Squirrels may be small and cute, but don’t get fooled by their appearance. They may not have much strength in their paws, but teeth are their real weapon. Squirrels have very strong front teeth that they use to open nuts, but these teeth can also be used to chew a hole in your roof. A squirrel would jump on your roof and look for any existent openings or weak spots it can widen or weaken even further. On homes that don’t have a drip edge installed behind the gutter, we often see holes made by squirrels from chewing on the fascia board. They see a gap and make it just big enough to fit through.
Quite often, squirrels chew holes in the roof itself, especially around chimneys, dormers and plumbing vents. This causes your roof to develop leaks, which is often how homeowners discover a squirrel problem. However, keep in mind that the chewing doesn’t stop when squirrels get inside your attic. Their teeth grow constantly, so shewing helps keep the length in check. Inside your attic, squirrels will chew on wooden beams, electrical wires and anything else they can find.
At Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control, we take pride in our job and make sure we do squirrel removal right the first time. If you have no experience dealing with squirrels, we strongly recommend hiring a professional. Every now and then, we get called to a house where a homeowner unknowingly sealed a squirrel inside the attic. If this happens, the panicking squirrel may start chewing in a different area, causing more damage. Or the animal may die inside, causing an unpleasant odor in the attic and throughout the house if it’s warm outside.
Our Potomac squirrel removal pros take the time to get all squirrels out of the attic before repairing the damage and sealing their entry points. Quite often, squirrels choose to nest in our attics because it’s a warm and safe place to overwinter and raise their babies. When these babies are too small, they often need to be located and removed manually from an attic. Our technicians always strive to keep wildlife families together and transfer them to rehabilitation facilities as needed.
