It is most common for squirrels to enter attics from September through to May.

Often home owners hear noise coming from the chimney and discover squirrels denning in the chimney. Baltimore squirrel control experts (443-417-3137) remove squirrels from the chimney and install a squirrel proof chimney cap to prevent squirrels from re-entering the chimney. It is never a good idea to start a fire in your fireplace if you have wildlife living in the chimney. The animal will become overwhelmed by smoke and it will not be able to climb out the top of the chimney. It may also create a fire hazard or you will have a dead animal in the chimney and it will smell up your home for several weeks. Squirrels can also create a fire hazard in the attic when they chew on electrical wires in the attic. Over 25,000 homes burn down every year because squirrels chew on electrical wires in attics. If you have any questions about squirrels in attics chewing on electrical wires and creating fire hazards contact Lutherville Volunteer Fire Company, 1609 Bellona Ave, Lutherville-Timonium, 21093 or call them at their non-emergency number 410-887-7778 or visit their website at http://www.lvfc.com/ .
