“Last year, Tom Oder wrote an article for Mother Nature Network (MNN) citing residents’ concerns over the apparently increasing squirrel population. This is an issue faced by homeowners living in several areas in the eastern United States and in several regions in Canada as well. While much has been written about the health dangers these furry creatures pose, not a lot has been written about the possible damage they cause when they gain entry to a home.
The most common entry point for squirrels is the attic. Once squirrels have made one’s home their home, the results can turn ugly as they normally produce at least two to eight offspring in each litter. However, in those cases when a homeowner suspects that there are several families of squirrels who’ve already settled in quite nicely, it’s best to call on a reliable rodent control service before things turn for the worse.”
