Now that the weather is colder squirrels are seeking out new places to den. Don’t let your cozy attic be one of them.

Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati 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 residing 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 construction gaps, weakened areas, and even perfectly constructed and maintained areas on a home.

It is important to point out that squirrels not only chew holes to gain access 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 important to make sure that all squirrels have excited the premises prior to making repairs. There’s nothing that can ruin a thanksgiving dinner worse than the smell of a rotting animal carcass in the attic. 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.

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 Ft. Thomas, KY: As the days turn colder, squirrels are preparing for winter. They are gathering and burying food, fattening up, and looking for a nice, snug home. During the warmer months, squirrels like to occupy trees. This arrangement isn’t desirable for the colder months, however, so squirrels will take advantage of the warmth found in man-made structures. Attics and chimneys, as well as dormers and soffits, are favorite winter homes for squirrels. Squirrels will take advantage of small construction gaps in a structure, but even if a home is sealed tight, it can still be vulnerable.  Squirrels have teeth that continuously grow, so they must continuously gnaw to keep them short. Unfortunately, there isn’t much that they won’t gnaw, including building materials on homes. This is why, to some degree or another, all homes are vulnerable for a squirrel invasion, even with no existing construction gaps.

Squirrels typically return to the same winter den site, so if you’ve had a squirrel problem before, chances are they’ll be back. It may come as a surprise, but squirrels are one of the more dangerous animals to have in your home. It all comes back to their persistent gnawing. First, they can weaken rafters if they gnaw enough, and more concerning even is that they can cause an electrical fire by gnawing on wires.

Neighborhoods with an abundance of mature trees, such as Ft. Thomas, tend to also has an abundance of squirrels. Although most of those squirrels are content to stay in the trees during the warmer months, they are now beginning to search for a warmer winter home. As mentioned above, this typically means looking for shelter within a man-made structure, such as a house.

Now is the time to thoroughly inspect the outside of your home for any construction gaps or at-risk areas. Tri-State Wildlife Management offers affordable home inspections that will not only identify areas in need of repair, but can also give you peace of mind.
