Getting Rid of Dallas Squirrels
One of the most frequent squirrel problems we hear from residents in is home and property damage, both interior and exterior—attics and inside walls are common nesting areas for squirrels. More common Dallas squirrel problems include:
- Insulation Damage — Squirrels are notorious for ripping insulation and using it to construct a nest. They will push insulation down and around your attic, compromising its ability to do its job and causing you potentially higher energy costs.
- Feces & Urine Damage/Hazards — Wildlife feces is highly dangerous and can carry many diseases. The main hazard posed by squirrel feces is salmonellosis, which is contracted through handling feces, or through direct contact from the animal.Symptoms of salmonellosis include fever, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and chills, lasting up to a week. Feces and urine that accumulates also presents another costly problem—property damage. The squirrel feces will need to be removed and the damage will repaired.
- General Nuisance Behavior — Squirrels are known for being aggressive when it comes to birdseed and birdfeeders, often scaring native songbirds off. Squirrels also tease domestic pets like dogs.
