If You've Got A Squirrel Problem, You Need Wildlife Removal You know what is one of the most adorable animals around - squirrels. Children and adults alike can be entertained by their sweet personalities; each little fur ball scampering up and down trees searching for food. However, these seemingly harmless creatures can become a big pain in a very short time period. When that happens, a wildlife removal expert should be your first call. Squirrels can be quite fond of gardens. So partial to them, in fact, that they can single-handedly demolish the most carefully kept bed of produce, roses, or any small plants that have taken root in the earth. They are especially fond of potted plants and seem to dig in them for the enjoyment of it, although they do at times bury their food for later consumption. Their tendency for destruction doesn’t reside only with plants. Naturally inquisitive animals, squirrels will claw through a wall just to get in and look around. Then, if they forget where they entered, they'll often chew another hole to get out. While you are away, they may tear up your furniture or even worse, they may decide to stay a while and build a nest in your walls. Their large front teeth are their best tool, and they must chew so as to keep them at an acceptable size. This results in a lot of seemingly random damage. You may have a serious problem to deal with if a squirrel moves into your walls. They may be cute and fluffy, but squirrels can be infected with a variety of diseases, such as Yersinia pestis, the bacteria responsible for the Black Plague. This disease, while completely unpleasant, can be treated by modern medicine; the fact is that none of the diseases that you could get from a squirrel are enjoyable. Safety hazards in your home are created by squirrels. Power cables and electrical insulation fall victim to their need to continually chew, exposing conductors and causing them to short out, which might cause a fire. This fire hazard alone should be a good enough reason to call a wildlife removal specialist. If left unchecked, a simple squirrel’s nest could morph into a significant problem. Noise in the attic and walls, unpleasant odors from all of the excrement, which by itself can bring about health issues, and structural damage are all almost certain to occur when a squirrel family moves in. The key to keeping squirrels in hand lies in prevention. If you wish to keep a squirrel out of your garden, chicken wire could become your greatest friend. And to prevent critters from digging up the soil, you could also apply chicken wire to your potted plants. If you're in squirrel country, inside the home you must keep your attic sealed. Close up all soffits and make sure that any vents are covered to prevent access. Some determined pest won't be deterred by this obstacle and will chew through any exposed wood if they want to get in badly enough. Other than prevention, there are few effective deterrents available. Spraying selected areas with diluted hot sauce might be effective because squirrels are sensitive to taste. Catching the critter and evicting him by sealing up any entry points is the most dependable treatment option. This can be a complicated and difficult job, as squirrels are cunning little animals.
