Watching squirrels at the park is great. Watching them wreak havoc on your home? Not so much. Squirrels can cause damage to your home and may carry transmittable diseases, so it’s important to keep them out.
Potential Damage Caused by Squirrels
From the moment a squirrel enters your home, it may be causing damage. Squirrels often chew through siding and soffits to make their way inside. Once in your home, here are some of the problems they may cause:
- Leaving urine and droppings which could spread diseases
- Chewing wires that may lead to a short, creating a fire hazard
- Getting into your pantry and contaminating your food
- Building nests in the walls of your home
All of this damage can be minimized by removing squirrels from your home as soon as possible.
