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.

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 Greenwood 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 Greenwood animal control for wildlife issues.

Greenwood Wildlife Removal Tip: What Kind Of Damage Do Squirrels Cause In The Attic?

Attics are one of the most comfortable places for squirrels when it comes to living inside the house. These places are easy to reach and are warm and dry. This means that they have a good place to live in without the fear of being predated. For all the advantages that an attic has for the squirrels, the same can be truly disadvantageous for you. When squirrels choose to live in your house, they can become a lot of nuisance because of the way in which they can destroy your attic.


Squirrels can chew into the wires in your attic which can result in fires. The attic is usually a place where electricity wires are installed when the home is wired. If a squirrel eats into these wires, it can lead to sparking and can cause an electrical short circuit or lead to fires in the house. Fire hazards and electrical damage can be caused in such events.


Squirrels love to chew on wood and attics usually have wood. If squirrels infest your house and chew on the wood then it can lead to a weakening of the roof which can get pretty expensive to repair. Very often they can also chew into furniture which can make them look ugly. It also means that the furniture will have to be replaced to redone so that it can be used further.

Eaves troughs

Wooden eaves when damaged by squirrels, leads to holes through which water passes through. This water leads to damage in your attic causing the formation of mold which can be hard to remove and can also lead to health risks because of the dampened environment.


Squirrel droppings and urine bear a stench which can be unsettling in the house. It can also led to health risks especially if you have children in the family. Fecal matter is said to be the means for carrying many diseases. Flies are also attracted to squirrel droppings in the house. They can cause hygiene issues if they begin living in your house.

Squirrels find the insulation material to be particularly comfortable for their bedding material. So you may notice shredded insulation and wood frame when dealing with squirrels in the house. If you have a garden where you keep a bird feeder, you may notice that your bird feeder is an easy attraction for the squirrels because of the food it has.

While the damage they cause can be intense, very often insurance may not cover the amount of damage squirrels cause to your home. This means that you will have to closely look at the different clauses of insurance to make sure that you will be covered for damage caused by rodents.
