Squirrel removal in Springfield almost sounds like a do-it-yourself kind of novel or article. This is anything but that. Squirrel removal is a lot more complicated than many people think, and it shouldn't be attempted on your own for various reasons. Let's take a look at these cute but destructive creatures, the issues that they can bring to your home, the best way to get them out of your home, and how to keep them out.

They are so cute!

Squirrels most surely are an attractive and furry little rodent. Yes, you read that right; they are a rodent. They may not look a whole lot like their 'cousins' the mouse or rat, but they are in the same 'family' none the less. And just like mice and rats, these 'cute' and furry rodents can cause destruction to your home and bring along with them some pests of their own. They have an incessant need to chew to keep their front incisor teeth at a manageable length, and they aren't picky about what they choose for a chew toy. They often pick wood inside and outside your home, electrical wires, drywall, or even plumbing! If they have discovered that they can easily get in and out of your attic, then they will also make a nest up there and get comfy because they have no respect for personal space. The fleas, mites, and ticks that may be on them are going to get comfy too. Now not only do you have squirrels, but you also have fleas, mites, and ticks.

Not only do they have no respect for personal space, but they also have no respect for any storage items that you may have stored in your attic. Christmas lights make great chew toys and those baby clothes that you are saving for you first grand baby are great for a foundation for their nest!
