Greensboro, High Point, Burlington, Winston-Salem, NC and all the surrounding areas are home to a few different types. The most common is the Grey Squirrel which people are used to seeing most every day running around. Another is the Flying Squirrel which many people never know unless they end up in your attic or home.
These are not common for people to see, because they are nocturnal and come out at night. Often times people hear them in their attic and can’t figure out where the noise is coming from or what animal is causing it. Noises in the attic very well could mean rodents are living in your attic.
Signs you have rodents in the attic:
- Sounds coming from the attic
- Scratching Noises
- Things being out of place
- Electrical wires chewed
- Insulation moved
- A nest built from outside material
March, April and May are when they begin to find safe and warm places to have their young and what better place than yi=our home and attic? It’s well protected for the most part. When a female grey is looking for a mate she could have up to 10 males chasing her around at any giving time. Climbing in and out your attic and chewing up your home. Once mommy has found the love of her life the show begins. They both are in and out your attic and begin to chew multiple entry and exit points along the roof and gutter line. Right before having babies she will run the males off so it’s just her and the babies. She will nurse and take care of them until they are old enough to start climbing around on their own. Once this happens the party is on. The babies help to destroy everything trying out their new teeth. One of their favorite things to chew are electrical wires. Electrical wires are like gummy bears. It’s easy on the teeth but poses a threat of fire hazard and risk of your home burning down. Play it safe and get them out asap.
