Natural Raccoon Repellent Can Help You Chase Away Raccoons

You may notice squirrels in your yard on a regular basis. If they have gained entry to your home, though, you are more likely to hear them before you see them. Scurrying/scampering feet overhead, generally from the attic, are the most common sounds. Squirrels love to consume wood framework, as well as drywall and wiring, so you might hear scratching and chewing noises. The attic is the most common place to look for squirrels in your home. Squirrels breed all year, but activity is highest in the winter and summer. Their litters usually have two to four babies who stay in the nest for about three months. Squirrels will look for holes in trees to live in for protection, but if none are available, they will look for a suitable hollow in a neighboring home. The most primary criticism about these rodents is their presence in your home.

Many wild animals in Indiana have learnt to adapt to their homes and even flourish in them. Some animals, for example, have discovered that attics are ideal living spaces. Other animals find shelter beneath homes or porches. These animals invariably inflict damage. Squirrels and rats, for example, enjoy chewing on electrical wires in attics, posing a major fire threat. With their droppings and parasites, raccoons can seriously contaminate an attic. The same can be said for bat and bird colonies. We specialize in resolving Indiana's wildlife issues, from snake removal to large-scale projects such as commercial bat control.

Squirrels are rodents that belong to the rodent family. They can grow to be up to 18 inches long and weigh around a pound. Squirrels do not hibernate during the winter and remain active all year. They eat acorns and nuts that were buried in the autumn during the cold months, but they don't remember where they hid their food, contrary to popular perception. The food they find using their acute sense of smell was most likely hidden by another squirrel. The squirrel can find enough food to survive even if it is covered in snow.

What if a Skunk Got Inside My House?

Fresh bat feces, known as guano, can carry a fungus called histoplasmosis, which can cause a lung illness in humans if inhaled. Touching bat guano is likewise harmful and should be avoided at all costs! Chest ache, fever, dry cough, joint paint, and red lumps on the lower legs are all symptoms of histoplasmosis. Shortness of breath, profuse sweating, and bloody coughing are some of the more severe symptoms. Children, the elderly, and those with weakened or damaged immune systems are at higher risk. Histoplasmosis can potentially be contracted more than once.
