Why do you need a professional to remove the squirrels in your home? The main reasons are professionals know how to get the squirrels out humanely and how to seal existing and potential re-entry sites. Chris Heath, with Heath’s Wildlife Service, not only knows animals and how to remove them, but he also knows construction. This experience with construction means he knows what to look for when closing off potential re-entry sites.

What are some problems caused by squirrels in your home? They can:

  • chew large holes in your eaves, soffitts, facia, and siding
  • chew insulation off wires, leading to fire hazards
  • leave urine and feces in your home’s insulation
  • cause urine stains on your ceilings
  • damage, shred, and nest in your insulation causing foul odors


These problems and others, including spreading some viruses that are harmful to humans, can lead to hundreds or thousands of dollars in damages. So if you know, or even think, you have squirrels living in your home, don’t wait. Call Heath’s Wildlife Service right away to get your free estimate on removal.

Chewing may be the most destructive issue with squirrels in your home. Since they are rodents, their front teeth grow continually. This means they have to chew regularly to keep them worn down. Outdoors, they chew on limbs, plants, and nuts. Indoors, in your house, they chew on anything they can find. Most of what they find can wind up being expensive when they finish chewing on it.

There may be times during the day when you don’t hear any indication of the squirrels in your home. Gray Squirrels and Red Squirrels usually keep schedules similar to humans. That is, they are most active and noticeable in your home early in the morning and again in the evening. Between these times, they typically leave your home and search for food. Flying squirrels are nocturnal, so they make the most noise while you are trying to sleep.

Squirrels will come into homes typically for safety reasons and to have their young. With two litters per year of anywhere from one to eight pups, you can have a fairly large population of squirrels around your home in a short time.

Another really good reason not to wait to call Heath’s Wildlife Service right away.
