Homeowners in Fulton are constantly looking for ways to protect their property from damage. This could be damage from strangers, weather, or wildlife. As the weather gets colder, squirrels will become more active throughout the state, including Fulton. While squirrels may not seem like a major threat to your Fulton home, they can cause serious damage to your property if left unattended. Squirrel infestation prevention is your first line of defense against squirrel damage to your Fulton home. There are simple and easy ways to prevent squirrels from entering your home and causing major damage to your property.
Squirrel Infestation Prevention
- Examine your home for gaps or openings where squirrels could gain access inside. Use mesh wiring to close the gaps to prevent them from entering.
- Check your fencing for gaps as well. Mesh wiring can also work with your fencing.
- Check your attic for holes or gaps.
- Cut down tree branches that reach the roof of your home. Squirrels can run across branches to reach your roof, causing damage.
- If you have wires that run to your roof or attic, cover them with plastic piping. The smooth piping will prevent squirrels from running across to gain access to your home.
- Use mesh wiring to enclose tree trunks in your yard. This will prevent squirrels from climbing the trees and causing damage.
