Why Do Squirrels Choose To Invade Attics?
Grey Squirrels give birth to babies twice a year. This happens once in the spring and once in the fall. During mating season, attics are among one of their favorite places to build nests. This is due to the warmth and darkness that they offer. This makes it an ideal place for the squirrels give birth and raise their babies. A squirrel can give birth to up to six babies in each litter. The number of Grey squirrels in the attic can accumulate rather quickly. Grey squirrels will enter an attic by chewing holes from the outside through soffits, gutters, trim, construction gaps or any other weak areas that allow them to have easy access inside.
