While beloved by many as cute and harmless members of the animal kingdom, squirrels can actually cause a significant amount of damage to your home or business property. Squirrels are considered to be pests because they are good at finding discreet ways into commercial and residential buildings, and once inside, they are likely to chew through important infrastructure. Squirrels also have sharp teeth and claws that they can use to harm and potentially transmit dangerous diseases to you or your family if they feel threatened.
Because of such risks, it is important to call Critter Control® of Boxford immediately for safe and efficient squirrel removal services if the pests manage to infiltrate your Boxford, Massachusetts residence or office.
4 Common Squirrel Entry Points Into Your Boxford Property
Many who have never experienced an infestation may wonder how squirrels got inside their property in the first place. While our homes and businesses may seem secure, small creatures like squirrels are instinctively adept at fitting through small cracks in exterior walls or burrowing holes underground in order to gain entry into properties. Here are some of the areas of your property that are especially vulnerable to squirrel infestations.
- Plastic roof vents
- Roof and soffit intersections
- Rubber plumbing mats
- Uncapped chimneys
