Are squirrels invading your home?
There is nothing good about squirrels around the house. They must be dealt with early. The squirrel was introduced in the Victorian era. Their numbers have grown since then, from a few hundred to now a few million. Squirrels transmit diseases, and they are an invasive species. Once they get into your home, they will cause extensive damage, mainly in the rafters and beams, which makes the house unsteady.
Due to their evergrowing teeth, squirrels can chew through the hardest possible items you can think of, and that's a worrying factor for homeowners because once they are in your home, they will strip the wood of wooden support structures like soffits and rafters. They also commonly chew through insulated wires such as electrical cords and any other wires in the home. In addition, they cause significant damage to cavity wall insulation because they nest between them and cause weak spots that uses more electricity to function, resulting in an upward rise in your electric bill.
