Squirrel Problems in Facilities

Squirrels and the Damage They Cause

You may think the squirrels scurrying around the outdoor areas of your facility are harmless, but the truth is they can cause extensive damage to a structure in a surprisingly efficient and determined way.

From Your Commercial Pest Control Specialist: “Squirrels will chew both randomly and with a purpose.” – Jennifer Brumfield, Entomologist B.C.E.

Squirrel Calling Cards

  • Noises: Once squirrels get into the structure, you will most likely hear them scurrying through the walls.
  • Other Pests: Squirrels have a tendency to bring other pests in with them, specifically carpet beetles. Signs of carpet beetles could mean signs of squirrels, so keep an eye out.
  • Gaps: Squirrels have the ability to chew gaps and holes through the structures of buildings, and this can allow other pests to creep in as well.

If your business is experiencing any of the above mentioned signs, you should contact a pest control professional immediately. Squirrels create opportunities for other pests to make themselves comfortable inside the walls of your business. Remain proactive about your pest control and ensure that your business continues running smoothly and pest-free.
