Squirrels are rodents and can be easily recognized by their bushy tail and grey or brown fur. While they prefer to nest in trees, squirrels are forced to look for other places to live with humans encroaching on their natural habitat. Squirrels build nests in attics, chimneys, roofs, vents, walls, and garages. They constantly have the urge to chew and therefore cause damage as they can chew through virtually any material including wood, insulation, electrical wires, and shingles.
You will know you have a squirrel infestation by damage from their gnawing. Squirrels are quite active during the day, particularly in the early morning and late afternoon, so it is quite possible that if they have infested your home you will hear the sounds of their activity if they are nesting in your attic, walls, chimney, and so forth. Squirrels daytime activity includes searching for and storing food such as nuts, fruit, bark, leaves, seeds, bulbs, buds, and insects.

The first step in elimination of squirrels is to locate their entry point into the home. Once that is found, their habits and schedule should be determined. In addition, you should note how many squirrels are present and whether or not they have young nesting. Sometimes detection of squirrels is difficult because they sometimes make their nests under insulation.
