Flying Squirrel Control, Trapping & Removal Services
We can rid you of Flying Squirrel problems safely and efficiently
Flying squirrels are known for their ability to glide from one tree to another with the help of a wing-like structure on their body. Despite being able to fly, these creatures are very similar to regular squirrels. However, flying squirrels tend to be nocturnal beings who subsist off of primaryily fruit, insects, and seeds. Flying squirrels build nests in trees to hold their young.
If you come across a flying squirrel in your home or in your attic, do not try to trap it yourself. Flying squirrels can carry diseases and other illnesses in their fur and can spread these to humans if they come into direct contact.

Flying squirrels are the smallest of all squirrel species. They have light brown fur, dark stripes running along their sides, and lighter cream-colored fur on their bellies. Small rounded ears and large dark eyes give them an attractive appearance. When they leap from tree branches, they extend their arms and legs and allow their webs of skin to catch the air. Flying squirrels use their furry tails for steering when in flight. The rodents rarely exceed 10 inches in length.
Similar to other types of squirrels, flying squirrels mostly feed on nuts, berries, and fruits, which are available to them without leaving their tree homes. Their carnivorous tendencies lead them to regularly eat baby bird eggs, as well as insects and the occasional small animal.
Forests throughout North America host flying squirrels. The creatures prefer to nest in warm, enclosed spaces such as hollowed out sections of trees, crevices, bird boxes, and abandoned bird nests. They live in large colonies that huddle together when they sleep in order to keep warm.
