Covington, KY Squirrel Removal and Exclusion: Are squirrels invading your home and eating away at your soffits and eves? Squirrels can be one of the most destructive home-intruding animals.  They often gnaw on wood, cables or electrical wiring and almost any stored item.  The gnawing of wire is perhaps the scariest damage they do – stripping the insulation from the wires increases the chances of a short and the risk of fire. If a female and young are denning in your attic or a crevice of your home, now is the perfect time to begin a removal and exclusion program. Juvenile squirrels are exploring outside of their den sites independently.  This means that if you have squirrels denning in your home, they can be removed through trapping instead of attempting to retrieve the young by hand. Just last week, extra precautions still had to be taken to ensure all juveniles were accounted for because of their lack of mobility. In addition to their ability to venture outside, mobility might also mean an increase in squirrel noises coming from your attic.

If you suspect squirrels are in your attic, hear noises in the attic or have squirrels crossing the roof, call Tri-State Wildlife Management.  We are experts in eliminating squirrel problems through our squirrel removal and exclusion services.  We can diagnose your problem, remove the squirrels, and provide the necessary repairs to cover holes and construction gaps that are allowing them entry into your home or business.

Erlanger, KY Squirrel Removal (41018): Do you hear noise coming from your attic? Do you hear scratching or running, especially during the daylight hours? If you answered yes to these questions, you may have a squirrel(s) living in your attic. Squirrels can be one of the most destructive home-intruding animals.  They often gnaw on wood, cables or electrical wiring, and almost any stored item.  The gnawing of wire is perhaps the scariest damage they do – stripping the insulation from the wires increases the chances of a short and the risk of fire. Gnawing is exactly how squirrels gain entry into your home in the first place and can chew through most construction materials, including gutter board, soffits, louver vents, siding, and fascia board.

This time of year, Tri-State Wildlife Management (TSWM) is working with many customers who are experiencing squirrel problems. As a full service company, we initiate an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education. Tri-State Wildlife Management is oftentimes able to complete an inspection from the outside of a home, since construction gaps used by squirrels for entry begin on the outside, and because trapping ordinarily takes place on the outside of the home. However, attic inspections are also typically done this time of year because many female squirrels have had their young, but the young are not yet able to venture outside. Tri-State Wildlife Management is very adamant about the importance of determining the whereabouts of any juveniles to prevent any animal from getting blocked inside.

Even if the inspection determines that the violating animal is something other than a squirrel, Tri-State Wildlife Management can take care of it. Other wild animals besides squirrels that commonly invade the attic spaces of homes include raccoons, mice, and bats. After a home inspection, TSWM begins the removal and exclusion process. We have a carpenter on staff that effectively excludes wildlife and repairs damages, but also knows and understands the importance of aesthetics.  TSWM also offers prevention, restoration, and cleanup services.

Tri-State Wildlife Management uses a variety of products and methods for repairs, prevention, and restoration.  TSWM seals homes and businesses with specialized wildlife restoration products, installs custom and standard chimney caps, vent screens/coverings, as well as barrier walls and fencing. TSWM provides habitat modification as another preventative technique. We strive for the most humane and environmentally effective techniques for dealing with wildlife problems. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s use of modern innovative methods provides sound wildlife management services to ensure the protection of our customers’ investments and health.

Tri-State Wildlife Management had a full week coming back from the NWCOA expo. Most work TSWM is doing right now involves squirrels. Each day last week, there was between 2-5 squirrel jobs to work on. Starlings, raccoons, skunks, bats, and rats have also been on the schedule, but not nearly as much as squirrels. Squirrels take advantage of attics, soffits, gutter lines, and chimneys for comfortable nest sites. They can gnaw open a hole on most construction materials, so even the best constructed and maintained home can fall prey to a squirrel invasion.

Squirrels breed between mid-December to early January, so young may be present as early as the very end of January. For this reason, trapping at this time of year must be done very carefully to ensure no juveniles are left inside of a structure with no way out. Young begin venturing outside at about 10 to 12 weeks when they are weaned, which is roughly sometime in April or May. In order to remedy a squirrel problem during a time when young are present, TSWM must often go into an attic to reach juveniles.

Newport, KY Wildlife Removal

Newport, KY Wildlife Removal: Wild animals in the Greater Cincinnati area are actively seeking warm shelter for the cold winter. Although outdoor den sites are typical for many rodents during the hot summer, those same den sites are not ideal this time of year. Oftentimes, raccoons and squirrels seek out shelter in the attics, chimneys, and other crevices of homes and businesses. Bats and mice are also typical residences of attics. If you hear noises in your attic, ceiling, wall, or chimney, you probably have a wild animal(s) in your home.

