The Gray Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) in Short Pump, VA often causes problems when it decides to take up residence inside of your attic. Once in your attic they can be extremely destructive – tearing up and soiling insulation, gnawing on wires and structural materials, and generally making a lot of disruptive noises.

Squirrels are diurnal, meaning they are active twice a day, generally in the morning and evening. They mate two to three times a year and have litters of 3-5 young per litter.

Description of Short Pump Squirrel Damage

 

Short Pump VA squirrels may occasionally damage forest trees by chewing bark from branches and trunks. Pine squirrels damage Ponderosa pine, jack pine, and paper birch. In the Southeast, fox squirrels damage loblolly and other pines.

These species and others may eat cones and nip twigs to the extent that they interfere with natural reseeding of important forest trees. This is a particular problem in Ponderosa pine forests where pine squirrels may remove 60% to 80% of the cones in poor to fair seed years. In forest seed orchards, such squirrel damage interferes with commercial seed production.

In nut orchards, squirrels can severely curtail production by eating nuts prematurely and by carrying off mature nuts. In New England fruit orchards, pine squirrels may eat ovaries of cherry blossoms and destroy ripe pears. Pine, gray, and fox squirrels may chew bark of various orchard trees.

In residential areas of Short Pump, squirrels sometimes travel powerlines and short out transformers. They gnaw on wires, enter buildings, and build nests in attics. Squirrels may damage siding, insulation, or household contents when they take up residence in homes or other buildings.They frequently chew holes through pipelines used in maple syrup production.

Squirrels in Short Pump occasionally damage lawns by burying or searching for and digging up nuts. They will chew bark and clip twigs on ornamental trees or shrubbery planted in yards. Often squirrels take food at feeders intended for birds. Sometimes they chew to enlarge openings of bird houses and then enter to eat nestling songbirds. Flying squirrels are small enough to enter most bird houses and are especially likely to eat nesting birds.

In gardens, squirrels may eat planted seeds, mature fruits, or grains such as corn. (Source: Prevention and Control of Wildlife Damage, 1994)

 

Squirrel Health Concerns In Short Pump

 

Gray squirrels in Short Pump are also subject to a host of parasites and diseases. Botfly larvae can cause enormous cysts on a squirrel before the larva emerges to pupate and metamorphose into a fly. Mange can leave squirrels with patches of raw furless skin. Ticks, fleas, lice, and worms also afflict gray squirrels. Another peculiar ailment that is found in gray squirrels is squirrel pox or fibromatosis. This disease is caused by a virus and results in multiple large skin tumors which may appear anywhere on the squirrel´s body. Normally, this disease will run its course and the tumors will disappear unless secondary skin infections occur. If the tumors occur around the eyes or mouth, the squirrel may be unable to see or feed and may succumb due to starvation. Squirrel droppings, like pretty much any wildlife dropping, are associated with Leptospirosis and Salmonella. (Source: www.newyorkwild.org)
