Wacky Pest Wednesday: Squirrels
Hey there Tri-County Pest Control fans, and welcome to our latest edition of Wacky Pest Wednesday! Today, we’re taking a look at a pest that you may be able to find in your attic this time of year: the squirrel.
Squirrels are interesting critters, as they come in all shapes and sizes. Normal, flying, and even prehistoric (Ice Age movie reference), there are squirrels all around. However, these free spirits can be quite a nuisance if they are holed up in your attic, as they are known to serve as a vector for disease.
Signs of a squirrel infestation include noise in the attic, gnaw damage, and droppings everywhere. These droppings should not be taken lightly, as they secrete many airborne particles that can cause health effects for family members, especially if they have asthma or other breathing problems. Should you notice any of these signs, a call to your local pest removal experts should fix the problem in no time.