All homes can at one time or another be vulnerable to wildlife entry; however, homes in need of repair are most at risk. “In need of repair” can mean anything as simple as a loose gutter or shingle, or as complicated as chimney tuck pointing or needing a whole new roof. Due to the historical nature of the homes in Newport, KY, many homes may be in need of some type of repair, be it simple or complicated.

It is important to mention, however, that a home or building may not need any repairs, but is still vulnerable to a wildlife invasion. Many factors play into this, so we’ll explore a few of them here:

First, if wildlife are attracted to your yard, they will be more attracted to your home as well. Mature trees, shrubbery, overgrown landscaping, bird feeders, pet food and garbage cans left outside, etc., all contribute to an increase in wildlife in your yard. If squirrels and raccoons are using your yard as a place to live in the warmer months, they may not look any further than your home as a place to stay for the winter.

Another factor that makes some homes and buildings more vulnerable than others is the type of outdoor construction materials used. Brick is less vulnerable than siding, and wood is typically the most vulnerable. Other building materials are also very important, including chimney capping, fascia, drip edge, etc.

A related factor is the quality of workmanship. In the Greater Cincinnati area, it’s common for builders to not install drip edge on homes. Lack of drip edge gives squirrels enough space to begin gnawing their way into a home. It is also enough space for raccoons to get a grip to start ripping their way in. Lastly, lack of drip edge gives bats or mice enough clearance to enter into a home.

As a full service company, Tri-State Wildlife Management initiates an Integrated Wildlife Management Program beginning with an inspection and customer education, followed by removal of intrusive wildlife and repair of wildlife damage. TSWM also offers prevention, restoration, and cleanup services.

Tri-State Wildlife Management uses a variety of products and methods for repairs, prevention, and restoration.  TSWM seals homes and businesses with specialized wildlife restoration products, installs custom and standard chimney caps, vent screens/coverings, as well as barrier walls and fencing. TSWM provides habitat modification as another preventative technique. When cleanup services are needed or desired, it typically involves the removal of bird, bat, or raccoon droppings, and contaminated debris from attics or other wildlife invaded areas. TSWM also offers dead animal removal services and MUCH MORE.

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. In addition, TSWM educates customers on how to prevent future attempts by wildlife to enter your home, including habitat modification.

The amount of mature trees in Ft. Mitchell, KY make it a squirrel haven. Squirrels can enjoy the coolness of a tree den site in the warmer months, an abundance of tree nuts in the fall, and nearby home attics provide squirrels with a comfortable den for the winter. Call Tri-State Wildlife Management if squirrels have invaded your home for the winter, or call for a preventive home inspection. TSWM is fully licensed and insured, and we stand behind all our work.

Summer is over and fall is well underway. This means that wild animals are beginning to prepare for the cold winter. Squirrels are fattening up on mast (tree fruits and nuts), which helps them stay warm and acts as a reserve when food is scarce during the winter. Squirrels also collect and bury food in shallow holes (caches) to be eaten later. Raccoons are eating more too in preparation for winter when food is more scarce. In the Greater Cincinnati area, raccoons may become inactive if there is severe cold or a long winter storm, but they typically still venture out of their dens in search of food.

Not only are squirrels and raccoons fattening up in preparation for winter, but they are also searching for a nice, comfortable den. In cities and suburbs, wildlife often takes advantage of man-made structures such as houses; more specifically, attics and chimneys. Squirrels and raccoons typically return to their previous cold weather den sites, so if wildlife has taken up residence in an attic in years past, most likely, they will return. Habituated squirrels and raccoons must be trapped and the entry points sealed in order to prevent reentry. It’s important to note that if a homeowner has had squirrel or raccoon issues in the past but did not trap the violators, they will attempt, usually successfully, to gain access into a home by chewing a new entry. In a similar scenario, if a homeowner has wildlife entry issues in the past, it may come back to haunt them. Both habituated and non-habituated squirrels and raccoons can smell the scent from an attic that has had squirrel or raccoon inhabitants, so it’s important to be on the alert for any new entries and to repair any vulnerable areas (potential entries) on a structure.

The courteous staff of Tri-State Wildlife Management  works for you to provide a cost effective solution to your wildlife intrusion and/or damage issue.
