Squirrels are a fascinating creature. Many people like to view them since they race around in the lawn and trees, carrying their collected food, playing, building houses, etc.. They are generally viewed raiding a bird feeder and many of us have had fun viewing the creative ways these creatures attempt to get into a bird feeders, even those with “Squirrel guards” on them. I’ve personally observed squirrels leaping from high up in a tree to attempt to land on the bird feeder at the center of the lawn, they then miss and return up the tree and do it again til they triumph.
There is a negative to these animals lots of individuals, (possibly like yourself), do not know, and that’s the territorial side. Squirrels guard their land and claim it their own different way. Dogs, cats, and other wild animals claim their land by leaving pee in places. This is a means to mark their land in your yard or someone elses.
If they did not chew on things which are hard, their teeth would grow in a half circle and become so long they could not eat and they’d starve to death. Wood is an excellent material and your house usually is filled with it.
I hear noises in the attic in the early morning, during the day at various times, and then right about dark. At night I hear a whole lot of sound and then it quiets down a few hours after dark, do you understand what this sort of sound may be?
Squirrels usually spend their evening out and about, occasionally visiting their den site (your attic) at various times, then return through the night if their major predators like hawks, owls, etc are outside hunting. What we do for you is come out and perform a review for free and ascertain precisely what the sound is and determine where they entered your dwelling. At the point we will install squirrel traps. We will also provide you with a quote for repairs in which the entry point closed off to make sure that this problem doesn’t occur again.
Once inside your attic they discover that it is similar to a glorified hollow tree, but so much warmer and safer. You hear the sound, and wonder what’s happening up there, and they’re naturally curious and will occasionally wonder what’s happening down there and then chew a hole merely to look and then cover it up with insulating material that’s available. It generally does not indicate they’re moving into the living room.
Squirrels may be controlled when they’re chewing on your house and gaining entry to the attic. The first step to fix the dilemma is to contact Sarasota Animal Services, a specialist in your area.
