Squirrel Trapping, Exclusion, and Squirrel Damage Repair Services
Squirrels are common throughout the U.S. with northern New Jersey being home to the Eastern Gray Squirrel and Southern Flying Squirrel. Squirrels are prolific chewers and can cause thousands of dollars of damage to your home eaves and attics when they decided to move inside your home.
Commonly seen burying nuts in lawns and snitching birdseed from feeders, the Eastern Gray Squirrel is approximately six to eight inches in length and is recognizable by its gray color, white underbelly and long, bushy tail. The Eastern Gray Squirrel is active during the day unlike its nocturnal cousin the Southern Flying Squirrel. Just four inches long, the tailless Southern Flying Squirrel uses special folds of skin between its front limbs and body to glide from tree to tree.
Adept climbers, squirrels usually build large, messy nests of sticks and leaves high in the tops of trees. It's when they seek shelter in the attic or crawl space of your home that squirrels become a problem. The pitter-patter of little feet across your ceiling is not a good sign! It signals the back-and-forth trek of squirrels carrying nesting materials and food hoards into your home.
When squirrels nest indoors they bring with them fleas, ticks, mites, worms and other harmful parasites. Squirrels foul their nesting sites with fecal droppings and urine that can soak into insulation and through ceilings. Known rabies carriers, squirrels pose a serious health threat to your family, particularly if they find a way to move from the attic into your living space.
Squirrels Can Cause Serious Damage to Your Home!
Incredibly destructive gnawers, squirrels must chew constantly to keep their always-growing teeth sharp and worn down to the proper length so they don't interfere with eating. Squirrels will use their teeth to enlarge small cracks, gnawing large holes in roofs, soffits, fascia and siding to gain entry into your home.
These nuisance pests will gnaw right through shingles and underlying sheet wood to get into toasty attics. If they chew through electrical wires in your attic, squirrels can cause electrical shorts and have been known to cause fires.
