Flying squirrels in the attic?

Posted at December 9, 2013 | By : | Categories : Uncategorized | 0 Comment

Flying squirrels are the most common call during the winter months here in the Atlanta area.  Flying squirrels are nocturnal animals and most homeowners never see one unless they fall down a chimney or chew through the drywall and fall into the living space of a home.  Most customers complain of the sound of animals literally “bowling” with acorns in their attics while they are trying to sleep!  Flying squirrels store nuts for the cold winter months in the safety of your attic as well as it’s insulation and warmth.  The most common entry points for flying squirrels are the highest peaks of your roof and roofline area.  Flying squirrels love the warm nooks of tray ceilings above master bedrooms and bathrooms.  Flying squirrels are small enough to fit in the area known as a “construction gap”, the area left open behind the gutter right beneath the shingles.  Other areas they can enter are louver vents, exhaust vents and holes in the fascia or soffit.
