How To Prevent A Squirrel Infestation

You may not give much thought to a squirrel scampering around your property. Despite their small size, these rodents can cause major property damage. Below are some tips that can help prevent squirrel infestations.

Eliminate Access Points

When it comes to keeping squirrels away from your humble abode, eliminating entrance points is key. To accomplish this, be sure to repair any gaps that are adjacent to your windows and doors. It is also important to install a cap on your chimney to keep these critters out. 

Trim Tree Branches

It is commonplace to see squirrels up in a tree as they search for nuts and seeds. This can be concerning for homeowners because squirrels can use long tree branches to climb onto the roof. To prevent this from happening, homeowners should have their tree branches trimmed back at least 6 feet away from the roof. 

Keep Garbage Bags In Sealed Receptacles

Squirrels are not exactly picky eaters. In fact, they will chomp on any type of food they encounter; which includes the food scraps in your garbage cans. You can stop squirrels from making a feast out of your leftovers by storing garbage bags in sealed containers.
