Squirrel Food

The four front teeth on these rodents never stop growing, which is why they can chew on acorns, nuts, and seeds throughout their lives. When squirrels bury nuts but can’t find them later, a tree starts to grow. This is one way squirrels help the environment by becoming natural tree planters! Squirrels don’t just eat nuts. They might also chew on tree bark, eggs, and even hapless baby birds or insects if food is scarce. A squirrel removal company can identify food sources on your property to try to prevent squirrel invasions. 


Baby squirrels are about one inch long at birth. They open their eyes at four weeks old and are ready to head out on their own after 10 weeks. Mama squirrels usually have four pups in each litter, and they’re entirely dependent on the mother until 10 weeks. If you discover a nest of baby squirrels in your attic, it’s time for humane squirrel removal from Animal Remover.
