How To Get Rid Of Squirrels In My Attic?

July 4, 2022 12:00 am Published by Leave your thoughts

The idea of having squirrels in your attic is not something that you will want to deal with for long. Here at Pied Piper Pest Control, we take this issue very seriously. 

Why Do Squirrels Get into Attics? 

Squirrels are naturally drawn to attics because they provide a shelter for them from their natural predators. Attics are also high up, which is ideal for squirrels. Attics also provide warmth and dryness which are also upsides as far as the squirrels are concerned. If you notice signs of squirrel infestation, you need to know what to do right now. 

What Can You Do to Get Squirrels Out? 

There are ways that you can keep squirrels out of your attic. What you will want to do is make your attic as unappealing to them as possible. You may do this by: 

  • Ensuring that all garbage cans inside and outside your house are firmly secured
  • Look at the chimney cap on your home to see if you may need to replace it
  • Cut away tree limbs that provide easy access to your attic
  • Repair any areas of rotting wood in your attic

What Steps to Take if Squirrels are Already in the Attic

Perhaps your biggest issue is that you have squirrels already in the attic that you need to get out. What we recommend in this case is that you make as much noise as possible to scare them away. Squirrels are extremely sensitive to sound as they need to be in order to avoid their natural predators. 

You can make a lot of noise in the area of your attic that may be enough to deter squirrels from hanging around. You may bang a broom up against the ceiling, turn on your radio or television very loudly and leave it playing. You may also bring a bright spotlight into your attic in order to alert the squirrels that there may be possible danger in the attic.

Any of these methods may be potentially effective, but it is also possible that you will find that the squirrels tend to hang around regardless. If they just don’t seem to want to leave, you can call our team. We have expertly trained employees who can humanly remove squirrels from attics.
