They can chew through roofs to get into your loft; afterwards, they will look to create a drey, and they will chew through most materials to do this, sometimes including electrical cables and telephone wires, leaving you with a fire hazard.
In addition, they also spread diseases like, Salmonella, leptospirosis, squirrels pox Squirrel parasites are common, including lice and ticks.

Signs of an infestation
Squirrels will poop and urinate everywhere they poop looks like small black/brown disks, and they will leave a strong, musty smell. In addition, urine has a very distinct smell like ammonia. This, mixed with the droppings, can help you identify if you have an infestation.
These creatures reproduce twice a year and can have up to 5 kittens at a time. Although their breeding cycles are not rapid due to their hardiness, survival rates are high. A newborn will eat solid foods from around 8 to 10 weeks, and they start to breed at around 10 to 12 months. Shortly before this, they will begin to make a drey of their own.
