Squirrels are known for the havoc they can cause in the home or business; they have teeth that indefinitely grow, creating a need to file them down constantly. They will do this on any hard object, like wood, water pipes, and sometimes concrete. First, they usually find an open space and enter through that, but when there isn't one, that's when they put their teeth to work by gnawing on the roof, mainly on the valleys of the rooftop making them weak and making it easy to let water in. Then, when they are inside, they will chew on the soffits and supporting structures, making them considerably weaker, thus resulting in potential collapse.
Squirrels will chew through many types of cables, with the most damaging being electric wires resulting in fires; thus, Grasscroft Squirrel Trappings advises you to act early and maintain squirrel control when you first have a sighting.
A few interesting facts about Grey Squirrels
The Grey Squirrel's fur is, by self-admission, "mouse grey" (or silver), though looking more blue in the moonlight. Its size and weight depend on conditions: food supply, competition from other squirrels for choice nuts or acorns. Generally of about 25 cm (10 inches) long body plus a tail 7.5 to 18.3 cm (.3-.7 inches) - weight ranges 10-17 oz.), head 23 cm (9 inches), no relation to Sciurus carolinensis but some similar habits--it can be found throughout Europe and is one of the few rodent species that has proven able to live with humans.
Mostly they eat nuts and seeds, but they'll also take insects, fruit, and bark. Squirrels bury their food caches (usually acorns) in the ground to eat later.
Squirrels have two breeding seasons a year. The first season, which occurs late winter or early spring, is when the females give birth to one or two litters of young. The second breeding season is in late summer, and this is when the males compete for mates. After mating, the female squirrel builds a nest in a tree and gives birth to her young. Squirrel babies are blind and naked when they are born. They stay in the nest with their mother for about six weeks before they start to wander around on their own.
Squirrels can carry a number of diseases, the most common of which is salmonella. They can also carry other diseases, such as tularemia and plague. A bite or scratch to you or a loved one should be treated immediately. You should seek medical assistance.
