What do squirrels do?
We get it, squirrels can look cute. But, there’s a reason that your dog is barking at them! They move really fast, and sure, they’re entertaining to a dog. However, your dog’s job is to protect your home. So, when your dog sees a squirrel, think of them protecting your home. Look, we love dogs. We wish our dogs could be the one thing that gets rid of squirrels. Unfortunately, they aren’t.
You may think that squirrels are annoying, but let’s dig into why they are much more than annoying and bordering on very harmful. First of all, squirrels like to eat. They see your home and garden and think it’s an all-you-can-eat buffet. They’ll start with your plants. You know those gorgeous plants you’ve been tending to? Consider them the filet mignon for squirrels. A squirrel has no issue with eating all of your beautiful plants and flowers in your garden.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t stop there. When you have just one squirrel, it’s just a few plants. Still, squirrels like other squirrels. Soon enough, they’ll have babies, and then you have a squirrel hotel happening right in your backyard. Not only will they hit your plants and flowers, but say goodbye to seeds, fruits, vegetables, or anything else you’ve got in your yard.
Squirrel removal from your attic
Once they’ve made their way through your plants, they need to find a place to rest. Say hello to the squirrel nest. Didn’t know squirrels nest? Well, that’s because you probably haven’t seen their nest before. Do you know where their favorite place to nest is? Your attic!
Squirrels see your house as a fun challenge. They know that if they can get in there, they are practically staying at the finest hotel. Fortunately for them, and unfortunately for us, squirrels have large teeth. They have no problem chewing through parts of your home. That includes your shingles, so if you didn’t have a hole before, they will gladly make one. Squirrels can chew through the shingles to gain access to the attic.
To make things even worse, they don’t have the best memory. Squirrels will make multiple entry points into the attic, causing structural damage to your roof. These holes also open up your attic to other rodents and pests, making it the perfect place for all animals to relax and rejuvenate.
Once they get in your home, your attic insulation will be used as a nesting site. They pull at it and form it into their nest until it’s to their liking. Many squirrels often use insulation as their personal bathroom as well. Squirrel urine and feces damage your insulation so that it can no longer be used properly. If left long enough for squirrels to get into the attic, you’ll need to replace most of the insulation, which can be a costly project!
Squirrels can even chew through your air conditioning ductwork. This can damage structural work as well if not handled quickly. However, perhaps the most damaging and life-threatening thing that squirrels can do is chew through wires. In your attic, there are a lot of wires. These electrical wires can spark and cause a house fire if squirrels chew through them. Unfortunately, this happens much more often than we think. To prevent a house fire, you need to keep a good eye on your attic and look for the signs of an infestation.
Signs of a squirrel infestation
The good news is that squirrels are not the most common rodent you’ll find in your attic. Unfortunately, if a squirrel is in your attic, that means the population outside is pretty severe and most likely an infestation. There are a few things you can look for when monitoring the squirrels to see whether or not you have an infestation.
As we talked about earlier, one of the first signs will be plants missing from the garden. They’ll start snacking on this before moving up to the harder stuff. Another sign of an infestation could be fighting squirrels. As it turns out, squirrels are pretty territorial. Once they find a place they like, it’s theirs. So, if squirrels are fighting, you can assume they are fighting over prime real estate—AKA, your attic.
One interesting thing that can help alert you as to whether the squirrels are in your attic is noise. With rodents, you will often hear a scratching noise. However, most rodents, like rats, are only awake at night. With squirrels, you’ll hear this scratching noise during the day, which is how you will know if you’re dealing with squirrels or something else.
If you’re brave enough to look in your attic, this can tell you whether or not you have an infestation. For one, you will probably see their nests. This will be pulled out insulation and may be formed in corners or any other dark areas. If you don’t see their nests, your nose might alert you to their presence. Over time, squirrels urinate and defecate in your attic. As you can imagine, it leaves a less-than-pleasant smell lingering behind. It can get so bad that you may smell it even outside of the attic.
With a tall ladder (or even your kid’s drone) you can check the roof and see if there are any points of entry. The holes squirrels chew are pretty large, so they should be able to see fairly easy. You can expect to see holes four to five inches in diameter.
Here’s a quick summary of the signs there may be a squirrel infestation in your home:
- Plants missing from gardens
- Fighting squirrels outdoors
- Strange noises in the attic
- Sounds occurring during the day, not the night
- Nests in attic
- Foul smell in or near attic
- Entry points on the roof
“We’ve used other services previously that did not even compare to vinx pest control. They showed up right when they said they would and were thorough with the entire process. We’ve had a problem with spiders and ants and haven’t seen any since they came and sprayed. I would definitely recommend this service.”

Some people will try to do pest removal squirrels like it’s an easy fix. However, using rodent poison on squirrels is not an option. Not only is it dangerous when not done by a licensed professional, but there’s a reason that squirrels are removed rather than poisoned. The last thing you want is for a squirrel to die in your home, leaving behind a smell that may be impossible to trace. Rodents can often die within your walls, causing more damage as you have to open the walls up and get their carcass out.
