Squirrels are cute when playing in the yard. But if they live in your house, they can be a problem. They like to climb and jump a lot. As cities grow, squirrels lose their homes. So, they start living in our homes to stay warm and safe.

Many don’t know that squirrels are like rats. They have four big teeth that keep growing. They use these teeth to eat hard nuts and acorns. These teeth also let them chew through house walls. Even if they are cuter than rats, they can damage our homes.

How Do Squirrels Enter Attics?

Squirrels love climbing trees. From up high, they can see our house roofs. They like warm places in the winter. So, they try to enter our attics. They use their teeth to get in through small holes or vents. They often jump from tree branches or wires to reach the roof. This is bad for our homes and can also be a health risk.

To enter, a squirrel needs a hole just 1.5 inches wide. They often enter through:

  • Soffits: These cover the bottom part of the roof edge. They make our roof look nice and keep it dry. If not set right, squirrels find a way in.
  • Fascia Boards: Thin boards that run along the roof’s outer edge. They stop water from entering.
  • Ridge Vents: Vents on the roof’s top. They let out warm air. Squirrels like this warm air.
  • Gable Vents: Vents at the roof’s peak. They let air in to cool the attic.
  • Roof Returns: Where the roof ends and the house wall starts.
  • Chimneys: Tubes that let smoke out from a fireplace. Some go through the attic.
  • Siding Corners: Trim that holds the siding at corners.
  • Gutters: Channels that move rain away. If blocked, they can rot, letting squirrels in.
  • Plumbing Mats: Rubber covers on roof vents. They let out gasses from plumbing.

Remember, always check these spots to keep squirrels out of your home!


Squirrel Nests in Walls and Crawl Spaces

We often find squirrels in attics, but don’t forget, they also love wall vents and crawl spaces.

Wall Vents – Vents on house sides are used for kitchens, bathrooms, and dryers. Squirrels think they’re like tree holes and love to nest there. Crawlspaces – This is a small space under the first floor. It’s used to reach house systems like wires without digging. Not all houses have one.

How to Stop Squirrels

The best defense is keeping your home in good shape. Check your attic in the day. If you see sunlight from any gaps, seal them. Put covers or mesh on chimneys and vents. Also, cut tree branches that are too close to the roof.

If a squirrel moves in, get help from one of our wildlife experts. Squirrels can get upset if they feel threatened, especially if they have babies. They can also bring diseases. Our pros know the best way to handle squirrels.
