Squirrels are a type of rodent and pose very similar problems to that of rats and mice. Although they usually inhabit trees and outside spaces, they are known to burrow in the roofs of properties during the colder months. During this time, they’re entirely capable of causing significant structural damage; chewing through wires, beams and pipes. This will, of course, result in up to thousands of pounds worth of damage for the property owner, which is why an uninvited squirrel guest is best removed sooner rather than later.
