While squirrels present themselves as cute and pleasant critters, they can be an absolute terror if they get into your property. Due to their destructive gnawing and nesting habits, squirrels can cause severe property damage and spread disease and contamination in the process.
How Squirrels Infest Salem Properties
Your Salem property may be more vulnerable to wildlife infestations than you think.
Squirrels regularly use roofs and gutters to access homes. These areas can develop holes over time that, if not sealed, can be penetrated and chewed through by squirrels and other pests and used to enter and infest your attic. Keep in mind, rodents like squirrels, rats, and mice can squeeze their way through even the smallest of holes, so perform an exterior inspection of your home to look for any gaps or holes. If you discover exposures in your property, it is vital that you patch them as soon as possible to prevent an infestation.
Squirrels can also get onto your rooftop by scaling tree limbs that hang over your home. A good way to prevent a squirrel invasion is to trim back any nearby vegetation that is providing pests a bridge to your property.
