Squirrels are one of the most common invaders of attics and homes. The first sign of squirrel activity you may notice is noise in your walls or attic. Along with noise, you may see your lights flicker or have electrical problems that could indicate squirrels have chewed wires as they commonly do.

Understanding squirrels:

Great Lakes Nuisance Animal Control has over 40 years experience, to quickly diagnose entry points, identify species of squirrels, and the ability to devise a humane way for removal that is safe for the animals as well as for you and your family. Squirrels will have typically two litters a year and they usually have 3 to 5 Young. The first litter is usually late May, early June and the second litter will come along late summer. There are several species of squirrels that we deal with on a daily basis.

  1. FOX SQUIRRELS –¬†Reddish in color and the biggest of the squirrel family here in Michigan.
  2. GREY & BLACK SQUIRRELS – These squirrels are basically the same as fox squirrels, usually slightly smaller. Grays and blacks are commonly found in the same areas and have all the same characteristics of the fox squirrel. Fox squirrels, gray squirrels, and black squirrels will breed together.
  3. PINE SQUIRRELS – These little red devils as they are commonly referred to, are absolutely the worst type of squirrel to have in your home. They have one speed, which is fast! They are hyper little fellows and they chew everything they come in contact with such as wood, shingles, door trim and especially wires! Pine squirrels will cause the most amount of damage in the shortest amount of time. Pine squirrels also store pine cones in large quantities called catches. If you have pine squirrels it is not uncommon to have your soffits and attics filled with pine cones from these little red devils.
  4. FLYING SQUIRRELS – Technically these squirrels do not fly like a bird merely they glide which gives the impression of flying. These little squirrels are gray in color and have buggy eyes. They generally live in large groups so when you have one you usually have several.
