Signs You May Have a Squirrel Infestation

Scurrying or Rustling Noises

One common sign homeowners experience when they need squirrel removal is hearing rustling or scurrying in the attic or walls. Squirrels are extremely active during daylight hours, but most clients report the highest activity early in the morning or just before dark.

Droppings and Squirrel Waste

Another common sign of a squirrel infestation is seeing squirrel droppings or urine stains on the ceiling. Even if you don’t actually see the droppings themselves, you may notice a foul odor coming from your attic. Squirrels can stay out of sight easily enough, but they can’t mask the odor of their waste.

Damage to Your Home

A third sign that your home is in need of squirrel removal services is if you are noticing damage to your home. Squirrels will chew on wires, damage attic insulation, and create or enlarge holes in the siding of your home. If you suspect you have a squirrel infestation, check the exterior of your home for holes and damage.

Squirrel Infestations in Tennessee

Squirrel infestations are a common problem for residents of Tennessee. With the late winter being the breeding season for most squirrels, we still commonly find young litters in attics throughout the year. It’s not uncommon to find males or females nesting in your attic at any time of year but our call volume for squirrels does spike as temperatures begin to fall. Your attic provides them with warmth and safety to start their families and hide their food. Their cute faces and bushy tails are nice to enjoy from a distance but what should you do if you suspect these adorable critters have made your home into their home? Call Critter Wranglers!
