One of my favorite animals to deal with in the Houston Texas area will always be the squirrel. Squirrels are amazing creatures and can be fun to watch running back and forth in the park and in our back yards.
Below are the kind of squirrels that live in Texas:
- Mexican Ground Squirrel. Mexican ground squirrels live in burrows; they live in loose colonies, but are quite territorial. …
- Spotted Ground Squirrel. …
- Thirteen-Lined Ground Squirrel. …
- Rock Squirrel. …
- Eastern Gray Squirrel.
Although a squirrel in the yard is no need to be concerned, a squirrel living in the attic is! Squirrel is a rodent and like all rodents love to chew. If a squirrel chooses to chew on the electrical wiring in you attic this could cause an attic fire.
The grey squirrel is the usual culprit in house evasions and making homes in the chimney. I have watched a squirrel run across the electrical line to a house, run across the roof and jump straight down the chimney.
Squirrel removal in Houston is the best option. A trained squirrel control agent can humanely trap the culprit squirrel and remove the threat before damage can be made. A good wildlife removal company can give options such as squirrel exclusion, squirrel preventative measures and preventative maintenance or repair to prevent future occurrences .
Some pest control companies offer squirrel removal services and most are great at it. Never let your pest control use squirrel poison in or around your home. It can take some time for a poisoned squirrel to die and more often than not they end up dying in the attic under insulation, in the walls or even under the house.
If you find a squirrel running around in the house please do not try to pick it up, squirrels can deliver a nasty bite. If possible close all interior doors and open and exterior door to allow the squirrel to exit and call your local wildlife removal service to find out how the squirrel got in in the first place.
When a squirrel starts a family in your attic the wildlife expert may ask for a little time for the babies to grow big enough to trap humanly, this is to prevent them from dying in the wall or attic space and cause a big stink.
