
The animal removal experts at Wildlife Express suggests two main tips. You must remove access and remove food sources. IF you can do this, you may get rid of the squirrel for a time, but if you want a permanent solutions, give us a call. We have a guaranteed process of humane animal removal.
To start with the best animal removal, we barricade the existing holes and leave a one-way door. The squirrel will leave to get food and water and won’t be able to enter the attic again.
After that process, we prevent them from coming back in with our proven system of repair and what we like to call our ‘squirrel armor.’
