Squirrels typically enter a home along the roof line or through a roof vent. They like to hang out in attics, causing damage to anything in sight including – electrical wires, wood or beams. This can lead to heat loss, water damage as well as give other wildlife a way into your home. Squirrels are abundant in the Northeast Iowa & Southwest Wisconsin. They are the most common wildlife to damage homes and buildings and to nest in area homes.
