Florida is home to millions of squirrels. Although their presence is not threatening, a squirrel infestation in your home can cause property damage in the attic or walls. Unfortunately, these critters chew on walls and wiring and use your insulation to make nests, which can result in thousands of dollars of damage.
Signs of an Infestation
Squirrels are sneaky and inconspicuous as they’re frightened by humans, so you may not see them running around inside. Look for the following signs to identify a squirrel infestation before damage is caused:
- Scurrying, scraping, or whining noises coming from your walls or attic
- Visible damage to your attic like chewed walls, wires, and wood
- A foul odor that won’t go away
- Stained walls and ceiling from squirrel urine and feces soaking in
If you’ve noticed any of these signs, check your roofing soffits for holes that could indicate entry, and call a professional squirrel removal service like Critter Control® of West Palm Beach immediately.
