Many of Indiana'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 Indiana's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Marion Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Get Squirrels Out Of The Attic

So, you have squirrels in your attic? Well! It has become common trouble for most homeowners these days because the rodents are becoming more and more friendly with human habitats. It can be due to your extreme love towards these cute looking creatures. Even if you feed them for few days; they start looking for a home near your house, and sometimes they end up making nests in your attic as well.

Having squirrels in the attic can be a difficult situation because these creatures cause huge damage in the premises. Their first target will be your attic insulation, and with time they will chew all the electric wires and pipes running through attic area. Hence, it is important to take immediate steps to get rid of squirrels in the attic.

Below we have mentioned few steps to get rid of squirrels:

Step 1: Identify all entry points:

First of all, you have to make efforts to identify all the entry points through which squirrels enter your attic. You can try a cardboard-flour trick to mark their tracks. Simply get cardboard and spread some flour over it. Place this cardboard in the area where squirrels keep on visiting more often. It will help you to mark the squirrel tracks, and these footprints will take you to the entry points that they often use to get into your attic.

Step 2: Seal all entry points except one:

Next task for homeowners is to seal all the attic entry points through squirrels get into the premises. Use some good quality materials to block these entrance points; you can prefer to take steel wool, and caulk, etc. In case if they enter through chimney tops; you can use wire mesh to cover the area and wall openings can be fixed using bricks. You need to keep only one hole open so that squirrels living inside can come out of it.

Step 3: Give them some incentive:

Now as you have sealed all the entry-exit points and squirrels have only one hole to get out of their nest; you need to attract them outside using some delicious incentive. They will love to come out to enjoy some delicious food, and in the meanwhile, you can block the last open hole as well. However, if the incentives do not work well, you can try some repellents to annoy them in their nests. Playing loud music for several hours and installing bright lights in the area can help you to force them to move out of the area.

Step 4: Learn to prevent squirrel infestation:

Once you are successful to get rid of squirrels, don't forget to make some efforts to prevent squirrel infestation for future as well. These rodents can try to return to their home soon, so you need to protect the area by keeping your premises free of open food sources. Clean the gardens and yard very well so that squirrels do not find anything to eat. This technique will naturally force them to look for any other source of food, and they will leave your area.
