  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Arkansas's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Arkansas's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local White county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Searcy animal control for wildlife issues.

Searcy Wildlife Removal Tip: Will A Squirrel In the Attic Have A Nest of Babies?

Attics resemble big hollow trees which are one of the best places where a squirrel can take up residence. The attics provide shelter and comfort to the squirrels without the fear of being predated. This is one of the reasons why it is a great place to raise their young ones. The attic area is usually a place where squirrels can find nesting material as well. The insulation is one of the nesting materials used by squirrels and they usually chew on wood and wires.

With so many benefits to consider, squirrels like to live in attics and raise their litter of babies here. In the US, the eastern grey squirrel is commonly found in the houses and lawns and is known for creating nuisance. While it is not necessary that every squirrel that lives in an attic will have a nest of babies, it has been noticed that many female squirrels prefer the attic because it is safer than the outside environment for its babies.

If you find out that several squirrels are living in your attic, then most probably it is a female with her babies. The young squirrels grow quickly and are usually the size of adult squirrels in a span of six weeks. Once they reach adult size, you will be able to hear them running around, chewing on things and scratching the wood.

They have two litters of young ones every year. Usually a female squirrel gives birth to a litter in winter and one more litter of baby squirrels is born in late summer. A litter is generally made of 3 to 4 babies who are given birth after 44 days of pregnancy. Just an inch long and an ounce heavy during birth, these squirrels grow quickly. Baby squirrels continue to stay in the attic till the time the mother is ready to bear another litter.

Till this point you may end up hearing noises especially during early morning and evening as the babies run around the attic. They usually stick to the edges when moving around. The mother squirrels seek out a high place for the nest so that it is safe from predators. The fact that baby squirrels can be very vulnerable and may easily fall prey to birds or animals makes squirrels look for vantage points like treetops.

While treetops are a great place to give birth, squirrels are aware that there may be a chance of vulnerability in the treetops, however, squirrels who live in urban areas find attics to be a safer place. So if you find out that there is a squirrel living in your attic, be sure to check for babies too or else you may end up excluding the mother and the babies may die out of starvation.
