APPEARANCE

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.

DIET

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.

HABITAT

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.

TREATMENT SOLUTIONS

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

ENTRY INTO HOMES OR BUSINESSES

All types of squirrels are known to invade yards and homes. Ground squirrels wander onto lawns in search of food, while tree squirrels frequent any area where trees are abundant. Houses make ideal nesting sites for tree and flying squirrels, and both take up residence in chimneys and attics.

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

PROBLEMS & DAMAGE

Ground squirrels cause problems in rural areas by competing with livestock for edible pasture and destroying crops or gardens. Their burrowing activities can undermine the soil, creating holes in the ground and weakening man-made embankments. Tree squirrels become nuisances when they go after bird feeders, and they can cause damage to homes when they nest in chimneys and attics. Flying squirrels also enter attics and cause health hazards when they urinate and defecate. All types of squirrels commonly harbor ticks, mites, and other parasites. Certain types of ground squirrels are known to carry plague, as well.

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

PREVENTION & EXCLUSION

Steps can be taken to make yards less attractive to squirrel populations. Thinning out dense branches, removing easily accessible food sources, and implementing squirrel baffles to protect birdfeeders all reduce the possibility of drawing squirrel infestations. Tightly seal all possible entrances, such as gaps around siding, vents, chimneys, and windows, to keep squirrels out of homes.
