Are there squirrels in your soffits?

They will chew into soffits if the wood is weak or there is a gap they can exploit. It takes  no time at all for them to chew a hole into a soffit and have a ready-made den site. Gray squirrels are pretty much a chainsaw with the fuzzy tail. Squirrel removal would be the first step, then fix the damage.

Nesting in chimneys.
They sometimes nest in chimneys, but this is not very common. They will explore uncapped chimneys and in doing so fall in and become stuck. It will become trapped. If the dampers closed many times the squirrel will die.
We will remove dead or live animal’s from chimneys and can install chimney caps so no other animals can occupy the chimney.

 

Why are they chewing on my attic vents, and siding?

If the animals were evicted from another home in the neighborhood, they will try to get into other homes in the same spot that their old access hole was. So if a squirrel was excluded from your neighbors house and was getting in an attic vent. That same animal will try a vent at your house, even if there is an easier access point on your house. This is because they are a creature of habit. Squirrel trapping and squirrel removal is recommended. In such cases.

Raiding birdfeeders.

It is common for them to raid and destroy birdfeeders. There are many products on the market to keep squirrels away from birdfeeders. They will keep on trying to defeat any

We normally do not exterminate squirrels, we trap and relocate.  Occasionally squirrel extermination is the only solution.  Some flying squirrel jobs are rather difficult, or the timing may be off to exclude the house and squirrel extermination is the only option other than waiting for the proper time.  Most homeowners will choose squirrel extermination instead of waiting due to lack of sleep because flying squirrels can be rather loud.  Give us a call for your CT squirrel exterminator needs.
