Squirrel Removal Tampa FL

Scraping, gnawing and sounds of pitter-patter in the morning or throughout the day are a really good indication you have some squirrels in your home. You might also find bits of dried leaves, sticks, cardboard or insulation where they shouldn’t be. These are all signs that squirrels are constructing a nest.

Squirrel removal and control must be started as soon as the critter has been found living in your home! A Squirrel’s front teeth do not stop growing, so they need to regularly grind them down. Because of this, Squirrels have a habit of chewing electrical wiring and plumbing which can lead to fire problems or water damage.

Squirrel in the Attic

Your attic is like a playground for squirrels. They enjoy nothing more than to have a good, completely dry place to get out of the weather and make a nest for their young. Squirrels usually develop nests in trees to keep them safe from predators and competing squirrels. This makes your attic the best place to nest that they could ask for.

If it weren’t for the ruckus and animal waste, squirrels might not be so bad. Yet, the greatest danger that a squirrel invasion can cause is that they gnaw on electric wires that go through your attic and walls. This is extremely bad news. As we like to claim: “Frayed wires set fires”. There’s no need to burn your house down because some squirrels made a decision to move in. If you’re not even sure if you’ve got wild animals up there or not, its a good idea to call us to come out and see if you really need Tampa squirrel removal. Animal control is never fun to pay for, but better safe than sorry.

The risk of fire from a squirrel in your attic

Squirrels are dangerous to your home and family because they are well known to chew on electrical wires. This causes electrical shorts that can run the risk of overheating and starting a fire. The risk of this is real. It happens more often than your would be comfortable with, so do not let it happen to you! They are the furriest fire hazards we can think of!

If your house has any sign of squirrel damage (gnawed holes in walls or the attic) it’s time to take action against them now before there are issues with fires. Make sure to call AAAC Wildlife Removal of Tampa Florida for our squirrel removal services immediately to get the issue under control and to prevent any more damage or risks.

A Squirrel in your home is bad, but fires caused by one are even worse! If you see signs of gnawed holes, frayed wires, or have noticed a smell like something burning coming from parts of your house – it’s time to move forward with squirrel trapping. We guarantee humane removal with every Tampa animal control project we undertake

Signs you have Squirrels in the Attic

We are animal removal experts with extensive experience and know how to determine if squirrels are in your attic. Here is a quick list.

  • In your crawlspace or attic, you find insulation that is damaged or missing.
  • Droppings on the attic vents or floor
  • Paw prints can be found around the foundation of your house. They may also be found near the interior openings, such as garage doors or fireplaces.
  • A musty stench emanates from the attic’s open entrance. This is an indication that they are using the attic as their home and nesting.
  • There are sounds like squirrels skittering on the roof or in the attic. You will hear squirrels running about.
  • A strong urine smell is detected.

It is difficult to identify signs of wild animal infestations. If you notice any of these symptoms, contact AAAC Wildlife Removal of Tampa FL to have the animals removed with the proper humane treatment.

Are you at risk of being displaced by fire, flooding or other types of damage? You might be surprised that squirrels aren’t calling for help yet if they live in your home.

Should I use a Pest Control company in Tampa, FL for Animal Removal?

No! Many exterminators in Tampa FL will leave poison and lethal traps and consider the work done. You will then need to call professionals like us to remove the dead squirrels all over your home, inside your walls, your attic anywhere a small animal can find to die.

Plenty of Tampa area exterminators and pest control and prevention companies use poisons or repellent as their first and only tool when combating squirrels in your attic and do not even attempt to utilize other humane animal removal techniques.

This could work well on ant and termite colonies, however it is an extremely bad strategy when it involves wildlife removal.

Look at a humane, exclusion-based company service provider when handling a squirrel pest issue. Not only is it kinder to the animals, in the vast majority of instances, it is by far the most effective option. No need to create a squirrel graveyard in your attic for you to find (and smell) months later.

Squirrel Dead Animal Removal

Residential homes can become a problem if dead animals like squirrels are present. This is not only bad news for the owner, but it can also pose a health risk to any family members who might come across them. AAAC Wildlife Removal of Palm Bay is needed to remove any dead animals from these properties. Can you imagine what could happen if your child discovered that?

It can be difficult to get rid of dead animal odors. This may take a lot time. Because the odor can persist for a long time, it must be removed using proper steps. Decomposing bodies can release gases that cause unpleasant stench in the home. This is why it’s important to control odors.

Sealing Animal Entry Points

One more reason to make use of a wildlife professional for squirrels in your attic is that you need to find and seal every one of those entry holes. Tampa area squirrels are masters at fitting into tight spaces (they would certainly be very good in a “heist” movie).

Squirrels have incredibly powerful hind legs that let them leap a distance of up to twenty feet!

You require professionals who will seal each and every single access point on the first try. This will certainly save you precious time, money, and peace of mind. Don’t take any chances when it comes to your home and health!

Tampa Wildlife Control Services and Damage Repair

Squirrels can do serious damage to your roof, soffits, and eaves. Sometimes they use their teeth and claws to expand tiny access points to make it larger and much more comfortable to enter and leave. They will leave dangerous feces in your attic, much like a bat will. Don’t risk your families safety by attempting to get rid of invasive wildlife by yourself. Contact us for professional removal services so you can sleep well at night.
