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

Chester Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Squirrels Chew On Wood In Or On A House? Why And What Are The Risks?

Squirrels have very strong teeth and they want to build up on the strength of their teeth and make sure that their teeth remain in the right size by chewing on different materials. They usually end up chewing on most of the things that aren't metal. This means that when a squirrel begins living in your house you must prepare yourself for lots of damage that can be caused by them because of their inherent habit to chew and gnaw on things.

They chew on wood because wood helps them keep their teeth strong and in the right size. Squirrels have a set of teeth which tends to grow very quickly. They need to keep this growth in check by gnawing at things. In their natural environment they can be seen gnawing at nuts and trees regularly. However, when it comes to living in our homes, they have to rely on the wood available in our homes to continue their chewing habits.

In addition to this, squirrels have to break sticks and twigs with their teeth which requires a certain sharpness of the teeth. To accomplish this they must grind their teeth to surfaces which will aid in the sharpening of the teeth. Wood helps in providing them the sharp teeth that they need.

These sharp teeth are very good for the squirrels who rely on their teeth for carrying out numerous activities in their lifetime. However, it can be particularly unwanted for people who end up sharing their homes with a squirrel. This is because squirrels then end up chewing and gnawing into anything that is made of wood in the house.

Since they are known for making attics their homes, there is a possibility that they may chew into the wooden shutters and siding and if you have a wooden frame then it may also weaken the frame through constant chewing. This means that you may end up replacing the roof or incurring a huge cost in repairing it. Most of the times these things have happened over a period of time and many insurance companies may not be willing to pay for the damage depending on the kind of homeowner's insurance you have taken.

They are also known to chew into homes so that they can create a point of entry and exit for themselves. Mother squirrels usually like to chew a hole in an area not far from the nest so that she can easily approach the nest from the outside. When baby squirrels start growing they may even chew into the ceiling which is another damage that can be very expensive to repair. Squirrels also scratch on the wood which leads to marks on the wooden surfaces. If wooden furniture is available for them then they may end up gnawing, chewing and scratching it as well.
