Tree squirrels are rodents with large bushy tails, and are native to Europe, Asia and the Americas. Tree squirrels are found in forest areas throughout most of the United States. Many species have adapted well to suburban and city life. Occasionally, these squirrels enter buildings and cause damage or disturbance. The most common species that become pests are the gray squirrel, red squirrel, flying squirrel, and fox squirrel.
Tree squirrels usually build their nests in trees. They also may store food and find shelter in attics and garages. Probably the primary way squirrels become pests is by scrambling and scratching inside attics and in wall voids. They may travel on power lines and short out transformers, and they like to gnaw on wires. In fact, our most frequent service calls involve removing squirrels in attics.
Ground squirrels and chipmunks occasionally become pests when they burrow around building foundations or in lawns, golf courses or gardens. Squirrel control methods are usually only required in severe infestations. If the infestation is severe, Critter Control may use lethal methods of control, such as rodenticides, non-lethal control methods, such as trapping and habitat modification, or a combination of methods to effectively get rid of the squirrel problem.
