Squirrels build their nests in a variety of places, depending on the species. Like the grey squirrel, some squirrels build their nests in trees, while others, like the red squirrel, nest in the crevices of rocks. Inside the home, they nest in lofts, crawl spaces, chimneys, deckings, under floorboards, and in our houses and sheds.
Grey squirrels are medium-sized rodents that are found in the Northwest. They have reddish-brown fur, black eyes and ears, and white stripes on their bellies. They are omnivores and eat many different kinds of food, including nuts, seeds, fruits, insects, and other small animals. Grey squirrels can be distinguished from other species of squirrel by their long tails (which can be up to half the length of their body), and the males are larger than the females. They typically live for 2-4 years.
It is common for squirrels to breed twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall. Gestation periods typically last around 44 days, and the young are usually born in late winter or early spring. Squirrel babies are born naked and blind, and at birth, they weigh just a few grams. It is believed that they are weaned at the age of 6-8 weeks , and they reach sexual maturity at approximately eight months old.
