Problem with squirrels near your home or business?

Squirrels seek warmth in the fall and can infiltrate through the roofs, chimneys or ventilation dampers of your home or business, shed or garage. They will make a cozy nest in an inaccessible place and raise their babies there.

They will chip away at wood, punch holes in walls and ceilings, move insulation, and chip away at electrical wires to find their way, all of which can create a fire hazard.

Squirrels can carry diseases and parasites, and even the rabies virus. Their feces and urine can contaminate your home or business, and can be the source of health problems for your loved ones.
