For months you’ve been hearing scratching and scurrying noises in your attic, but you thought it would go away. Recently, you’ve been hearing a lot more of it and finally worked up the courage to get the ladder and get a look at the attic yourself.
It didn’t take long for you to spot them: a full family of baby squirrels, nestled into the far corner of your attic. A nearby hole in the siding was clearly visible and a great indicator as to how the mother squirrel managed to find her way inside. But now what do you do?\
Here are some tips from our squirrel removal technicians.
- Do not touch them.
Although it may be tempting to pick them up, hold them or pet them, baby squirrels are not pets. Squirrels carry fleas, ticks and parasites, which can be extremely dangerous to humans. They may also bite or scratch, which can lead to further complications and infections.
