Willow Grove wildlife removal tip of the month:
How do you know if you have flying squirrels in your attic?
Flying squirrels are very common. They can live happily in the urban areas as well as wooded areas; and so are our homes where they could spend time very happily. As flying squirrels are good in climbing and gliding, the attic of the home is their favorite place where they could stay. Therefore the removal of this tiny creature is a must. But before removing you have to be confirm about their presence. Flying squirrels can damage your home and in addition they can carry a host of parasites as well as diseases that may be transmitted to humans. Here are some tell-tale signs that confirm the existence of this animal in your attic:
Flying squirrels are nocturnal, means that they are active in night and sleep in the morning. Therefore you can hear their noise in the night when there is silence everywhere. Their sounds can be heard easily from the attic as they are not so small as mice and rats. Sounds of scampering are commonly heard by the owners who claim flying squirrels in their attic.
Take a piece of cardboard and sprinkle some flour or powder on it. Now place the cardboard near the attic where you suspect the presence of flying squirrels. You will get the print of their paws that will confirm their presence. These tracks are very much resembling with the rabbit tracks. But you must know that the rear paw of flying squirrel has 5 toes where as its front paw has only 4 toes.
For a common man the rodent poop identification is usually not an easy task. Therefore a description may be very helpful in determining the pest in the home. Droppings of the flying squirrels are oblong in the shape and are rounded on ends. These are about 3/8” to 1/2 long. Fresh droppings are dark brown in color and get lighter with the passage of time. The older droppings show that the issue of flying squirrels is not recent.
As the flying squirrels love to live and glide on trees they make their nests on the trees as well. Their nests are big and messy. The nests are loosely buildup of different materials such as papers, wood, straws twigs, leaves, moss, vine, bits of bark etc. The nests are the clear sign of this little creature’s presence.
