Squirrel removal Harrisburg
Damage from squirrels is extremely common in Harrisburg and surrounding areas. Their damages to your home and property can be extreme. For squirrel removal, we always use traps and methods approved by the PA Game Commission for indoor and outdoor issues. After we remove the squirrels, we repair your home and use preventative methods to ensure the squirrels don’t return.
What do they do?
As cooler weather approaches, they begin searching for warmer areas to nest. Unfortunately, these warmer places are often in homes because they provide a shield from the elements. Squirrels are skilled climbers that investigate homes from top to bottom, searching for weak spots. If your home isn’t fully sealed, they will end up in your home!
Squirrels usually enter through unprotected vents and chimneys. Moreover, most vents with built-in screens fail to protect your home as squirrels can easily chew through them. With uncapped chimneys, a faulty damper could allow a squirrel to end up in your living room!
They also chew through a variety of materials including wood, vinyl, and aluminum. A small gap will quickly turn into their front door!
What damage do they cause?
The longer squirrels have access to your home, the more damage they cause. They nest in insulation to stay warm. During nesting, they move the insulation around, flatten it out, and destroy the “R” value.
Furthermore, their damage extends to wiring. They chew on the electrical wires, which creates a large fire hazard! In some homes, they will chew through walls and ceilings to enter the living spaces.
During our experience with squirrel removal, we have seen severe and expensive damage to windows and door trims. This is usually caused by trapped squirrels that found their way in, but couldn’t find their way out.
