Squirrel Removal Tips: Common Points of Entry for Squirrels
Squirrels are tenacious when it comes to finding a safe and warm place to nest. That’s why it’s essential for you to be comprehensive when making sure any access points are covered. Today we’ll go over some of the most common ways that squirrels can get into your home. If you’re unsuccessful and squirrels get in, you can always contact the squirrel removal experts at Animal Remover to take care of the problem.
Your roof is by far the most common place for squirrels to sneak into. With plenty of small and forgotten areas to choose from, squirrels don’t have a problem getting in. Here are some of the ways that squirrels get in through the roof.
Chimneys are an extremely easy way for squirrels to get into your home. It’s essential to get a chimney cap to prevent this from happening. Animal Remover offers squirrel removal and chimney cap services, so you can always contact us if your chimney hasn’t had this added.
Roof and Gable Vents
Vents on your roof are an easy way for squirrels to get in. You definitely need to install vent covers to minimize the chance of this happening. The problem is that certain vent covers are easy for squirrels to chew through. You should make sure your vent covers are strong enough to prevent squirrels from getting in.
Not only will gutters give squirrels an easy way to climb up your roof, it also gives them easy access to the edge of your roof. Shingles are usually tough enough to prevent squirrels from chewing through, but the edge of your roof is more vulnerable. They can simply stand on the gutters and chew through.
Soffits, or where parts of your roof intersect, are also easy access points for squirrels. Make sure these are sealed up so squirrels can’t get in.

Crawl spaces are also fairly easy for squirrels to get into. They are also areas that are difficult to get squirrels out of. If one gets in, you’ll definitely need a squirrel removal service. Make sure there aren’t any easy access points around your crawl spaces so this doesn’t become an issue.
