Fairhope AL Squirrel in Attic

The squirrel is one of the most common wildlife pests in Baldwin County AL. If you hear noises in your attic, there’s a good chance it’s a squirrel in the attic. The most common noise is hearing lots of scratching. This may be a sign that a female squirrel is preparing to have her young. This should be addressed immediately before the young squirrels are old enough to also cause damage to your home, attic and electrical wiring.

Most squirrel damage in Fairhope AL comes from chewing. Since the squirrel is a rodent, their front teeth are always growing and they must constantly chew to keep their teeth sharp and at a manageable level. In nature they chew on tree bark, twigs and other natural hard items. In your Fairhope Alabama attic, they chew electrical wiring, support beams, roof braces and electrical fixtures. They can also destroy your insulation by trampling it, which reduces your R-factor. Squirrel urine and fecal matter will also collect in your insulation. Squirrels can cause damage in drywall by digging holes in the ceiling which is usually the mother squirrel exercising her back leg muscles to prepare for birth.

If you hear chewing or scratching in your attic don’t hesitate to call Wildlife Solutions of Fairhope Alabama, (251) 510-4316. The Tree Squirrel should not be a welcome guest in your home.
