Squirrels are very adaptive and have easily made the transition from living in trees to living in your attic. Homes are like giant heated squirrel motels. There are many ways a squirrel can get into an attic and many ways a squirrel can get to your roof. One of the most common myths we hear about squirrels as a squirrel removal pest control company; is that squirrels can only jump from the trees onto the roof. This is simply not true. Through our years of squirrel removal experience we have come to find that most squirrels simply climb the side of your home. Once on your home, there are many ways that squirrels can enter into your home. Below is a list of the most common squirrel entry points we find as squirrel removal experts.

  • Ridge Vents
  • Gable Vents
  • Loose Soffit
  • Rotted Wood
  • Roof Vents
  • Exhaust Vents
  • Gaps behind Trim
  • Plumbing Vents
  • Construction Gaps
  • Above the Gutter

Squirrels are amazing climbers and chewers and this allows them to get into many places on a house. Whether it be chewing a new hole through a piece of wood fascia or squeezing through the gable vent. We specialize in protecting all of the above areas to keep your squirrels out. We do not use spray foam for squirrel proofing and do not recommend it. As a squirrel removal professional company we do not find it to be effective. Squirrels can chew, so if you fill a hole with spray foam a squirrel can simply chew back through it. Duct tape also does not work to keep squirrels out, no matter how tough you think gorilla tape is, it will not work.

We use many different products and methods to squirrel proof your home. We have developed these from years of squirrel trapping and removing programs. We have vent covers in all shapes and sizes that are completely squirrel proof and can be installed over any type of vent on your home. We also will wrap your wooden areas in metal that matches your home to prevent squirrels from chewing in. Reinforcing soffit areas that are prone to squirrels getting in will also prevent squirrel entry. But the main thing about all of our exclusion and squirrel proofing is, we use METAL  and we make it match. There is no reason why your squirrel proof home shouldn’t look just like it did before we performed a squirrel exclusion. If you are deciding which squirrel removal companies near me to choose from, ask them what materials they use to keep squirrels out. Make sure you choose the squirrel removal pest control company that uses a material that is actually squirrel proof.
