    Your Houston Home Shouldn't Have Squirrels in It

    Squirrels are fairly common throughout North America, and are generally not seen as pests until they have entered residential homes at which point these cute furry animals become their true selves: destructive wild animals that chew through wires and wood, urinate and defecate all over your attic insulation and squabble loudly throughout the late night hours. Like all rodents, their superior gnawing skills are the source of the most acute destruction, sometimes starting electrical fires by chewing through wiring in your home.

    As urban areas grow and the number of trees for their habitat continue to decrease, squirrels begin to enter attics and existing structures to nest. This is highly problematic as squirrels are very territorial and nearly impossible to keep out once they have made your home their home. It is essential that you enlist Omega Animal Removal’s professional services once you suspect a possible infestation. Our trained specialists are unique in their understanding of the biological tendencies of squirrels and their habitats.

    Squirrels are the least invasive of the rodent species to humans. Once their habitat has become reduced and the population experiences an explosion that problems arise. The competition for nesting space pushes them into private residences. Once inside, they are quickly destructive of the interior spaces, chewing through everything and anything including insulation, drywall, PVC pipes and wood beams. Luckily trapping and relocating these wild creatures is Omega Animal Removal’s specialty.
