Squirrels are a common nuisance for Atlanta residents. They are destructive little creatures and can do a lot of damage if they get into your attic or basement. If you think there’s a squirrel in your home, it’s important to act fast. The longer you take to get these animals out, the worse your problem will become. Attic Kings Animal Removal has the best squirrel removal Atlanta has to offer. We’ll get rid of your squirrel problem fast so you can get back to enjoying your home.
Having Squirrels in Your Home
Once squirrels have entered your home, they’ll most likely make their way up to the attic. Insulation provides them with good nesting material and warmth. However, it’s not uncommon for them to go to the basement, inside the walls, vents, or chimney.
Female squirrels can have 3 to 5 babies at a time, so if there are multiple females in your home, you can see how bad your squirrel problem could get.
Damage Caused by Squirrels
The amount of damage a family of squirrels can do to a home is astonishing. They can chew holes in just about any material. They’ll chew up wires, making them a serious fire hazard. They leave urine and feces everywhere they go. Squirrels will also drive you crazy with their incessant scratching, especially in the early morning.
Squirrels also carry diseases and are prime hosts for parasites such as fleas and ticks. They can also agitate allergies if you have them, which can be a serious health concern.
What if a Squirrel Dies in My Home?
Having a dead squirrel in your home brings on another list of problems. Not only will a dead animal smell up your house, it could also attract scavengers.
If you do find a dead squirrel or any other animal in your home, be very careful about handling it. It’s best to call a dead animal removal specialist, like the ones at Attic Kings, to take care of the situation. We know how to properly remove the animal and decontaminate the area to stop the spread of germs and bacteria.
Our Atlanta Squirrel Removal Process
- Inspect the area. The first thing we do is find exactly where the squirrels are living. This allows us to come up with the best strategy for removing them.
- Install tunnels. Attic Kings uses one-way exit tunnels for our squirrel removal process. These tunnels allow the animals to leave the area but prevent them from getting back in. We usually install them where the squirrels already come and go.
- Install animal proofing. Once all the squirrels have left, we’ll animal proof the entire area. This will keep them from re-entering your home.
- Area decontamination. After your home has been animal proofed, it’s important that we decontaminate the infested area. This may require replacing the insulation or other materials. It all depends on where the squirrels were nesting.
Our Warranty Program
All of our animal removal jobs come with a 1-year, renewable warranty. This means that if the animals do gain re-entry, we’ll come back and fix the problem for free!
Attic Kings does not use poisons as part of its removal process. Using poisons can pose a danger to your pets and family and aren’t as effective as our exit tunnels. As much of a nuisance as these critters can be, we feel that killing them is not the answer.
