NO!!!! Are Squirrels really a nuisance pest?
Squirrels are a typically part of the outdoor landscape in many New Jersey neighborhoods—suburban, rural, and urban neighborhoods alike—that rarely strike people as a nuisance.
However, as many homeowners know, once an infestation begins, “nuisance” becomes an understatement. Squirrels can become a dangerous and damaging force. Once they enter a home, they will nest, gnaw, and chew; everything in site is a possible target for squirrels, especially insulation, wiring, plumbing, and home structures.
4 Things for Squirrel Prevention
- The first and most important step that homeowners can take to prevent an infestation; home owners should secure mesh to any openings, and prevent squirrels from accessing their roof.
- Siding must be intact; any broken siding should be repaired.
- Branches should be trimmed back or removed to make access more difficult. Home owners should also consider discontinuing the use of bird feeders.
- Gardens should be contained with mesh to deter the animals from feeding on them.
Controlling and eliminating a squirrel infestation can be challenging; many species are protected, which makes harming them illegal.
