Several animals find their way into our homes, but one of the most obvious signs you have a squirrel in your home is if you hear strange or unexpected noises in your attic, walls, under the floors or in your chimney early in the morning and in the evening. This is when squirrels are most active. Many animals are nocturnal, so you only hear them at night. Often, you’ll hear a ‘scratching’ noise or very quick scurrying around. Rats can also be active during the day.
Squirrels find their way into homes in search for a secluded, safe and quiet place to give birth. What should you do? We recommend that you act proactively and call our wildlife removal specialists to remove the squirrel before it has babies or causes major damage to your electrical wiring, which can become a fire hazard.
Professional wildlife trappers will inspect your home for entry points, set up traps, look for babies, clean and sanitize the area, seal the entry and discuss squirrel prevention in the Oak Ridge, TN area. We’ll also take the squirrels to a safer environment.

Usual Squirrel Removal Tasks in Oak Ridge:
Squirrels teeth never stop growing. So, to combat that, they need to chew. They chew electrical wires, create insulation damage, and contaminate your attic and home with their feces and urine.
Unfortunately, if you have squirrels or trees near your Oak Ridge, TN area home, squirrel chewing on your home can be a problem. Squirrels don’t need much room to enter and will chew almost anything they come in contact with. Squirrels also leave a lot of waste in your insulation that can easily get you sick as well as cause damage to dry wall.
Squirrels leave urine and feces in attics, and carry parasites, making them carriers for the diseases that fleas, ticks, and more can transmit and spread. They leave lots of droppings, which can expose you to health risks such as leptospirosis or salmonella.
