Why Squirrels Chose Your Home

If you have ongoing problems with squirrels on your property, you may start thinking that they have some sort of personal vendetta against you. However, for wildlife it’s never personal and most of their decisions come down to instincts and opportunity. The squirrel’s instinct is to seek a safe, dry and warm place to give birth to its babies. And if your home is old, neglected or poorly maintained, there is an opportunity for squirrels to get in.

How Squirrels Get Into Your Attic

Squirrels can usually easily get on your roof from nearby trees. They are excellent jumpers and gaining access to your roof is usually not a problem. Once on your roof, a squirrel will inspect it from all angles, prying things open and looking for easy gaps or holes to get inside. Squirrels are fairly small critters, so as long as the head fits, the entire body should fit too.

Sometimes, squirrels find suitable holes they can use to access your attic with no effort. Other times, they may find a small gap and widen it by chewing until the squirrel can fit though. Here are some of the common entry points around your home squirrels may use:

  • Rotten soffits
  • Missing drip edge flashing
  • Poor seals around the roof dormer
  • Unscreened gable vents
  • Ridge vents without end caps
  • Roof vents

Watch this video showing a squirrel that chewed a hole in a perfectly fine roof vent. This tells you that even if your house is well-maintained, squirrels may still attempt to get in:
