There are three species of squirrels in Alabama, including the Eastern Grey Squirrel, Fox Squirrel, and Southern Flying squirrel. All three species can have up to two litters per year, one in the spring and one in the fall. The Eastern Grey Squirrel can be found in most habitat types in Alabama. The Southern Flying Squirrel is nocturnal, which means they are active at night, unlike its close relatives, the Grey and Fox Squirrels, which are active during the day.
Squirrels enter homes during winter months to seek warmth & shelter. Squirrels can chew through wooden surfaces to gain entry into your home or attic. Squirrels are a member of the rodent family. They chew to wear down their continuously growing front teeth. This gnawing can be very destructive to the exterior of your home, and once they get inside, they have been known to chew on electrical wires, which is a fire hazard. Squirrels create tiny holes in the walls and ceilings of your home. Later these holes become the perfect entry points for bats, raccoons, flies, and other animals.
Go Pro Wildlife Removal services include the removal of squirrels from a structure. We look at all possible entry points, repair and close these entry points so squirrels not only can get in your home. After entry points have been sealed, on the main entry point, we trap through a one-way door any remaining squirrels. By doing this we eliminate all target animals causing damage and the problems and then seal the final point of entry.
