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 Laurens 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 Laurens animal control for wildlife issues.

Laurens Wildlife Removal Tip: Describe Squirrel Nests, How They Are Built And Where

Squirrels build nest in tree branches, tree cavities and at homes. While we find the first two to be amazing, the last one can become very unwanted for us. When squirrels take up residence in your home they are most probably planning to raise their young ones at your home. Squirrels who live in trees often have a second or a third home too, and they are known to take up residence in abandoned bird nests while searching for food. Squirrel nests are often called drey and are built of twigs, leaves and grass. While this is how they nest naturally, many squirrels also build their homes in artificial cavities in the attic or around your home and garden.

They are in the habit of using attics as a place for their nest because of the warmth and comfort it provides. They usually make their nests in the edges usually down an eave or the soffit. They usually stick to the edges when they move around as well. Pregnant squirrels may choose to give birth in your attic so it builds a nest in the house by looking for insulation material and gnawing wood.

These materials make for good bedding material for the squirrel and its babies. Pregnant squirrels raise their young ones by themselves. They salvage food from bird feeders and look for nuts and seeds in the garden. The nests can include shredded paper and vegetation as well. The formation of the nest relies heavily on the area it is being built. While the tree nest are made of leaves and twigs which are easily available in the area, squirrel nests that are built in the house use materials from the house mainly.

The fact that squirrels are good at climbing makes them choose the attic as their nesting place. Mother squirrels also prefer a higher place when it comes to nesting so they choose the attic for building their nest. The edge of the attic is also a good place for squirrels to build their nests. The mother finds these places easy to reach when the babies need to be fed.

While squirrels and the squirrel babies can create a lot of noise, you may not notice the fact that a squirrel has given birth to young ones in your home for the first month. This is because the squirrel babies do not begin to explore their surrounding before they are six weeks old.

Squirrels are in the habit of damaging the house extensively as they try to salvage materials for the nest so be careful and try to keep squirrels away from your house as much as possible.
