Check out these clues to see if Mr Squirrel and his family have moved into your attic:
1. You hear strange scratching, jumping or scampering noises in your home during the day
2. When you take a look in the attic, you find squirrel dropping
3. Your fascia boards, shingles, eaves troughs and outer panels have been damaged along the roof line.
4. Inside your home, you notice strange odors and water damage marks on your walls and ceilings from the squirrel urine and feces
Squirrels cause major damage to homes and can put the occupants at risk. Infestations in the attic can create a major fire hazard as the squirrels often make their nests by tearing up insulation and gnawing through electrical wiring. Nests can be large and contain a fair amount of dry material and when combined with exposed wiring, it can lead to a fire.
