Flying Squirrel Removal

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a flying squirrel! This interesting little critter is a nocturnal rodent native to Tennessee. It has a soft grayish-brown coat with large black eyes and a flat tail. It has a unique ability to "fly," which is more like gliding, due to its loose skin connected at its wrist and ankle. These animals are very intriguing, to say the least, but they are only something you want to experience from afar. It's a different story when they move into your house or office space. Critter Wranglers is here to answer all your flying squirrel removal questions!

How Do I Know If I Have Flying Squirrels in My Home?
