Squirrels like to nest in warm, high places away from their predators and the elements. As a result, attics are a perfect environment for these pesky critters. Sometimes, squirrels will squeeze into attics through tiny cracks and other small openings. Other times, squirrels have been known to make their own openings into attics. Unfortunately, once squirrels have ensconced themselves in attics, they can cause serious consequences for the homeowners.
How Much Damage Can Squirrels Do to Your Attic?
Once squirrels enter your attic, they:
- Will continue gnawing at their surroundings, which can result in significant damage that will have to be either repaired or replaced.
- Have been known to spread both infectious diseases and parasites to other animals, which can infect humans indirectly.
- Fall into the spaces between the walls, thus resulting in an unpleasant fate for not both the squirrels and the humans who live in the home.
