Here in the Albany area, we have an abundant population of squirrels and chipmunks. Squirrels can definitely cause trouble in your home and you want to do everything you can to prevent them from gaining access.
Remember, if you have a rodent infestation in your home, be sure to call a local pest control company in Albany that can remove any rodents from your home.
Here are some great tips you can implement right away to prevent squirrels from getting in your house.
If you are finding that squirrels are hanging around your house chewing on any of your wood or the plants, you can actually prevent them from doing so by using hot sauce, yes!!! You can either use a paintbrush or simply sprayed on topically. I thing to remember is you have to use extremely hot hot sauce do the job properly.
Naturally, squirrels are going to be looking for a way to get in your house to create a nest in the winter months. You need to invest time to look for any open holes in your foundation or around the walls of your house. You should use steel mesh around any of your whole as they are not able to chew through the mesh screens.
Another tip we recommend is to look at the trees near your house and see if they are arching over your roof. If you have branches over your roof, it makes it extremely easy for squirrels to get on your roof and find a way into your house. The solution is to cut back any branches within 6 to 8 feet of your roof so they are not able to jump on the roof.
