Squirrels are cute and playful creatures that bring joy to our backyards. However, when they invade our homes and properties, they can cause damage and pose health risks. They are known for chewing on electrical wires, insulation, and wooden structures. They can also create nests in your attic, chimney, or walls, leading to foul odors and potential health hazards. Moreover, squirrels can carry diseases such as rabies and fleas, which can be transmitted to humans and pets.

To prevent squirrel infestations, it’s essential to keep your property clean and tidy. Store food items in airtight containers and dispose of garbage properly. Make sure to seal all entry points to your home, including vents, chimneys, and roof lines. Trim trees and bushes that are close to your home, as squirrels can use them as a bridge to access your property.
