Removing flying squirrels in attics is a detail oriented process. Flying squirrels are colony animals and are very small. Detecting where flying squirrels are entering into your attic can be difficult because they can virtually enter through the smallest cracks of your homes.
Ridding your home of flying squirrels is much more involved than setting traps. You must physically prevent their access by animal proofing your entire home. All openings on your roof must be sealed using the proper materials.
Permanent Flying Squirrel Exclusion
1. Interior Attic Inspection is very important in order to determine where your flying squirrel colony is living. In the attic, locate the flying squirrel nesting area. Look for trails in the insulation to understand their travel patterns. Flying squirrel will litter in the same areas, you may find a large amount of flying squirrel waste in your attic. Identify any damage the flying squirrels may have caused by chewing on wires, building nests in your insulation, bringing in leaves, and living in your boxes.
2. Install a Flying Squirrel Exit Tunnel. After the flying squirrels main entry area into your attic has been determined, the exit tunnel is ready to be installed. Install a flying squirrel exit tunnel directly over the hole the animals are most frequently using. The flying squirrels do not get trapped, they can actually completely exit the tunnel back into the wilderness. Now, however, the flying squirrels cannot use this hole to enter anymore. The exit tunnel is temporary and can be taken down and sealed once all flying squirrels have been removed from the attic.
3. Flying Squirrel proof your home. It is time to seal all of the openings and cracks that you have identified as possible future entrypoints for flying squirrels. Even small gaps around flood lights could be an entry way into the attic. Cracks in siding are popular entry ways for flying squirrels. By animal proofing your home and installing an exit tunnel, you are humanely evicting flying squirrels from your home. Verminators give all of our customers a 5 year guarantee on our flying squirrel proofing and repairs. We provide courtesy follow ups and attic cleanup as well. Verminators accept phone calls 24 hours a day. Our solution is easy and so are our prices!
Flying Squirrels are about 9 inches long, which includes a 3-4 inch tail, weighing about 3 ounces as an adult. They have dense soft brown fur with a white belly.
Flying Squirrels do not really fly but glide into attics from trees. They do this by means of a thin skin that extends out from the sides of the body and connects the front and hind legs as shown in the picture above. In "flying" the squirrels leap spread-eagle and use their outstretched gliding and their bushy tails for guidance. Glides of 60 meters (almost 200 feet) or more have been recorded. Flying Squirrels live inside tree cavities in hardwoods and have 2 litters a year, 2-4 pups per litter. Flying Squirrels eat seeds, nuts, insects, bird eggs, and fruits.
Flying Squirrels can be commonly heard making a great deal of noise at night between sunset and sunrise. May be heard landing on the roof or the sides of the house. will seek shelter and a hiding place, they like to hide in the insulation. Flying Squirrels chew on ornamental and potted plants. They damage screens. May gnaw on wood, electrical wiring and insulation causing fires. Flying Squirrels can enter the attics through the eaves and breathing spaces.
