Feelin’ Squirrely: A few facts about summer squirrels

Squirrels can be a common issue ranging from outside yard activity to them curiously entering attics and chimneys through unscreened vents, or openings. Active mostly during the early morning and late afternoon, squirrels seek protective shelter for their nests and young. Unfortunately they tend to be invasive in some yards causing problems, especially with fruit or nut trees, which are their favorite things to eat. Squirrels are omnivores; they eat a wide variety of plant food, including nuts, seeds, pine cones, fruits, fungi, and green vegetation, and they also eat insects, eggs, and even small birds, smaller mammals, frogs, and carrion. In tropical areas, these foods often replace nuts.

Here at Gopher Patrol we offer some ways to control for the active critters eating those trees. Our service includes 4 visits in which we will set stations that attract them, and encourage feeding their ravenous appetites. Feel free to give us a call and let us know where your squirrel issues are troubling you!

We have been servicing for squirrels for almost 18 years! Call 888-466-4674 any time!
