The most common is the Grey Squirrel which people are used to seeing most every day running around. Another is the Flying Squirrel which most people never see unless the squirrels end up in your attic or better yet in your home. Flying squirrels are not common for people to see, because they are nocturnal and come out at night.

Noises in the attic very well could mean squirrels are living in your attic.

All these could be signs that squirrels are in the attic. March, April and May are when squirrels begin to find safe and warm places to have their young and what better place than a squirrel in an attic. It’s warm and well protected for the most part. When a female grey squirrel is looking for a mate she could have up to 10 male squirrels chasing her around at any giving time, climbing in and out your attic and squirrels chewing up your home. Once mommy squirrel has found the love of her life the show begins. They both are in and out your home. Once on the inside squirrels will then begin to chew multiple entry and exit points along the roof and gutter line. Right before mommy squirrel has her babies she will run the male squirrel off so it’s just her and her babies. She will nurse and take care of the baby squirrels until they are old enough to start climbing around on their own. Once this happens the squirrel party is on. Baby squirrels begin to chew up everything trying out their new squirrel teeth. One of their favorite things to chew are electrical wires. Electrical wires to baby squirrels are like gummy bears. It’s easy on the teeth of the new baby squirrels. Problems with squirrels chewing up electrical wires poses a threat and risk of your home burning down. Play it safe and get the squirrels removed asap.
