Squirrel Removal – Bellevue TN
Squirrels in Your Attic, Crawlspace, Wall or Roof in Bellevue?
Do you hear scratching sounds in your fireplace or chimney? Or is there an awful smell in your chimney that is seeping into furniture, curtains and clothing in your home? Perhaps you hear baby squirrels?
>> Since squirrels give birth twice a year, we recommend you take a proactive stance and get the squirrel out asap before you have a squirrel infestation on your hands! Squirrels can cause major damage to your electrical wiring, which can become a fire hazard. They can also chew on wiring for electronic equipment.
Common Problems Caused by Squirrels in Homes
Squirrels are rodents, their front teeth continue to grow. To combat this, they constantly gnaw and chew to keep their teeth sharp and manageable. Some of the most common squirrel problems we’ve seen in Bellevue are:
* Chewing into attics and setting up nests;
* Fires or fire risks from chewed electrical wiring and electrical fixtures in attic;
* Destroyed insulation (by pushing it down), which will reduce your R-factor;
* Strong odor of fecal matter and urine collected in attic insulation;
* Drywall damage caused by squirrels digging holes in ceiling;
* Dead squirrels inside walls of homes or chimneys, with bad odor problems;
* Squirrels living in chimneys;
* Concern about sick or aggressive squirrels in home or on property.
* Chewed on support beams, HVAC duct lines, pipes and roof braces;
* Chewing on wood of homes, sheds, porches, etc.
Squirrel Damage Can Be Extensive
The teeth of squirrels never stop growing. So, to combat that, they need to chew. They chew electrical wires, create insulation damage, and contaminate your attic and home with their feces and urine.
Unfortunately, if you have squirrels or trees near your Bellevue area home, squirrel chewing on your home can be a problem. Squirrels don’t need much room to enter and will chew almost anything they come in contact with. Squirrels also leave a lot of waste in your insulation that can easily get you sick as well as cause damage to dry wall.

Squirrels leave urine and feces in attics, and carry parasites, making them carriers for the diseases that fleas, ticks, and more can transmit and spread. They leave lots of droppings, which can expose you to health risks such as leptospirosis or salmonella.

Why Did The Squirrel Choose Your Attic?
Most often, squirrels find their way into homes in search for a secluded, safe and quiet place to give birth. Sometimes their natural habitat has been removed or they feel they are in danger, so they look for another dry, secluded place to store their food.
Various animals find their way into our homes, but one of the most obvious signs you have a squirrel in your home is if you hear strange or unexpected noises in your attic, walls, under the floors or in your chimney early in the morning and in the evening. This is when squirrels are most active. Many animals are nocturnal, so you only hear them at night. Often, you’ll hear a ‘scratching’ noise or very quick scurrying around. Rats can also be active during the day.
