Steps to Prevent Squirrel Entry in Crawl Space, Basement or Attic


The Woodlands

Aww... they are so adorable, until they invade your home and become a nuisance. Squirrels may appear cute but if they see your home as a good nesting site, they could become real pests. If this wasn't enough to make you wary, they also transmit diseases.

Why are they Pests?

Why are squirrels a bother? Here is why:

· They cause structural Damage

Squirrel's need space to nest, so a cozy section in an air vent is a great area to start their family. Any wiring that hinders them is chewed off. These bare wires can easily trigger fires, which may not be detected until it is too late. These rodents can also walk on power lines to get into your house, damaging those lines in the process.

· They Destroy Plants

Squirrels frequently dig up lawns while searching for nuts. Your veggie garden or fruit tree will not be spared either. They will eat any planted bulb and will not hold back from feasting on planted seeds.

Squirrels are also known to sneak into houses and feast on anything that smells appealing. A hungry squirrel's sharp teeth can easily rip through a plastic jar of maple syrup or nuts, especially if there is a family to be fed.

The babies are very delicate so it is best to call an expert to remove them. Make sure that you employ someone that is experienced in evicting squirrels and use humane methods to get the job done.

Anyone who has ever had to deal with a squirrel understands that, behind that furry façade, there lies an opportunistic pest. They love to chomp on seeds, wires and will even uproot your prized petunias for fun.

Every little chitter that a squirrel makes is part of a larger scheme to make you think they are harmless, but steal from the bird feeder when your back is turned. Putting up a fence around your garden might seem to be a good idea but that will not be effective if they find a way to go over that fence.

That, though does not mean squirrels deserve a dreadful demise. There are humane and very easy tricks you may utilize to make sure that these rodents never trespass on your premises.

And don't forget to drop by the San Jacinto Monument to see the battlefield where Texas won its independence from Mexico.

Trapping Tips

You go out to get into your car and see all your carefully planted bulbs knocked out of the ground or missing. Half dollar sized holes are all through your carefully prepared and planted flower beds. You lawn looks like an army of bad golfers came through during the night, leaving scores of divots all over the place. What could do so much damage?

This is the way most people discover they have an armadillo living near them. Armadillos are those tank like animals you see by the side of the road after they have lost an argument with a vehicle. As their range has increased and they have moved further north, more and more people are having disagreements with armadillos.

Armadillos have evolved to be digging machines. They have large front claws and dig burrows as well as dig for food. The armadillo has poor eyesight but can smell an insect a long way off. They are 8-17 pounds, about the size of an opossum. Armadillos produce one litter a year consisting of four babies of the same sex. They are born in a nest in the burrow.

When you trap the armadillo, do not touch it. Armadillos carry leprosy and it is illegal, at least in Texas, to keep a live armadillo for that reason. It is also illegal to release an armadillo on someone else's property without written permission. That leaves lethal disposal. Most pest control companies will come out for a fee and collect the armadillo so you do not have to do this yourself.

Armadillos have been around since the age of the dinosaurs. They were the size of Volkswagens then. It is far better to coexist with a little effort to exclude the armadillo from flower beds, garden beds, and other places they dig than to kill them. Remember, they were here first.
