Why Do Squirrels Pose a Threat?

Squirrels on your property or in your home is a recipe for disaster. Anything that is not metal, concrete, or stone is susceptible to squirrel damage. Your home serves as a dry and cozy location for squirrels to nest. Nesting squirrels are known to chew siding, enter chimneys and destroy eaves. Plus, watch your insulation. This soft, warm place keeps squirrel babies safe. Squirrels will shred and trample it to make sure the spot they’ve chosen is perfect for their little ones, causing you to  need to replace your insulation.

The parts of your home that are made of wood are prone to the most damage. Squirrels can chew holes in your roof to gain access to the inside of your home, creating entryways for other rodents as well. These holes can cause structural damage to your home and shingles. Roof damage created by squirrels makes your home susceptible to leaks and water damage. Finally electrical wiring is not off limits for squirrels. These rodents will chew through these wires putting your home at risk for an electrical fire.
