This customer contacted us about removing squirrels in attic of their home in Mooresville. Their neighbor had told them they had been seeing squirrels entering rain gutter downspouts on the ground. The squirrel would then climb up the down spout, run along the rain gutter, and then disappearing into a hole. The customer knew they had a problem on their hands.
Squirrel Inspection In Mooresville
The inspection began in the attic near the area the squirrels were said to “disappear”. We found a huge hole in the home’s facia board next to the rain gutter downspout. The homeowner did not believe that any squirrel was able to get into his home. He thought his aluminum gutter guard would keep squirrels out of this home. The gutter guard allowed a small crack above the rain gutter rim for the squirrels to try to enter. We explained that squirrels were fantastic problem solvers and are very good at finding small access points to enter a home.
Removing Squirrels In Attic
With this situation, we had to remove a sections of the gutter guards. We then installed four different one-way doors to get the squirrels out of the attic and not allow them back in. Since we were able to catch the squirrels early in their home invasion, the cost for repairs was minimal. Fortunately, there was also no electrical damage found. Clean up only consisted of a few droppings and the start on a squirrel nest. The nesting material consisted of plastic from a landscaping bark bag located under the home’s deck. After waiting three days for the squirrel to leave the attic, the one-way doors were removed. Following this, galvanized steel wire covers were placed on all openings of the downspouts.
