Squirrels may be the most commonly seen creature in the suburban outdoors, but they belong there, not in your San Antonio home. Often times, squirrels will be on the hunt for food and shelter if it is scarce outside; this is what draws them to your home. Did you know squirrels can get into holes less than two inches wide? They can also claw their way into homes through damaged soffits and eaves, but we can help prevent this. Wildlife X Team® San Antonio will work diligently to remove squirrels, clean up squirrel damage, and make sure you don't get squirrels in your home in the future. Call Wildlife X Team® San Antonio at 830.253.2810 today to solve your squirrel problems.
What Kind of Damage Do Squirrels Cause?
One of the most common squirrel complaints we hear about regarding squirrels is the damage they can cause inside your Live Oak, Universal City, Leon Valley, Selma, New Braunfels, Canyon Lake, Schertz, Timberwood Park, Boerne, Cibolo, Stone Oak, Hollywood Park, Shavano Park, Fredericksburg, Spring Branch, Fair Oaks & Alamo Heights home. Squirrels in the attic and squirrels inside the walls are common squirrel nesting areas. Squirrels also:
- Tear insulation to use for making nests, drastically impacting the energy efficiency of your home
- Use attics to raise their babies, which presents an even bigger issue for removal
- Soil rooms with urine and feces, both of which can be health hazards
- Terrorize native songbirds and run them off birdfeeders in a search of food
How Do Squirrels Get Inside?
Compromised structures like holes in roofs, foundations, and siding allow squirrels to get into your home easily. They can also chew through shingles, siding, and get in through open windows or doors (sometimes by accident). Chimneys are another weak point through which the rodents gain entry.
