What kind of damage do squirrels cause in an attic?
In most of the cases the attic floor is made by the wood paneling. Sometimes it is made from the plywood but at other times it is constructed by whole wood. Whatever the kind of flooring may be, the squirrels can severely damage this material by scratching and scampering over it. The presence of squirrels can be easily confirmed by the voices mad by the squirrels. There are many places which can serve as the entry points for these squirrels especially in the attic area. Similarly once entered in the attic, there are also many hiding places there. It is normally said that banning the entry points for squirrels can considerably reduce the chances of their gaining entry into the house premises in general and attic in particular.
