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 in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati

January 27th, 2018

Spidey Squirrels are invading homes in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati!!!

Did you Know that squirrels are a lot like Spiderman?  No, they don’t wear red tights and no they can’t shoot spider webs, but they can maneuver a building a lot like Spiderman. Recently I had an encounter with “Spidey Squirrel” at a client’s house in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I was at the client’s house looking for sign of squirrel entry.  I found a hole in an eave of the house so I made my way towards the hole. Suddenly a squirrel shot out of the hole missing my face by a few inches.  The squirrel then leaped two stories from the roof to the ground. When I climbed down off the roof I made my way to the back of the house and wouldn’t you know it, there was Spidey Squirrel.  The squirrel then scampered back to the house and climbed right up the brick towards the roof just like he was Spiderman.

I am often asked by new clients, “If I cut down the tree next to my house, will that prevent squirrels from getting into my house?”.  Although it could help a little, the answer is “No”. In my experience (like my encounter with Spidey Squirrel), squirrels in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati will climb up almost any surface to access a home’s attic, soffits, and chimney. The best option to stop a squirrel from entering your home is not to cut down the beloved family tree.  It is to remove the squirrel.  If trapping a nuisance squirrel is not a job you are interested and/or capable of taking on, don’t worry, Tri-State Wildlife Management has been performing squirrel removal in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati for over 15 years.  Our team will safely and humanly handle your squirrel removal needs. We are a full-service company and specialize in removing wildlife from your property, as well as making proper repairs to restore and protect your property.

Moral of the story is; if you have a tree next to your house that you like, don’t cut it down because you think it will keep squirrels away from your roof line.  Let Spidey Squirrel be a prime example, that if a squirrel has fidelity to your home the best way to stop them is to hire a nuisance wildlife control operator that specializes in squirrel removal.  If you are in the Northern Kentucky, Greater Cincinnati area, Tri-State Wildlife Management is your company for all of your wildlife removal needs.  Call us at (859)635-0037.
