    Don't Let Squirrels Nest in Your Orlando Home—Remove Them

    Squirrels can inhabit a home anytime in Orlando, Florida, most frequently when they’re nesting and reproducing. Peak breeding seasons are late winter and late summer. If you notice scurrying sounds in your ceilings around sunrise and sunset and sometimes during the day, you may have a squirrel in your home. When they’re nesting and reproducing is when they cause the most damage. They tend to chew through everything, even roof shingles, to find a burrow where they can have their kittens (baby squirrels).

    Squirrels’ teeth continue to grow year-round which leads them to chew on things to keep their teeth filed down. This chewing in your home can result in damaged electrical wires that are a fire hazard, holes in ductwork that keep your air conditioning and heat from being effective and damaged wooden beams that support your house.

    If you think you have a squirrel in your home, call Omega Animal Removal and a Wildlife Specialist will come to your house to perform a thorough inspection and to find out if there is a nest of kittens in your attic. Our experts have found that mother squirrels will stop at nothing to get back to her kittens and have been known to chew through shingles and wood decking to get back inside.

    You may think squirrels are fun to watch outside, but they can cause untoward damage when they get inside your home. They can even cause damage to the exterior of your home. If you look up at your fascia boards, soffits and vents on your home’s exterior, you might see places where squirrels have chewed a hole for entry into your home.

    How Omega Animal Removal Can Help With Squirrel Control

    Our Squirrel Specialist will walk around the outside of your home and inspect from the ground level up to see if there is any indication of where a squirrel got in. This includes inspecting your foundation and also getting up on the roof to examine your entire roofline, soffits and fascia for any possible entry points. As you can imagine, the most likely point of entry for a squirrel will be somewhere on the roof, so we take particular care to inspect every aspect of your roof.

    Once our Squirrel Specialist has inspected the entire outside and identified where the squirrels appear to be getting inside, he will then check your attic and examine all of your wiring, ductwork and wooden beams for any damage. He will look specifically for evidence of nesting, urine and feces contamination and chewing to determine how severe the damage is that the squirrel infestation has caused.

    After the physical inspections are complete, our Squirrel Specialist will review all of his findings with you and will work with you to determine the best treatment plan. We usually recommend a four-pronged attack:

    1. Evaluation
    2. Trap and remove squirrels
    3. Perform full home exclusion, sealing all entry points to the home
    4. Decontaminate the attic and sanitize the entire premises
