They make holes in these and leave openings so water can easily come in and start to rot and create dampness in a multitude of ways. Once they gain entry, they will immediately begin building a nest. They will strip wood from wooden structures, and this will weaken the support structures, eventually causing these things to collapse, causing you tremendous amounts of money in repairs.

Description of a squirrel
The Grey Squirrel is about 8 inches(20cm) in length, excluding the tail. The ears are small and rounded. The belly is almost entirely white with some darker stripes on its back. It has slender but powerful claws for grasping bark and tree branches, often high up from the ground or close to power lines. They weigh in at 0.5-2.5kg. They are primarily nocturnal. Although they are nocturnal, they can be active when undisturbed by people or other animals in the area. The young squirrels tend to stay within a few hundred metres of their birthplace for a considerable period of time and venture out less frequently than adults. They do not hibernate but may seek shelter from severe winter weather under a stone wall or building.
Where can I find them in my home?
Squirrels build their nests, or dreys, in trees, typically near the trunk. They may also construct them in sheltered locations on the ground, such as under a building, a porch, or a pile of lumber. Squirrels use a variety of materials to build their nests, including leaves, twigs, bark, moss, feathers, and hair. Inside the home, they are found in attics, cavity walls, lofts, roof spaces, and crawl spaces.
