Appearance: Squirrels are small to medium size rodents with bushy tails that can commonly be found outdoors, climbing trees and foraging food
Feeds On: berries, nuts, vegetation, seeds, insects and occasionally small animals including rats and birds
Nests: Squirrels nesting in homes, attics and garages are a common occurrence. A squirrel will typically gain entry into your home by chewing through siding, climbing through vents, or entering the home through a crawlspace opening. They will usually build a nest and begin to store food.
Concerns: If a squirrel decides to make your attic or garage its new home, it can cause substantial damage by chewing through your home's insulation and wiring. If you have a garden or lawn, squirrels can eat through your vegetation and dig holes in your grass
