Polk County is known for its rich Florida landscapes, an abundance of lakes, and its population of natural wildlife — squirrels included. More commonly seen hiding away in trees at local parks, squirrels have been known to invade Bartow properties in search of shelter, food, and water. Unfortunately, the presence of squirrels can cause significant damage to a residential home or commercial business. At Critter Control® of Polk County, our professionals are here to help restore the balance of your home or business and return any unwanted squirrels back to the wild where they belong.

3 Signs of a Squirrel Infestation

Some ways to identify a squirrel problem include:

  1. Spotting small droppings along attic floorboards

  2. Notice a foul urine smell that’s similar to ammonia

  3. Hearing scratching noises coming from your attic and walls

What Draws Squirrels to Your Property

There are many reasons a squirrel will pick your home for shelter. Squirrels can often flock to your attic to find safety from cold or rainy weather. It is also possible that they find comfort in your attic for nesting. A sure sign of this would be a pile of leaves and branches to create a safe space for breeding. Whatever the case may be if a squirrel decides to pick your home for shelter they can cause problems for both you and your family.

5 Problems Caused by Squirrels

Your unwanted guests can cause not only structural damage but outdoor damage as well. Some examples of squirrel damage include:

  1. Chewing of wooden support beams, flooring, or drywall

  2. Creating holes in walls and ceilings

  3. Electrical shortages

  4. Eating food from your garden or trees

  5. Feeding on and contaminating your birdfeeders
