The squirrel that lives outside provides cheap entertainment as it lives its typical squirrel life, but the squirrel invading your home's attic or garage needs trapping and removal. Your safe and warm home provides the perfect home for a squirrel, too, in its exclusion of inclement weather and predators. Let's see how Cumming squirrel removal solves your squirrel problems.

A hidden crack in your home's chimney, roof or attic allows a squirrel to chew the right size entry hole. A squirrel survives in the wild by camouflaging its living space and the small hole may be invisible to you on the ground, but once a squirrel settles in the problems begin. Squirrel manure pathogens may cause disease in humans, and their parasites breed easily inside your home. With their teeth designed to crack hard nut shells, they chew on your attic's stored goods, duct work, and wiring. In fact, a squirrel that chews wiring contributes to thousands of house fires each year. For these important reasons, removal is necessary.


Since squirrels are such nuisances, you must remove them and seal all entry points. Like any creature, a squirrel seeks a safe place to nest and tunnels in attic insulation proves a perfect nursery. The first step to removal involves exclusion. This means a check for all entry points from basement to rooftop eaves. Removal of droppings and contaminated insulation remains paramount to sanitation and a Cumming registered professional is best for the job. Our removal experts use professional equipment to end your problems.

Exclusion: Now comes the next step in removal, which is sealing each gap in your home's protective "skin." A squirrel can wriggle through gaps in attic and basement vents, eaves, utility line and drainpipe joinings, and chimneys. Our exclusion plan ensures that a squirrel will not re-enter by sealing every gap after a painstaking inspection. In addition, exclusion of a squirrel from leaping to your home from overhanging tree branches means pruning back the limbs.

Live Traps: If the squirrel problem persists, then trapping is the next step. Squirrels scent the baits in the traps and the traps are removed with the animals inside. The need for removal via trapping may only be temporary before the completion of the exclusion plan. Without sealing entry points, the pests could re-enter the property.

The common varieties of flying, red, gray and fox squirrels display different habits. For example, tree species such as the fox, red, and gray species scout for food in the early morning and late afternoon with flying squirrels active at night. The typical diet for a squirrel is bark, fruit, nuts, plant materials, and insects. A squirrel eats what it can immediately and stores the surplus for the winter months.

Since squirrels bear young twice a year with the exception of flying squirrels' once annually, you may observe squirrels scampering around your cozy home's exterior. Depending on the species, squirrels deliver a litter of three to eight in the early spring and late summer. Common indications requiring Cumming expert attention include finding droppings, seeing gnaw damage, and hearing activity. Squirrels scratch and run about in your attic and inside your walls, particularly during the day. You may call us for a professional removal consultation.
