Flying squirrels may not live up to their names, but they certainly can cause a lot of trouble. This species of squirrel does not literally fly, as bats and birds would, but rather, flying squirrels glide between trees.

You may find yourself needing squirrel removal in Jersey City if flying squirrels are inhabiting any one of these spaces. Flying squirrels are smaller than regular squirrels, and they typically enter attics through small holes. They choose attics because of the insulation that can be found in those areas.
Flying squirrels are a nocturnal species, but there are certainly signs to look for when trying to determine whether or not you have a flying squirrel problem:
- Are you seeing a surplus of acorn or hickory nut shells around the yard? Check them to see what the openings look like. If the openings are circular or ovular, flying squirrels may be the culprit.
- Inspect any larger nuts you may find in your yard. These nuts will have two openings in them or the entire end will be removed.
- Have you found small droppings or urine spots on the ground? These remains can be left by plenty of animals, but if you are finding acorns and hickory nuts in your yard, the probability is more likely that it is from flying squirrels.
- Check for any damage to the structure of your home, wiring or plants. Flying squirrels tend to leave behind damage and will gnaw on plant life, wires and wood.
If you find any of these signs in your home or yard, you should call Alco Animal and Pest Control for squirrel removal in Jersey City. Squirrels are looking to stay out of the cold this winter, and attic spaces are a perfect place for them to stay warm.
