Rocky from Rocky and Bullwinkle and Scrat of Ice Age fame may bring a smile to your face in the theaters and on DVD. But real squirrels, living in your attic, garage or shed, have quite the opposite effect. Tiny little faces, and fluffy tails, notwithstanding, these pests are the bringers of destruction when they invade your home.
Squirrels are rodents, and as such, chewing is their most persistent pastime. That is when they’re not procreating or urinating and defecating. All this activity spells widespread damage to a home with a squirrel problem.
From your electrical wiring to your insulation, these critters will destroy your property through chewing and the waste they leave behind. They also damage drywall, siding, beams and other housing materials, entering and exiting your residence.
Your gardens, soil, and root systems can suffer damage as well. Squirrels will eat your produce and dig holes throughout the area. These animals are a menace with a very high price tag and the potential for devastating hazards, such as fire and flooding, caused by their destructive nature.
