Are Squirrels Causing You Problems

The grey squirrels' appetite is what makes them destructive. They often eat bird eggs, damaging trees by stripping their bark, eating crops, digging lawns, and even breaking into buildings for food or nesting materials. Unfortunately, grey squirrels also carry diseases such as leptospirosis, which can be transmitted to humans through contact with urine or saliva of infected animals; this disease has no cure. In addition, squirrels have a knack for chewing and gnawing on wooden structures, furniture, wall insulation, shingles and many more. Due to the constant growth of their teeth, they keep their teeth filed down and sharp by chewing on hard objects.
The damage done by these creatures is extensive enough that there are professional companies that specialize in getting rid of squirrels, so you don't have to worry about them yourself! Norden Squirrel Pest Control offers a professional service.
How do squirrels get inside?
Squirrels can enter a home in various ways, but the most common way is through the roof. However, they can also get in through attic vents, chimneys, and even holes in the ceiling.
Access to food is one of the main reasons squirrels are attracted to properties. Squirrels will eat anything from seeds and nuts to fruits and vegetables. In addition, they are known for scavenging for food, so they will eat whatever is available. Another reason that squirrels may be attracted to your property is because of the shelter that it provides. Nests are usually built in trees, but squirrels will also build them in attics, garages, and other sheltered areas if there are no trees around.
A squirrel's diet
Squirrels are omnivorous and eat a variety of items in their diet. Their diet typically consists of nuts, seeds, fruits, and insects. They also eat bark and other parts of trees. Squirrels typically survive through the winter by storing food in their nests. They will eat the food they stored during the winter when supply is scarce.
Female grey squirrels breed at any time of the year. In the summer, they give birth to their babies and stay with them for 8 - 12 weeks. When they are born, baby squirrels are very small, pink and hairless. Neither of their eyes nor ears is open, and they are about the size of a thumb. Hair will develop around its nose and mouth at around five days old.
