In the winter, people want to limit their time outside in the cold and enjoy staying inside for warmth and comfort. Squirrels have these same desires and will usually do whatever they can to get inside of houses. Thanks to their clever nature and physical ability, they often succeed and can end up establishing themselves in your attic. ALCO Animal and Pest Control deals with many cases just like this every year and has the experience to provide effective squirrel removal in New Jersey.
A squirrel inside your home is a squirrel that will inevitably cause damage to your property or your family. One of their uses for your attic is to build a nest and turn only a few squirrels into a major problem very quickly. Since their teeth continue to grow, squirrels and other rodents have to chew on things to keep their teeth sharp and worn down. Some items they may choose to chew on include: wiring, support beams, drywall, insulation, and much more. This damage can be very costly and lead to further incidental damage if not handled through NJ squirrel removal.
If squirrels are already in your home, it is not safe to try anything on your own. There are DIY methods that exist for preventing squirrel nesting, but squirrel removal in New Jersey should really be left to professionals. Squirrels can be carrying diseases that are harmful to human health, one of which is rabies. A bite, scratch, or any other contact is enough to pass these illnesses on.
Although they may be cute and you might want them to be comfortable this winter, there is no place in the home for squirrels.
