Although squirrels are cute to look at from a distance, you don’t want to have one or more of them hanging around your property. If you know the signs that a squirrel has taken up residence on or in your home, you should immediately call a pest control service. Scheduling squirrel removal in Atlanta can help you avoid costly problems down the road.
Pay Attention to Unusual Sounds
If you hear scratching sounds or the clicking sounds of tiny paws, you could have any type of rodent problem. Softer sounds usually indicate mice or rats, but louder sounds could be coming from active adult squirrels. Either way, you don’t want one of these pests to breed in your home so call for help right away.
Damage to Your Home
Another obvious sign that you have a squirrel problem is the sudden appearance of damage in your home. You might see holes in your walls, wiring that has been chewed, or damage to your air vents. You might also find piles of wood chips or nesting materials in your attic insulation.
A Foul Odor is Present
You will also need to schedule squirrel removal in Atlanta if a squirrel has died in your home. A squirrel might find a way into your home’s walls and may not be able to get back out. In that case, they may ultimately die in your home, and you’ll recognize the unpleasant odor of a rodent’s decaying body. A professional will know how to locate and remove dead rodents.
