Squirrels in your home is a recipe for disaster. They usually get into your property by gnawing on your thatched or shingled roof, ripping into weak spots with their teeth that grow inches each year every year, they have a need to file them down, and they will use hard items in your home to do this. Roof support beams and rafters are typical for them to chew into, leaving them substantially weaker and to a point of collapse. They will also chew on plastics, insulated wires and even wood to build a home for themselves, resulting in costly repairs for you or worse they can lead to loss of internet or your CCTV camera systems to be disabled entirely and the harshest of them all fires that can lead to your losing your home. All this can be avoided by simply picking up the phone and speaking to Clayton Squirrel Pest Control.
Here are a few facts to help you along in your quest for a squirrel free home
Since squirrels nest in trees, crevices, and building eaves, it's essential to be aware of their possible presence when indoors. They usually build their drey, or nest, in a sheltered location such as attics, garages, crawl spaces, chimneys. And they love most roof spaces. Suppose you have a squirrel problem in your home. In that case, you should contact a removal specialist to help take care of the situation.
Although they may seem harmless, squirrels can do much damage to trees. By stripping the bark off of trees, they are able to get to the sap inside, which is their main source of food. This can stunt the growth of a tree or even kill it. So it's important to be aware of this when living in an area with a lot of squirrels.
Squirrels breed twice a year, usually in the spring and fall. Gestation takes 44 days. They are blind and toothless when they are born and weigh only about 1/10 of an ounce. Weaning occurs at about eight weeks of age, and they can reproduce at about six months old.
Diseases associated with squirrels
Grey squirrels are associated with several illnesses, some of which can be transferred to humans. Plague, Squirrel pox, salmonella, leptospirosis, and tularemia are just a few examples of this. Suppose you have had contact with squirrels and think you may have any of the above-listed illnesses. A doctor should be consulted for further help, particularly if you or someone you love has a compromised immune system.
