We are getting more and more calls for squirrels in the attic.
If you are hearing the noises at night in your attic, more than likely you have a flying squirrel issue. In order to properly and permanently solve the problem, it is highly recommended that the entire home be wildlife proofed. This means that any potential entry (any gap or crack that’s the width of two fingers) must be sealed. Flying squirrels are nocturnal animals that are not much bigger than a large hamster and they can glide for over 150 ft. They are colony animals and its not uncommon to remove 10 or more per home. This makes flying squirrels difficult to trap and exclude. We offer a long term solution that is backed by a 5 year guarantee on the work.
If you are hearing the noises during the morning and afternoon, the issue is more than likely grey squirrels. Grey squirrels are much larger than flying squirrels. These are the same squirrels that you commonly see. We also offer full exclusion for these as well. The grey squirrels are moving in to prepare their late winter nest and have babies. It is not uncommon for her late summer adolescent young to follow as well. On average, we remove 3-6 squirrels in addition to the nest of baby squirrels.
If you are hearing a slow…”scratch…scratch…scratch..” noise, there’s a good chance that you actually have a mouse issue. This can be handled by your local pest control company. If you do not have one, I highly recommend www.NCPestControl.com .
