The squirrel is a small rodent that is found in many parts of the world. They were introduced to England in the late 1800s and have since become an invasive species. Squirrels are known for their destructive behaviour, as they often gnaw on wires and other objects in order to file down their teeth. Their bites can also cause diseases in humans or other animals.
Vermin like squirrels are known to cause mass destruction. They will usually enter the home through any available open spaces. When there is none open to them, they will put their teeth (that grow throughout their lives) to good use by biting into your thatched or shingled roof and leaving open holes allowing water to flow through, causing rot and dampness. This is only a start as they are known for chewing into insulated wiring and piping like water pipes and air conditioner pipes. Why, you may ask?

The grey squirrel is a small, rodent-like creature found in North America. They are usually about 12 inches long, including their tail, and weigh about 1/2 pounds. There is reddish-brown fur on their backs and sides, with lighter fur on their bellies and throat. They have large ears and sharp teeth, and the males and females look very different from each other. The males are much bigger than the females, and they have a black stripe running down the length of their spine. Their tails are also significantly longer, averaging about 7 inches long. Grey squirrels live in forests, parks, and gardens near homesites.
Squirrels can spread diseases like salmonella, which can contaminate food. They can also spread the plague, a deadly virus that can be passed on through bites or scratches. Plague is often fatal if left untreated, so it is important to get vaccinated if you contact a rabid squirrel.
Squirrels use various squirrel communication methods for talking to each other. For example, they use vocalizations such as chirping, barking, and whining to communicate aggression, fear, pain, or pleasure. They also use body language such as posturing, tail wagging, and facial expressions to share their emotions. In addition, they use scent markings to leave behind information about themselves and their territory.
Squirrels are omnivorous, which means that they eat both plants and animals. Their diet consists of seeds, nuts, fruits, vegetables, insects, and other small animals. They typically cache (or bury) food in the ground so that they can come back to it later. This is a survival tactic that helps them to be prepared for lean times.
