They may seem cute and cuddly, but squirrels can be far more dangerous than some homeowners may think. Because of their convenient size and nimble hands, squirrels are the perfect candidates to break into your home unnoticed. If left alone for too long, these furry critters can cost you hundreds of dollars in damage, and may even be caring for a few babies!
There are a few ways squirrels can break into your house; all normally are results of damage. As time goes on, the outer structure of your home will weaken from weather or normal wear and tear, creating weak points squirrels can quickly chew through to get into your roof. Some of the most common places squirrels will use to get into your home include:
- Weakened soffits
- Through vent pipes
- Flimsy roof vents
