How To Keep Squirrels Out Of Your Attic

Squirrels are a common presence in neighborhoods throughout Jacksonville. These energetic critters can be entertaining to watch, though they can also become a nuisance by raiding bird feeders, chewing on roofing materials, and sometimes even invading our attics. If squirrels get into your attic, they can cause damage with their gnawing behaviors and gain access to other parts of your home.

Squirrel Removal Guide

Check out these tips for keeping squirrels out of your attic:

  • Seal off any possible entry points, which can include holes in your roof and siding as well as uncovered vent openings. Squirrels are industrious animals that will not hesitate to take advantage of any opening they find to get in. Use a durable sealant to close off holes and place mesh covers over vent openings to keep them out.
  • Trim back any tree branches which overhang your roof or even grow close to it. As capable climbers and jumpers, squirrels can easily use these branches to access your roof and seek out a way into your attic.
  • Keep bird feeders away from the perimeter of your home. The more squirrels come to associate your home with food, the more likely they are to invade your attic. Placing bird feeders on the edge of your property can reduce the risk of a squirrel infestation.
  • Place tight lids on any outdoor garbage cans. Squirrels won’t hesitate to raid an easily accessible garbage can and, just like bird seed, these free meals can tempt them to move into your attic.
