Do you Have Squirrels in the Attic?

If you hear small rodent feet within your walls or attic, you should consider professional squirrel removal from Centurian Services. The best way to get rid of squirrels in your attic or house is to seal up all the entry points. However, it is not that simple.

You don’t want to seal up entry points while squirrels are inside your home, so observe their habits to decide when to take action. Do they leave for food during the day or at night? When they are out of the house is best time to seal up their doorways. Make sure shrubs and trees are farther from the house than your particular species of squirrel can leap: about 5 feet is a good distance to prevent squirrels from jumping inside.

During the day, head up to the attic and look for light shining through cracks or holes in your home’s exterior. Squirrels come in through holes as small as 2 inches or as big as a baseball. If you can’t access the attic from inside, use binoculars and watch from your lawn chair outside. Are the squirrels going in through siding, soffits, fascia, roof vents, or the foundation?
