Squirrels are cute animals. They search out nuts, nibble on them with their little paws, and of course store them away somewhere for the winter.
In New Orleans, we forget about the winter since our cold months are a blip on the calendar year. But, this does not mean that squirrels in Louisiana
forget about the winter, especially when it comes to the best place to stay for the winter.
Squirrels are not the typical animal that homeowners are concerned about damaging their homes. Unfortunately, this cute little animal can cause damage when they invade our home in numbers. Squirrels really enjoy the warmth and insulation of attics. Sometimes you may find you have a squirrel family who has found a way into your attic. There are several signs that you may have a squirrel problem.
Signs of a squirrel infestation
The signs that you may have a squirrel infestation, include:
Squirrels on your roof
Squirrels entering your attic

If you think you have a squirrel infestation, seek the advice of a pest control company. Professional pest control companies know and can identify the signs of a squirrel infestation. Plus, an expert knows the best way to evict the squirrels safely and how to eliminate them from coming back into your home.
