Protecting your property from squirrels

Squirrel on Roof

Squirrels may seem harmless and cute, but they can cause significant damage to your property if they decide to make a home in or around your house. They can gnaw on electrical wires, damage insulation, and chew through wood and other building materials. To protect your property from squirrels, it’s important to take a proactive approach to deter them from your property.

One of the most effective ways to prevent squirrel conflicts is by eliminating sources of food that may attract them. This includes securing trash cans, removing bird feeders, and keeping pet food indoors. You should also trim tree branches that are close to your house, as squirrels often use these branches as a bridge to gain access to your roof.

Another important step in preventing squirrel conflicts is to create barriers that will keep them away from your property. This includes installing chimney caps or screens, sealing off entry points to your attic, and securing vents and other openings. It’s important to check your property regularly for signs of damage or entry points and to fix them promptly.

If you have squirrels on your property, it’s important not to approach or feed them. Squirrels can carry diseases and can be aggressive when they feel threatened. It’s best to leave them alone and allow them to return to their natural habitat.

If you are experiencing squirrel conflicts on your property, you should contact a wildlife expert for advice. A professional can help you identify problem areas, provide solutions, and safely remove squirrels from your property if necessary.

In conclusion, protecting your property from squirrels requires a proactive approach that includes eliminating food sources, creating barriers, and seeking professional help when needed. If you have any concerns regarding squirrels on your property or need professional help, don’t hesitate to contact Coastal Wildlife Services, we will be happy to help you.”
