Squirrels in the Attic

Did you know that squirrels in the attic are a common problem across Metro Vancouver? The Eastern Grey and black Squirrel (they were brought over from eastern Canada to Stanley Park) and is now the most common and largest squirrel in BC. The native Douglas Squirrel (which is the size of a chipmunk) is also common to BC. They will build nests in your house or attic, steal your food, and raise their babies! Squirrels can be infested with ticks, lice, and other parasites. Once they breach your home or garage, shed, or other structure on your property, they are tricky to remove. This is especially true if they’re having babies, which a majority of them will do twice consecutively a year, during late winter to early spring (February to June) and mid-summer to mid-fall (end of July to mid-October). That’s why you need professional squirrel removal from Summit Wildlife Solutions.

 

Squirrel Problems

Though these tree dwellers look may cute, squirrels in the attic can be a major hassle and source of great inconvenience. They’re very territorial yet very comfortable around humans and can quickly get established in your home. Squirrels can have up to two litters a year and adjust their diet to eat whatever is available, all the while spreading disease throughout your home. These creatures can not only live in your attic but can invade your crawlspace, chimney, and duct work, causing structural damage. They’ll even chew through your electrical wires. Getting them out as quickly as possible and keeping them out permanently is what we do!
