Flying Squirrels Breed Once a Year
Flying squirrels have babies once in the Spring and the mother raises the young on her own. This is when squirrels are most likely going to try and make their way into your home.
Squirrel Damage Can Be Extensive
Unfortunately, if you have squirrels or trees near your Sevierville 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.
The entry holes of flying squirrels are often just the size of a quarter. They most often cause damage when they enter homes or buildings via construction gaps, gaps around siding, chimneys that are uncapped, via louver vents, fascia boards and soffits. After flying squirrels nest in your attic for a while, you can be sure that their population in your attic increases! This causes them to chew holes around the outside of your attic in an attempt to create easily accessibly entry points for their friends and family!
Flying squirrels have been known to chew and gnaw on wood, and also electrical wires in attics which can start fires.
Flying Squirrels cause damage by leaving droppings and urine stains on attic insulation. We CAN remove the soiled insulation and replace it, if needed.
Outside of your home, flying squirrels are known to chew on shrubs and bark on trees, raid bird feeders and gardens, and dig holes in turf.
Sometimes flying squirrels carry diseases like rabies which can be dangerous to your pets, along with ticks, mites and parasites.
Flying Squirrel Prevention
This is always important. Our wildlife team can teach you things to look for in your home that will help prevent future invasions. Among other things, we recommend installing chimney caps, trimming trees around your home and buildings on your property, and ridding your yard of all easily accessible food sources including bird feeders and pet bowls.
