BASIC SQUIRREL INFO
Squirrels often find bedding material by shredding roof or wall paper, and shredding vent ducts and insulation around pipes. The biggest problem is that they chew, and I’ve seen hundreds of cases where they’ve chewed electrical wires. It’s estimated that half of house fires are due to rodents chewing on electrical wires. I have also seen plumbing lines chewed through, resulting in water damage. If you have any wires or pipes in the attic, the squirrels will chew on them. Additionally, wild animals that live in houses also frequently die in houses, and the odor of a dead squirrel is horrid. We have removed many dead squirrels from attics producing those horrible odors. They also urinate and defecate everywhere. This is not only unsanitary, but smells bad, and squirrel droppings are a host to a number of diseases. Like all animals, squirrels can carry parasites, they leave behind excrement, and they can leave both in your attic. Squirrel droppings, like almost any wildlife dropping, are associated with Leptospirosis and Salmonela. If squirrels have gotten in to your house, they will create a dangerous and unsanitary environment for you and your family.
Female squirrels give birth to two litters of young per year, one in the spring, and one in the winter. The time of birth can vary a bit based on several factors, but generally the winter litter is born in early February and the spring litter in early August. There are normally two to six young in each litter. The gestation period is about 44 days. The young are weaned at 7 weeks and leave the nest after 10 weeks.
