Squirrel Damage from Squirrels in Attics, Squirrel Burrowing and Squirrels in Trees.

Three common complaints associated with squirrels are their tendency to cause damage in attics, damage to landscaping, and damage to forests and orchards. Tree squirrels do the most damage in attics, including destroying attic insulation, chewing through wires and chewing holes on the exterior of the home in order to gain entry. Once in the attic, squirrels will build nests for their litters. Several types of squirrels can cause damage to landscaping as they burrow in yards and dig up food, like nuts and freshly planted seeds. Squirrels will also steal food right out of your bird feeders! Squirrels are also known to chew on the bark, nuts and fruit of trees, which can significantly interfere with the reseeding process.

No matter what type of squirrel damage you are experiencing, Critter Control of Westland can help develop effective solutions for squirrel removal. We can also repair squirrel damage within your home or attic. Contact us today for more information on squirrel damage and how to get rid of squirrels.

How To Identify Squirrels Causing Damage To Your Home.


Our technicians will:

  • Remove squirrels: If you've found squirrels in your attic, crawl space, garage or someplace else on your property, our technicians will carefully remove them. Because squirrels can carry disease and are capable of causing injury when handled, squirrel removal and squirrel trapping should be left to professionals.
  • Exclude squirrels: Once all squirrels are safely removed from your property, the next step is to make sure they don't return. We will conduct a thorough inspection of your crawl space, attic or other area of concern to determine how squirrels got in or may enter in the future. Our technicians will then seal all entry points to exclude squirrels. Critter Control staff can also complete inspections as a preventative measure if you've never had a problem but want to avoid one.
  • Clean up and repair damage: Squirrel colonies can cause major damage in your attic, garage or crawl space. They also frequently leave large amounts of waste and debris. Our technicians can clean and disinfect the problem area, repair any damage and resolve other problems caused by the squirrels.
