Do You Have Squirrels in Your House?

They may look cute at the park and may be the pride of many Montreal neighborhoods, however, finding squirrels in your attic or garage is not as charming!

Squirrels can cause significant damage to properties and may carry serious diseases and harmful parasites.

Why do they enter a house?

Squirrels are known to run around freely in urban settings and are not likely to be problematic. However, when a squirrel population in a specific territory becomes too large, squirrels will start to get noticed, causing harm to human properties and even invading homes.

If you notice squirrels are getting closer to your home, running along the wires connected to your home, travelling on your roof or gutters, using your planters and flower pots to store their food, it might be a sign that they are running out of space in trees and areas away from humans. Another important sign of a squirrel overpopulation is seeing squirrels fighting.

Signs of an overpopulation may increase the chances that squirrels will attempt to enter your home. For this reason, it is important to inspect the outside of your property, checking for any possible entry points.

Signs of a Squirrel Infestation

If squirrels have made their way into your home, you will most likely begin to hear unusual noises coming from your attic or walls. You may also notice the damage caused outdoor or indoor materials, such as siding, wires, pipes and insulation.

If a foul smell is suddenly present in your home, your infestation problem has become extremely serious. This means that the amount of squirrel urine and feces have become considerable and, therefore, hazardous to the health of the dwelling’s residents or pets.

How to prevent a squirrel infestation?

  • Look for and repair any kind opening or damage to your roof, siding or soffit
  • Screen-off vents around your home
  • Install a chimney cap
  • Trim tree branches that are closer than 8 to ten feet away from your roof
  • Remove bird feeders or pet food from the outside of your property, as they may attract squirrels
