Are squirrels invading your home?
Squirrels are a menace to your home and should never be allowed to settle in your home or office, as they can cause severe damage to the home and workplace. They made their maiden introduction in 1891. They were brought in for research purposes, and a couple of dozens were brought in, but their numbers have risen tremendously, and due to the fact that there are no natural predators for them here, they now range in the millions. Before an infestation spreads into your home, ring Harwood Squirrel Trapping for a treatment plan for Getting Rid Of Squirrels.
Squirrels have front teeth that grow indefinitely throughout their lifetime, and they have an insatiable need to constantly gnaw on hard objects to wear them down. There will be items in your home, and recent studies have found that they will gnaw into insulated wires resulting in loss of internet, downtime for your alarm or monitoring systems and mainly once they chew electrical wires, this can cause fires that could end up costing you your entire home. If you act upon noticing them, a lot of this can be avoided, so don't wait. Call Harwood Squirrel Pest Control.
Squirrels are an invasive species, and due to their rapid breeding, they are now a considerable threat to native species. They are usually seen running through trees and branches. They will use this very method to access your rooftop and gnaw into the rooftop to create an opening. Having done so, they will then proceed to establish themselves in your home. This is usually done in the decking or places like sheds, garages, roofspaces, lofts, and chimneys. These are just a few of their locations, and you should work under the pretence that they may nest virtually anywhere in your house or office.
Noteworthy points about squirrels
A grey squirrel is a small, rodent-like person. The animal has a round head and large, circular eyes that are slightly set apart on either side of the nose. The black colour of their eyes against their pale-coloured face helps them to blend in with their surroundings during different seasons of the year. They weigh between 160g and 280g. The largest difference between males and females is that females' front paws toes are shorter than males due to carrying an offspring in a pouch that needs parental care for about six months after birth.
Grey squirrels breed once a year, usually in February or March. Gestation lasts for about 44 days. Newborns are blind and naked, weighing about 2 grams. Weaning takes place at six weeks of age, and they reach sexual maturity at about one year old.
Communication among squirrels is done through various vocalizations, including whistles, chirps, and chatters. Additionally, they communicate using body language, such as tail movements and facial expressions.
Squirrels are omnivorous, which means that they eat a variety of foods. They eat both plant and animal material. The plant material they eat includes nuts, seeds, fruits, and green vegetation. The animal material they eat includes insects, eggs, other small animals, and carrion (dead animals).
Squirrels cache (store) food for later use. They bury food in the ground, in tree hollows, or under leaves. Cached food helps them to survive during times when food is scarce.
