Squirrel Removal Services in the Houston and DFW areas
Squirrels may look cute and charming, but chances are, you don’t want one (or more) living in your house. Unfortunately, this is the situation that many homeowners find themselves in. If you hear a scratching or rattling noise coming from within your walls, chimney, or attic, chances are, it’s not a poltergeist—it’s a four-legged “squatter!”
Bright Eyed and Bushy Tailed
Though squirrels and humans usually manage to coexist in harmony, trouble arises when the squirrels decide to move indoors. Crawlspaces, basements, sheds, barns, and attics are appealing to squirrels because they offer shelter from the elements, protection from predators, and ample space to store food. And squirrels don’t need much in the way of an entry point; a small hole in your home’s roof or exterior walls—easily accessible by climbing or leaping—is usually good enough.
While the living situation may prove extremely advantageous to the animals, homeowners with squirrel infestations usually wind up with a major headache. Squirrels are notoriously destructive; it’s not uncommon for them to chew through or tear up drywall, insulation, air ducts, and electrical wiring as they get settled in. They can carry fleas and ticks in their fur, and their urine and droppings can transmit Salmonella and Leptospirosis to humans. Squirrels also hoard food, which can attract other animals—including more squirrels—into the house.
If you suspect that squirrels have moved into your home, or just hear an unnerving scratching or skittering sound inside your walls during the early morning hours, don’t ignore the matter. Call a specialist immediately.
