ATLANTA, GA, October 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- In their natural habitat, squirrels are lovable furry creatures that do their fair share of reforestation by spreading the nuts and seeds of various trees as they build up their winter cache of food. However, in your home, squirrels are pests and are no different from other rodents that must be removed by an Atlanta wildlife removal specialist. However, if you follow these simple steps you can hopefully prevent squirrels from invading your home in the first place.
Hang a "Not Welcome Sign" on Your House
The key to avoiding a call to an expert in squirrel removal in Atlanta is to prevent them from gaining entry in the first place. Check your house for possible entry points, keeping in mind that squirrels can fit into very small holes, even gaps the size of an adult fist. Check for soft or rotting wood and replace it as soon as you can. Squirrels are notorious gnawers and they can eventually chew their way into your house unless you keep wood surfaces intact and in good condition.
Trim tree branches at least five or six feet away from your house to prevent squirrels from jumping from trees onto the rooftop where they can gain entry to your house through the attic. Cover wires and cables that connect to your house with a split PVC pipe or a hard plastic sheathing that is about three or four feet long. This prevents squirrels from getting a firm foothold on the wires and coming close enough to your house to get inside.
When to Call for Help
When squirrels do gain entry into your house, it is best to call a professional Atlanta animal removal company. Even if they are considered pests, most states still do have laws that control their proper removal and handling.
