Squirrels are excellent climbers; therefore, your home is no obstacle for them with the change of modern day society which is growing at a rapid pace.

Squirrels gain access into your attic by gnawing into your roof material, vinyl siding, wooden beams, or soffit of your home. Once they reach their destination, they'll get to work gnawing on wires, ripping through installation to build their nest, and scrounge around looking for food. Not to mention their urine and feces they leave as well.

their nest and leaving their urine and fecal behind. A guest you invite over would be able to smell the scent from the contaminated installation which is very strong and unpleasant, also other squirrels will be able to smell the scent and invite themselves over as well.
