Flying Squirrels in attics — November 11, 2005
The first cold nights of autumn have sent flying squirrels and mice back into houses in an effort to stay warm. In the last month we've been busy responding to dozens calls for flying squirrels in attics. Flying squirrels make scratching and scampering noises in ceilings and walls that will often keep homeowners awake at night. Mice on the other hand make only faint noises and are usually discovered by their droppings or a mouse sighting in the house. Most homeowners describe a flying squirrel problem as "a party in the attic" and some even mention hearing acorns rolling around. If you think that you may have a problem with flying squirrels, mice or another type of critter, please feel free to contact us to speak with a wildlife expert.
