Squirrel Elimination in Massachusetts — February 2, 2008
The first month of 2008 gave us some miserable working conditions. Frigid temperatures combined with snow and ice across most of our service area has had us a bit frustrated. We still get the same amount of calls from customers this time of year but we are often unable to perform any work because of snow and ice on roofs.
In between snowstorms we did quite a few flying squirrels removal projects. These animals do not tolerate the cold weather very well so when the freezing cold temperatures arrive they head for your attic to stay warm. The most common complaint that we hear from these nocturnal critters is noise in the attic or ceilings at night. If you have these symptoms or you can hear acorns rolling around in your ceiling you may have flying squirrels. Here are some photos from a couple recent flying squirrel evictions.
Wrentham Squirrel Elimination
We were initially called out to this house for a flying squirrel running around the living room. I found the squirrel hiding behind the hutch. After the misguided squirrel was apprehended we found a colony of them residing in the attic of the house. We squirrel proofed the exterior of the house and sent them packing.
Flying Squirrel Elimination
I ran into this flying squirrel in an attic in Andover about a month ago. This little guy was very cool and calm and wasn't alarmed by my presence at all. He stayed perched on an attic fan for quite a while while I took some pictures and even shot a quick video of him.
Weymouth Squirrel Elimination
While inspecting an attic in Weymouth Massachusetts I noticed a large pile of insulation in the corner of the building that the squirrels had made into a nest. Once I made my way over to it a squirrel darted out of the nest and toward a hole in the gutter. The squirrel paused just before it ran out the hole and I managed to get one picture before it disappeared. The next day while performing the squirrel exclusion I got a picture of the outside of the entry point. It's not often that you get to see a squirrel's hole from both sides like this.
We recently completed two insulation removal projects. One was a drastic case of over insulation. Mountains of insulation that were strewn with mouse feces. The other was simply an attic that was home to a few dozens bats for 8-10 years.
