Risks of Squirrel Infestation
Although uncommon, squirrels potentially pose serious health and safety risks to humans. When squirrels make themselves at home in your attic or other parts of your home or business, they will start to procreate. As generations build up, squirrels may chew up electrical wires, causing significant damage and electricity problems-- costing you even more money to repair.
Beyond the damage to your home and business, squirrels also pose serious health risks. The most prominent health risk passed from squirrels to humans are ticks and fleas. These may not sound like dangers or even health risks, but the ticks squirrels leave in your home can spread tick fever to you and your pets. Both fleas and ticks pose a second threat of infestation as well. Notorious for infesting carpets and furniture, their small size makes eradication extremely difficult.
It is rare for a squirrel to carry rabies, and in most squirrel bite cases, the hospital won’t even treat you for rabies. Squirrels, however, can pass on Leptospirosis, a bacterial disease spread through the contact of urine. If a squirrel has this disease and you eat or drink food contaminated with its urine, or your skin (or mucous membranes) comes in contact with water or soil contaminated with the infected squirrel’s urine, the disease can be transferred to you.
Another serious disease squirrels could carry is the Plague. This disease can be transferred to humans through a bite or direct contact with the infected animal. There is no telling which squirrels are infected with disease and which are not. It is safer to have a professional Milwaukee exterminator eradicate squirrels from your home or business rather than trying to get rid of them yourself.
At Home Remedies For Squirrels in Your Attic
Squirrels enter attics by chewing through vents and roofs or climbing through chimneys. Possessing extreme climbing and biting abilities, squirrels are one of the most difficult rodents to eliminate. However, you may try these at-home squirrel removal tips before calling our Milwaukee pest control specialists:
- Install LED bulbs or pest control strobes designed to irritate rodents.
- Place wire mesh fencing over any open holes, vents, chimney areas and other openings. Create a funnel exit at the end of the attic, allowing the pests to leave but keeping them from coming back in.
- Set cage traps and seal entry points after they leave.
Although these techniques are helpful, they may not always be the answer to the permanent removal of squirrels that are in your attic. Squirrels can attempt to chew through sealed areas and may replace the ones you eliminated. You may also have difficulty working in the attic during mating season. Save yourself the hassle of a high electric bill or repeat infestation by calling A-Landlords. Our Milwaukee rodent exterminators utilize the latest industry expertise and safety training to provide squirrel removal services that work. We will thoroughly examine your attic, determining the seriousness of infestation and the right method to quickly eliminate every squirrel. You don’t have to blow the bank on at home remedies only to see them fail when our Milwaukee exterminators get the job done for less.
