Squirrels can be very irritating – to say the least. You could be walking around your yard peacefully and then suddenly a squirrel will jump out of nowhere and startle you. This is a small annoyance compared to having nesting problems. There is nothing worse than discovering that squirrels are nesting in the attic of your home. In this article, we’re going to share a few helpful tips on how to prevent and get rid of squirrels from nesting within your home.
Here are a few ways to get rid of squirrels from invading your home.
Seal off all of the squirrels’ entrance ways up.
When you seal up squirrels entrance ways, it's like placing a flashing sign that reads: No Vacancies. However, you must know how to seal up their entrance ways because squirrels can easily enter a home in a variety of ways. For example, if you have small holes throughout your house, they can easily squeeze their little bodies in and out of your house.
Using plastic or paper is for the birds (no pun intended). You have to use something that's sturdy. Otherwise, they can easily pry their way back into your home with their little claws. Make sure you use the following items to seal up holes:
The items above are perfect to use when you want to cover up holes because animals can chew through them.
Hire a Tree Trimmer
What does hiring a tree trimmer have to do with getting rid of unwanted squirrels? For one thing, it will help cut off wild animal's access to your home. If you have long tree branches that hang at least 5 feet from your home, you’re going to want to have them trimmed down a little. Squirrels tend to use tree branches to jump onto rooftops of houses and other areas throughout a home. This will help prevent them from breaking into your home.
