Your Pest Control Solution
​A squirrel living in an attic from February to October should ALWAYS be assumed to be a mother with babies. Squirrels have babies twice a year, in the early spring and the late summer.

Squirrels typically give birth to litters of one to six young. 

When squirrel infestations are present, homeowners will hear scratching and squeaking noises during the day. The presence of droppings, chew marks, and materials gathered for nests also point to squirrel problems. 

Entry points are through roof vents, dryer vents, stove vents, chimney's and the soffit/fascia along the roof line. 

In order to gain access entry points are usually chewed through unless an existing hole was present.
