Surprising Info To Keep Squirrels Out Of Your Attic This Fall

It’s hard to keep squirrels out of your attic once the weather gets cold. This change reminds them winter is on its way, and they’ll be desperate to find somewhere warm. This goes double for squirrel mamas with babies. When you put it that way, it can seem cruel to keep them out at all, but it pays to remember how destructive wild animals can be. Not only can they soak your ceilings in urine, destroy your insulation and start fires by eating through live wires, they can pass on diseases they bring into your home. Comparatively, it’s much easier—and safer—to keep squirrels out than remove them once they’ve set up shop, so follow these simple squirrel-proof tips: Get your trees trimmed this fall to keep squirrels out of your attic. Autumn is the best time of year to trim your trees for the purpose of removing damage and stimulating new growth. As an additional benefit, it helps keep branches away from your house, making it more difficult for squirrels to hop onto your roof.
