Squirrel Invasion Alert: 5 Things You Have To Know

Most people refer to them as cute, harmless, a good candidate for a home pet and amusing little critters to watch. Those qualities are usually observed when the squirrels are in their natural habitat or environment. However, once they step foot into residential areas or anywhere close to those vicinities, it is a different story! Landscapes may be destroyed, desirable birds may be scared away and they may mess with your trash. Their once cute antics may quickly wear out on you and they are not amusing anymore. If you are currently experiencing their rampage, here is what you need to know about Squirrel invasion and what can be done to solve that problem.

Are they dangerous to humans?

There is always a possibility that these little animals carry some form of disease with them. Rabies is one of those illnesses that tag along, although it is considered to be extremely rare. If you are bitten by a Squirrel, flush the wound with clean water and then washed it again with a soap and water. It is recommended that you contact your local doctor immediately about the bite.

How does a squirrel invasion affect other animals in the affected area?

It is a common sight for Squirrels to invade bird feeders (if you have one). This tends to scare off the birds that you usually welcome and it may disturb your bird-watching routines. Other than attempting to steal the food from it, squirrels tend to gnaw on these feeders to create larger openings, making the Bird feeder useless to hold Bird feed.

The extent of property damage to one’s home

Squirrels like to nest. Homes and its related structures are their prime targets. If you have not installed any protective screens on your chimney or vent openings, squirrels might make their way through into your home’s structure and build their nests in these areas. Once settled down, the little critters will continue to chew or gnaw on your internal wiring or wood inside your home. Squirrels also pose a fire hazard as the chewing of wires have caused many a house fire.

Are there any home remedies?

If you are thinking of using pesticides to solve the Squirrel removal issue, stop! These substances may cause more harm to other wildlife or non-target animals, than just the squirrels alone. As a temporary measure, try using Squirrel repellents that are made available for homeowners on the internet. Try it out and see if it works. If it does not work, you might want to look to the next point.
