Scraping, gnawing, and sounds of pitter-patter in the early morning or throughout the day are a good sign you have some squirrels in your house. You may also discover bits of dried-out leaves, sticks, cardboard, or insulation in hidden sections, a clear sign that they’re developing a nest.
Denver’s Squirrel removal and control must be set in motion as soon as the creature had direct contact with you or has been found living in your home! Like many types of rodents, a Squirrel’s front teeth never stop growing. Because of this, Squirrels have a habit of looking for food and chewing electrical wiring and pipes which can lead to fires or water damage.
Squirrels in the Attic
Your attic is like a play area for squirrels. They enjoy nothing more than having a great, completely dry spot to get out of the weather. Squirrels usually develop nests in trees to keep them safe from predators and competing squirrels. Well, your attic is the best nest they might ask for, and they really did not even have to pay for it!
If it weren’t for the noise and droppings, squirrels may not be so bad. However, the biggest danger that a squirrel invasion can lead to, just like mice, is that they chew on electric wires that run through your attic and walls. This is very bad news. As we like to say: “Frayed wires set fires”. There’s no need to burn your house down because some squirrels chose to move in.
Squirrels hide more nuts than they can remember to dig up later. The ones they leave usually grow into trees.

Should I use a Wildlife Exterminator?
Please do not do this! I say this since you’ll probably be calling us to remove the dead squirrels inside your walls. Lots of Denver area exterminators and insect control companies utilize poisons and lethal traps as their one and only weapon when combating squirrels in your attic.
