Are squirrels damaging your home?
Though they may seem cute and harmless, squirrels can be a considerable nuisance when they invade your home. In addition to spreading diseases, these pests can also cause significant property damage. Therefore, if you have a squirrel problem, it's important to take action quickly before the situation gets out of control.
One of the biggest dangers of having squirrels in your home is that they can spread diseases. They are known to carry ticks, fleas, and mites, which can all spread harmful diseases to humans and animals. Therefore, if you have kids or pets, it's crucial to get rid of the squirrels quickly.
In addition to spreading diseases, squirrels can also cause a lot of damage to your home. They love to chew on wires and insulation, which can create a fire hazard. They can also damage roofing, windows, and other parts of your home. Due to their teeth growing at a rate of around 6 inches per year, squirrels have a constant need to file them down, or they will become too large. Squirrels can even go through concrete if needed. Because of this, it's imperative to remove them immediately, and that's where Moss Side Squirrel Trapping comes in. In addition, we offer Moss Side Squirrel Pest Control for all sorts of pests.
Handy information about squirrels.
Trees, rocks, and buildings' eaves are common places for squirrels to nest. Most indoor nests are found in locations such as attics, garages, crawl spaces, chimneys, and roofs. However, they are particularly adaptable animals that will take advantage of any opening that is available to them.
One of the most common types of squirrel found in England is the grey squirrel. On average, they stand between 10 and 18 inches tall.
Their ears are around 4 inches long. Their eyes are black with a very light tint to them. They have 38 teeth on each side of the upper jaw. They have 13 hair-covered toes on their front paws and 14 on their hind paws. Males grow to be six or seven times as large as females when fully grown; this size difference disappears after two years in captivity or about four years in the wild for females and five for males. Females mature at age 1½ years but can do so earlier; males may take up to 3½ years to become full grown. Fully-grown males weigh an average of 440 g (15.2 oz), while females weigh around 320 g (11.3 oz).
There are a few diseases that squirrels spread. One is called squirrel pox, which is a virus disease that affects both squirrels and humans. As with most contagious diseases, it can be passed on through contact with the animal's blood, saliva, or urine. A portion of contaminated food or beverage can also spread the infection. Symptoms of the infection include lesions on the skin, fever, and swollen glands.
It has already been mentioned that squirrels are an invasive species and can cause a lot of problems if not dealt with as soon as possible.
