Squirrels can be a joy to see in their natural habitat, scampering up trees and gathering acorns. Sometimes, though, squirrel populations can suddenly be too prevalent around your home and the small critters can even get into your home. Squirrels are generally considered a pest animal and can be trapped, removed and relocated — but we don't encourage homeowners to do this work. Call Wildlife X Team® Austin at 737.225.8551 today to address any and all squirrel problems.
Common Squirrel Complaints
One of the most common complaints we receive when it comes to squirrels is the damage they can cause inside your home — attics and inside walls are common nesting areas for squirrels. Squirrels also:
- Rip insulation to use for making nests, lowering your home's heating efficiency
- Soil rooms with urine and feces, both of which can be health hazards
- Steal birdseed from feeders and scares songbirds off
