We say this all the time on our Facebook page, “Are squirrels driving you nuts? Give us a call and we can Eliminate’Em.” Not only do these pesky rodents drive most people nuts with their scampering and destructive behaviors, but they really can do more damage than you think.
Squirrels chew through wood, wires, insulation, and more. Squirrels chewing through wires may cause house fires. Thankfully, homes that are up to code should have most, if not all, of their house wires encased in a metal tube that squirrels cannot chew through. Also, the breaker should do its job if wires are chewed through. But why take the chance?
Not only do squirrels chew wires which can cause power outages and fires, but squirrels can chew holes through the eaves of your home which could cause water damage. This in turn may cause mold or black mold to get into the home. Black mold is extremely dangerous and difficult to remove without a professional. A homeowner could have expensive roof and wall repairs if this happens.
Having a squirrel run around your attic for even one day can cause a lot of damage. These high energy little critters are like chewing blenders inside a house. It can take up to an entire day and then some to clean up and repair the damage. In some cases, squirrels get into the attic and chew their way through the floor! Not even to mention that the squirrels are running around the attic, urinating, and leaving fecal matter every few inches. It can leave a stinky, muddy mess!
