It’s Time for Squirrel Breeding…Unfortunately
18 May 2017 Creature Catcher's 0
Now that we are deep into spring, our moods have shifted and we are ready to explore the outdoors. From the sun shining to greener grass to rose bushes blooming, there’s no better feeling than the transition between winter and spring. Unfortunately, squirrel breeding season begins at the end of April into the fall and during this time, mothers are having babies that are blind and deaf, leaving them essentially helpless. This means that squirrels are looking for a safe place to keep their young.
Homeowners must be on the lookout for wildlife intrusion because if you have a cozy, safe attic, squirrels might turn to this for their new home.
Inspect Your Home Thoroughly
You must start inspecting your home for baby squirrels now that they are already born. Try to block entry points and look for chewed wires, wood chips on the floor, signs of a nest, droppings, and footprints. If you do find babies in the home, you need to reunite them with their family. Call Creature Catchers for expert wildlife removal services.
Move Your Bird Feeder
Bird feeders that are hung too close to the home can pose a serious issue for homeowners. When it’s hung too close to the home, it can be a regular food source for squirrels. They’ll also move into the home to find shelter. Moving your bird feeder away from the home will prevent this from occurring.
Get a Home Inspection
Since squirrels aren’t here, they can easily access small holes in the home. They are great chewers, often chewing through wires and gnawing on wood. Because of this, it’s really difficult to determine if every hole and crack has been sealed successfully. You should contact a team of technicians to patch up holes and have a home inspector provide you with a thorough inspection.
