Late winter into early spring is the time of the year when homeowners often discover squirrels living in the attic. If you hear scratching noises in the attic or scratching noises in the ceiling, it’s a good indication that you have a squirrel problem. Female gray squirrels do a lot of scratching when they are preparing to have their babies. Often a female squirrel will scratch a hole in the sheetrock ceiling beneath the attic.
