How to Identify Squirrels
You can’t live in the Mid-Atlantic and not know what a squirrel looks like! Small heads, grey bushy tails that are almost always twitching, and their constant scurrying and darting about. They are actually very vocal creatures and the communicate with each other in several ways including barking, chattering, screaming, and purring. They also communicate through body language including moving their tails and stomping their feet. Cute, but when you have them in your home or business, you need squirrel treatments to get them out.
They are pretty cute to most but keep in mind they are rodents with fluffy tails. Squirrels can bring harmful parasites with them into your home’s or business’s attic including ticks, which can transmit Lyme disease, and fleas, which can be difficult to get rid of. Accumulated squirrel feces and urine can also contain salmonellosis. Accidental exposure can cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and chills. They can make a total mess of your insulation which can also cost you money on your energy bills! Whether you’re a business owner or a homeowner, nobody wants to pay more on their energy bill than they already are. Squirrel treatments should include exclusion work so that once the squirrel control is done on the ones that are already there, more don’t just come back.Not the squirrel you have?
