A Scurry From Above – Noises in the Attic

April 3rd, 2018

It’s morning and you are enjoying a nice hot cup of coffee and you suspect you hear something in the attic above your head. You turn down the news and then there’s nothing. A few days later the same thing happens so you tell your spouse that you’ve been hearing noises in the attic. They glance up in the attic, but everything appears as normal and they haven’t heard anything strange, so the sounds are attributed to the house moving and settling as the temperatures outside change. Two weeks later you hear scurrying and a full-blown ruckus above your head. You have a problem. You have an animal intruder! Scenarios like this one are common during the months of April and May and are most likely attributed to squirrels. Female squirrels often use attics, chimneys, soffit areas, and gutter lines as nest sites and dens to raise their young. Squirrels are active during the day and sleep at night so noises from a family of squirrels are typically heard throughout the day.

Tree squirrels breed twice a year (December-January and May-June) with 1-7 young being born in February-March and July-August. Juvenile squirrels become active as early as six to seven weeks making their presence known to homeowners. Like many young children the normally quiet mother can’t keep her litter quiet and they can often be heard scurrying, scratching, and even barking from their living quarters. Tri-State Wildlife Management must take extra precaution when excluding squirrels out of attics and other structural voids to make sure there aren’t any juveniles trapped inside.

Squirrel Removal Newport, KY

Newport, KY Squirrel Removal: Squirrels are typical rodents found throughout the Greater Cincinnati area, so typical that it seems you see a squirrel everywhere you look. Squirrels especially thrive in areas with mature nut and fruit bearing trees, and wherever else they can find an easy food source. Many urban and suburban areas are teeming with squirrels, especially in yards with bird feeders or trees. Although squirrels may be nice to look at, they become a major nuisance when they decide to take up residence in the your attic. Squirrels are notorious chewers, and oftentimes gnaw their way right into your attic space.

Few homes are completely exempt the possibility of a squirrel invasion; however, there are many factors that make some homes more susceptible to squirrel entry than others. First, materials used to build a home matter – siding, gutters, shingles, metal, and wood, just to name a few, can all be chewed through by a squirrel. Brick, stone, and cement may be the only building materials safe from squirrel chew. Even on brick and stone houses, wood fascia, gutters, shingles, etc., are all still susceptible. The condition of a home is also important – if your home has weak or rotted areas in need of repair, your house is more vulnerable. In addition, yards with mature trees and bird feeders also attract squirrels to your home. Even with all of these factors to ponder, sometimes there seems to be no rhyme or reason to why a squirrel chose your home or business to invade.

Regardless of the reason, Tri-State Wildlife Management is here for you to solve your wildlife problem, whether squirrels are the culprit or another it’s another wild animal, such as raccoons, mice, or bats.

Ft. Mitchell, KY Squirrel Removal: The weather has turned colder, so there’s a mad rush by wildlife to finalize their plans for the winter. Squirrels are fattened, nuts are buried, and now, it’s time to find some nice, warm insulation to snuggle into. During the warm, summer months, squirrels are most comfortable denning in mature trees, but when the weather turns cold, squirrels take advantage of warmer, man-made structures. Squirrels gain access to the inside of homes (typically attics and walls) by chewing on construction material. Aside from stone, brick, and certain metals, no construction material can fully withstand the gnawing of a squirrel. Squirrels have incisors that grow continuously, and the only way to keep their teeth short and sharp is by chewing. Squirrels will take advantage of any construction gaps, weak areas, and even perfectly constructed and maintained areas on a home.

It is important to point out that squirrels not only chew holes to get into your home, but once inside, they continue to chew. This is a serious hazard, because squirrels tend to chew on electrical wires, which can cause fire. In addition, if squirrels have access to rafters over many years, the rafters can be weakened. If you use your attic for storage and have a squirrel invasion, whatever property is stored is susceptible to damage.

Unfortunately, squirrels are repeat violators – once they find a home in your home, they’ll stay there unless evicted. One of the most frustrating things for a homeowner with a squirrel issue is to repair entryways only to have a new entry chewed open by a squirrel. To prevent this situation, it is important to not only exclude violating squirrels by repairing entries and vulnerable areas, but also to trap and remove the squirrels that have made your house their home. It is also vital to repair entries and vulnerable areas with wildlife grade construction materials to help deter future squirrel or wildlife problems.

Preventive maintenance can go a long way in keeping your family and property wildlife free this winter. Tri-State Wildlife Management offers affordable, but thorough, home inspections that can identify wildlife entries and potential entries. As a full service company, TSWM offers exclusion, wildlife deterrent chimney cap installation, repairs, trapping, and removal.

The amount of mature trees in Ft. Mitchell, KY make it a squirrel haven.
