In lieu of trees, squirrels sometimes take shelter in attics or garages. Warm attics and garages are also an attractive alternative during cold winters. In their attempt to enter your home or business, squirrels can cause significant damage to your roof, which could cost hundreds of dollars to fix. They can chew through electrical wires and wood up to an inch thick; giving them enough room to enter through your roof to burrow in the insulation
Tips for Prevention
There are a few steps you can take to prevent squirrels from becoming an issue:
Avoid having trees that may attract squirrels, such as oak or hickory
If you do have trees, put a tree collar on it to keep squirrels off of it
Remove bird feeders to take away a source of food for squirrels
Remove tree limbs that squirrels may use to jump onto the roof, within 8-10 feet of the house
