What Are Squirrels?
Squirrels are small to medium sized rodents that belong to the family Sciuridae. They are known for their bushy tails, sharp claws, and exceptional climbing abilities. Squirrels can be found in almost every part of the world except for Australia and Antarctica. In Canada some of the most common squirrel species include the Eastern Gray Squirrel, Red Squirrel and Flying Squirrel. These animals are herbivores and feed mainly on nuts, seeds, fruits and insects.
Why Are Squirrels a Problem?
While squirrels may seem cute and harmless at first glance – they can cause a lot of damage and problems for homeowners. Some of the main issues caused by squirrels include:
Garden Damage: Squirrels are known for digging and burying their food, which can damage gardens and flower beds. They may also eat fruits and vegetables from gardens, leading to a loss of crops.
Structural Damage: Squirrels are excellent climbers and can easily make their way into attics, roofs, and chimneys. Once inside, they can cause damage by gnawing on wood, insulation, and electrical wires.
Noise and Odor: Squirrels can be noisy creatures, especially if they are living in your attic. Their constant scurrying, scratching, and chattering can disrupt your peace. They may also leave behind unpleasant odors from their droppings.
Safety Concerns: If a squirrel feels threatened or cornered, it may bite or scratch in self-defense. This can be dangerous for small children and pets who may accidentally come into contact with a squirrel.
Signs of a Squirrel Infestation
Some common signs include:
Sounds: As mentioned earlier, squirrels can be quite noisy. If you hear scratching, scurrying or chewing noises coming from your attic or walls, there may be squirrels present.
Droppings: Squirrel droppings are small, cylindrical and often found in piles. If you find these droppings around your property, it’s a sign of squirrel activity.
Damage to Structures: Look for gnaw marks on wood, insulation or wiring in your attic or walls. These are signs that squirrels may be trying to make their way inside.
Visible Squirrels: If you spot a squirrel on your property, there are likely more present. Keep an eye out for multiple squirrels gathering in one area or entering and exiting structures.
