Squirrels in the Attic
When it comes to squirrels, attic is one of the places that makes a perfect den for them in winter. It’s insulated, warm, covered and has plenty of resources for building a nest. Squirrels are likely to attempt to enter your attic as the weather starts getting cooler around October. And because squirrels are already excellent jumpers and climbers, they usually can easily make a leap from a nearby tree.
Squirrels in the Walls
Squirrels don’t typically nest inside walls if the attic is available, but they can use wall cavities to stash their food. Baby squirrels can also fall inside the walls by accident and sit there unable to climb out. If you hear persistent scratching at the bottom of a wall, it’s possible you have a little critter who is stuck and needs help.
Squirrels in the Chimney
Sometimes, squirrels may choose your chimney to nest during the summer months. Other times they may fall in by accident or explore the chimney out of curiosity. In either case, you would typically hear scratching somewhere behind the mantel of your fireplace. Don’t light a fire if you suspect that there is a squirrel or other critter in your chimney—call an Olney squirrel removal professional instead!

Squirrel removal may sound easy, but it isn’t. Out technicians often make it look like it’s something anyone could do, but in reality it takes years of experience to do it right. One of the biggest mistakes we see homeowners make when they attempt squirrel removal on their own is sealing entry holes with squirrels still inside the attic. This typically leads to one of the two scenarios: the squirrels die and cause a very unpleasant odor, or the squirrels make a new hole in your attic or in your walls, exiting into your living space.
It’s crucial to get the squirrels out of the attic, chimney or walls before sealing their entry points. We do this by using one-way doors and live traps. Sometimes, this requires physically removing squirrels from the attic if they are too young to leave the nest on their own.
If you are looking for someone to remove the squirrels and do it right the first time, we are your guys!
