Squirrels are small to medium sized rodents that include tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, etc. The Eastern Grey Squirrel is the most frequently seen mammal in our area and spend the majority of their lives in trees. Eastern squirrels grow about 17 inches long and have greyish brown fur- except for their bellies, which has a pale to white patch. Some Grey Squirrels have a black phase, where their fur is almost entirely black in color, but this is not commonly seen.
Grey Squirrels normally have two litters per year – one in early spring, the other in summer. If squirrels take up harborage in attics of homes, removing them becomes a real challenge if a litter is present. Their ability to chew holes is legendary, and they will go to great extent to re-open access to their homes. Since they are considered a wildlife or game species, live trapping is the accepted method of removal. Again, timing for trapping is crucial. If you believe squirrels have taken up residence in your home, do not hesitate to call a professional. Squirrels will randomly chew on bite resistant items, and can cause considerable damage in a short time frame.
