Did you know if you live in Connecticut the likelihood you’ve had a squirrel in your home is pretty high? According to DEEP, most homeowners in the state have made complaints about grey squirrels that have entered their home and are unwanted. The issue is further compounded by the fact that these squirrels are very hyper and can easily cause a lot of damage when they feel trapped inside a space.
The goal is to not only remove them quickly and safely, but to stop them from entering ever again. Here are some important things to consider when it comes to nuisance squirrels in Connecticut.
How Do You Know if You Have a Squirrel in Your Home?
The tell-tale signs of squirrels invading your space are gnawing, scratching, and pattering sounds – especially when this happens in the early morning hours. Other visual signs included balls of torn insulation and dried leaves formed into a nest. In your home this can cause severe damage to your attic, insulation and even electrical wiring so be sure to spot the signs early on.
How to Keep Squirrels Out of Your Home
Once you’ve located and had the squirrels removed humanely, you’ll need to also stop them from re-entering again. Make sure you patch up and block any visible holes using things like wire mesh or replacing siding and sheetrock. You can prevent their access by also trimming back branches and vines leaning against your dwelling.
