WHEN SQUIRRELS BECOME A PROBLEM
Squirrels are usually gray, sometimes red, brown, or black. Adults average about one pound in weight. They can live for up to ten years, but life expectancy in the wild probably isn't more than 3-4 years. Squirrels give birth to two litters per year, one in late summer, and one in winter. The female gives birth to 3-4 young after a 44 day gestation, and the young grow quickly, and are weaned in about ten weeks.
Squirrels are most active in morning and evening. Squirrels eat mostly nuts and seeds. They live in a variety of habitats, both forest and suburban or city areas. They establish home territories, and often communicate via scent, chattering, and flickering of the fluffy tail.
Squirrels love to live in Dallas Texas attics. They also love to chew, and will chew on hoses or wires, ducts, pipes once inside an attic. People don't like the noises of squirrels running about above the ceiling or the scratching in the attic, but it's really the chewing that's a problem. If squirrels chew on electrical wires in an attic, it can create a fire risk. Squirrels also bring in nesting material and leave urine and feces in an attic. They also commonly nest in a chimney, where they can sometimes get stuck and frantically scratch, or sometimes even get into the house through the fireplace and inside the house.
If you have squirrels on the property, the best thing to do is to get rid of them before they have babies and become an infestation. If it's squirrels in the attic, then all of the open holes and vulnerable areas through which they can enter should be sealed shut with a material that squirrels can't chew through, such as steel.
