Flying Squirrel Exclusion Services
Any species of squirrel that is native to our area can make its way into your home, but one of the trickiest to prevent from doing so are flying squirrels. The Southern Flying Squirrel is by far the most commonly found species of flying squirrel found in Maryland, and they can be a real nuisance if they get in your home.
At K.P. Wildlife Control, we’ve removed and excluded a lot of flying squirrels from Catonsville, Timonium, Parkville, Severna Park, Glen Burnie, and many areas of Maryland. If you’re having issues with some flying squirrels in your home, getting into contact with a professional Maryland flying squirrel exclusion service provider.
Flying Squirrels Bring With Them Potential Health Hazards
Having practically any wild animal in your Maryland home can bring with it the potential for health hazards, and flying squirrels are no exception. If you actually see a flying squirrel in your home, you should be sure to steer clear of it. When they feel threatened, flying squirrels can lash out and attack, and their bites and scratches hurt, and can cause infections. Additionally, if they’re nesting in your home, they’re also going to be defecating, which is not good for the air quality in your Maryland home.
Get to Know the Southern Flying Squirrel
The Southern Flying Squirrel isn’t just the most common flying squirrel found in Maryland, but it’s also the smallest tree squirrel found in Maryland. Their average length is only between nine and ten inches, and average weight is between two and four ounces. Their small size allows them to enter into homes through even the smallest of holes. Naturally, they’ll build their nests in hardwood trees like oaks, hickories and walnuts. Each year more and more trees are cut down, which forces flying squirrels to look for other places to build their nests, places like houses.
How to Exclude Flying Squirrels from Your Maryland Home
If a squirrel is already in your home, you’ll have to have it removed, but if your home is squirrel-free, you’ll want to keep it that way. In order to prevent flying squirrels from entering your home, you’ll need to have some exclusion equipment installed by a professional and experienced wildlife exclusion service provider. A wildlife removal technician will perform a thorough inspection of your home, looking for any and all entry points. They will then develop an exclusionary plan capable of closing or screening in any entry points that flying squirrels could use.
