E&G Pest Solutions Can Get Rid of and Prevent Squirrels At Your Home
What squirrels are in New Jersey and Pennsylvania?
Squirrels are very common pests that homeowners in New Jersey and Pennsylvania have to deal with each year. They start to become a problem when they enter homes in the fall and throughout the winter to build nests in attics. However, squirrels can build nests inside of an attic or soffit at any time of the year. If you’re like most homeowners, the attic is more for storage than a heavily trafficked area such as your living room. They live in attics where they are less likely to be disturbed and have shelter from the elements. A safe place to build a nest is one of the main reasons that a quiet, warm attic is ideal for squirrels activity. Squirrels run around during the day so if you have squirrels in your attic, you’ll hear them moving around and going in and out of the access point they created. They can also cause substantial damage to your home by gnawing holes, chewing wires and contaminating surfaces with their urine and feces. The number of squirrels nesting in a structure may be as few as one or two, but often as many as 4-7 squirrels are present. Although fall and winter are the most common times for squirrels to nest in homes, they can nest at any time of year.

E&G Pest Solutions Exclusion Service
If you experience recurring problems with mice, squirrels, flying squirrels, or other rodents getting into your house, a permanent (and highly recommended) solution is available from E&G Pest Solutions . Since squirrels have the capability to destroy homes, older home structures often have many gaps that they find very attractive, and this is how they enter your home.
When our Exclusion Experts visit your home, they will perform a thorough inspection to identify the rodent and squirrel issues at your home and then create a customized plan to remove them and keep them out.
We will exclude these pests from entering your home in the future. Our dedicated Exclusion Experts will conduct trapping and wire mesh installation for low-lying areas. They will also perform sealing, capping, and metal flashing installations on the roof and in the crawlspace. Additional programs such as GutterLock are available for even more protection.
