Home Damage Cause By Squirrels

A person's home is their sanctuary. It is a place where families come together to eat, talk and enjoy themselves. A place where holidays are festive and a place for out of town family members can lay their head while visiting. However, there is an unwanted nuisance pests that will take up residence in your sanctuary as well.

Squirrels can gain access into your home by jumping from a tree limb onto your roof or find a hole as small as a golf ball. Squirrels love to chew. If these nuisance pests locate a hole that is not as big as a golf ball, they can use their razor sharp teeth to rip apart your roof , vinyl siding, soffit or gutters to gain access.

The amount of damage squirrels can make is mind boggling. Once inside your attic, squirrels will make a huge mess that can cost you thousands of dollars in damage. These pests will chew on insulation, wires, rafters and/or any boxes you have stored. They use these things to build their nest where they will sleep and raise their young.

Unfortunately, the wires the squirrels chew on will be exposed which can cause a fire hazard. The rafters can weaken if squirrels chew on it for a lengthy amount of time which can collapse the roof. These nuisance pests will urinate and leave their feces all within the attic area which will cause your home to have a foul odor. Ticks, mites, fleas and internal parasites are common in squirrels and can effect humans.
