In their rightful habitat, scampering around in local woodland, they are a joyous sight but, when they make their way into our homes and commercial premises, they are noisy, destructive and smelly.
Squirrels are part of the rodent family hence, they chew to keep their teeth worn down. This means they will chew and gnaw at almost anything – plastic, pipes, vents, wires, wood and much, much more.
All of us – humans and animals – want somewhere war, dry and safe to raise our young, even better is when there is an ample food supply in close proximity too. And, squirrels, like many other animals are opportunists; if they see a chance to make their nest in the roof space of a building, they take it.
Our homes, especially our gardens, can be the initial aspect that attracts them – the bird feeders, the trees and any food for pets that s left outside. A nice warm building simply tops of this choice with squirrels moving in, to raise their young.
As a result, squirrels inevitably make their way to our attics or the large loft space.
Squirrels can make their nests in buildings any time of the year, especially is they can find a way in but they make their nests in late winter/early spring ready for their breeding and nesting ‘season’.
