Many types of squirrels live throughout North America, including tree squirrels, ground squirrels, and flying squirrels. Most often encountered in residential areas, especially in backyards and public parks, species of tree squirrels pose the biggest problems to urban residents, while ground squirrels create issues in rural areas or on farms. Nocturnal flying squirrels are not encountered as often, but they can nonetheless cause serious problems for homeowners.

Tree squirrels generally grow between 1 and 2 feet in length and have long, bushy tails that provide them with the balance necessary to climb and leap among treetops. Their coats can be black, gray, brown, or rusty red. Ground squirrels are usually red to smoky gray in color and may display patterns of stripes or spots. Their tails are much shorter and thinner than those of tree squirrels. Flying squirrels are distinctively gray with lighter underbellies and dark black stripes along their sides.
Both tree squirrels and flying squirrels eat nuts, seeds, grasses, roots, and other plant materials. As omnivores, they will not hesitate to take advantage of easily accessible food sources such as bird feeders and garbage. Flying squirrels are carnivorous and eat insects, birds, and eggs.
Tree squirrels and flying squirrels thrive in wooded areas with mature hardwood trees and ample groundcover. They construct nests out of twigs and leaves high up in tree branches or in hollowed tree cavities. Ground squirrels prefer to live in fields or open grassy areas, such as meadows or pastures, where they dig burrows and tunnel systems for themselves.
