One of the wonderful parts of being a Georgia homeowner is the gorgeous greenery that surrounds our lovely “City of Trees” in Atlanta, and the picturesque neighborhoods in the outer suburbs that it creates. Unfortunately, this lush growth of greenery and trees means that your family may have more animals for neighbors than people! Critter Busters based out of Acworth, Ga. wants you to know that one of these furry ‘neighbors’ maybe be the seemingly cute gray squirrel; one of the most recognizable kinds of wildlife found in Georgia. However, during the wintertime these cute friends can easily turn into foes as they move into your home, requiring some much-needed squirrel control.
These mammals are categorized as tree squirrels and range from about 12 ounces to one and a half pounds. It is likely you’ve seen these creatures hanging around in your neighborhood, in your local park, and maybe even running down the sidewalk near you. They generally keep to themselves unless you feed them or have bird feeders in your yard, but when winter comes they are tempted into the cozy spaces of your attic. Some signs of infestation are scratching or thumping noises coming from your attic space during the daytime.
- Shredding of insulation, ductwork, and electrical wiring in your attic.
- Foul odors from squirrel urine and (in unfortunate circumstances) squirrel death.
- Open holes or burrows into your home that other creatures such as bats, rats, or other pests can enter through.
- Although a minimal risk, squirrels can also carry diseases like rabies, tick fever, and more; never something you want in your home!
