How To Tell if There's a Squirrel in the House
The first indication of a squirrel problem is the time of day it occurs—and if it is indeed day, there's a good chance it's a squirrel. Most wildlife critters are nocturnal (raccoons, mice, bats), but not squirrels, for the most part.
How to Keep Squirrels Out
Squirrels are common sights in backyards and public parks throughout Athens, and — like many wild animals — squirrels aren't shy when it comes to getting in your house if they're looking for food or shelter. Tree squirrels and flying squirrels, common in Athens, have been known to enter attics to nest, and ground squirrels often burrow into yards or farmers' fields in search of food. Getting squirrels out is the easy part —it's keeping squirrels off your property and out of your home that can be prove difficult since the rodents can simply burrow underneath or climb over most fences. Tree squirrels and flying squirrels can be kept from entering attics by sealing all possible external entrances and pruning tree limbs that hang over roofs.
