Everyone likes to see squirrels running around at the park, but when they get into your house, they can do some serious damage. Squirrels can enter homes through holes that already exist and tend to find their way into attics and breezeways. Since squirrels are a member of the rodent family, their front teeth never stop growing, and that means that they need to keep chewing. Once their in your house, they can cost you thousands of dollars in repairs by chewing through electrical wires, water lines, air conditioning ducts, and even furniture. This can be especially dangerous because chewed wires are faulty wires, and faulty wires can spark up and start a fire in your home.
To learn more about squirrels and squirrel removal, watch this video from Texans 1 Rodent Removal. In it we explain the kind of damage that squirrels can do and how to get rid of them.
How to Get Rid of Squirrels Houston
Leaving squirrels to run around in your house will only lead to problems. You need to get rid of squirrels as soon as possible to keep them from going into walls and further into the house. This eventually leads to having dead animals in your walls, which is much more costly than trapping live ones. Aside from the damage they can do, they also cause a mess, meaning that you need a service that will help disinfecting the space invaded by squirrels. When you contact Texans 1 Rodent Removal, we not only trap squirrels and remove them. We clean the space with a fog of sporicide, the same chemical used to keep emergency rooms clean. This chemical sterilizes your house, clearing it of germs left behind by rodents.
We also seal any holes in the space with metal. This not only keeps squirrels out but keeps them out. Since they can’t chew through it, they leave your home in search of another place to nest.
Do Squirrels Bite?
Yes! They bite. Their front teeth never stop growing, so they need to chew on whatever they can in order to keep those teeth from growing too large. This alone doesn’t mean that squirrels bite. Mice, rats, hamsters, and gerbils are all in the same family. People keep them as pets, and they still bite. Squirrels are still rodents, and rodents will fight if they feel threatened.
