Discovering that you have unwanted wildlife guests in your attic can be quite unsettling. While most people are familiar with common attic invaders like mice or raccoons, flying squirrels can present unique challenges. In this blog post, we will explore the world of flying squirrels and provide you with practical tips on how we handle them effectively and humanly.
1. Identifying Flying Squirrels:
Before jumping into action, one of our Licensed Nuisance Trappers will confirm if you indeed have flying squirrels in your attic. Our Licensed Trappers are Experts in their distinctive features and behaviors, such as their gliding capabilities and nocturnal habits. Understanding their characteristics helps us make informed decisions during the removal process.

From gnawed wires to droppings and unusual noises, they are experts in spotting these indicators and differentiate them from other animals that could be in the attic. Early detection is key to preventing further damage and ensuring a swift resolution.
3. Assessing the Situation and Inspection:
Once our Nuisance Trapper has confirmed the presence of flying squirrels, it’s time to assess the severity of the situation.

4. Prevention and Exclusion:
Preventing future infestations is essential. We will install a one-way exit Tunnel, for the flying squirrels to go out on their own. This process takes seven to ten days. At this time we would also complete a full or partial wildlife exclusion on your house or commercial property. We use a special galvanized steel sealing up all entry points. We seal down the structure tight, ensuring the squirrels will not be able to reenter, offering Lifetime Guarantees on all work with a minimal annual renewal fee.
