It is hard to imagine that something so small can be so destructive. However, there is always a solution for your problem. Squirrels may cause problems for homeowners by nesting in their attic, or in the exterior of the structure. They enter attics for warmth and safety; and often to birth, nest, and raise a litter. These pests are savage chewers and will gnaw their way through wooden structures to gain access to the interior. Once inside, they normally make scratching noises (usually at sunrise and sunset), leave droppings all over, and endanger all attic structures including electrical wires. This poses a fire risk.
Squirrels are known to carry numerous diseases. Some of the more common include Lyme disease, tularemia, typhus, plague, and ringworm, salmonellosis, and tularemia. These diseases are transmitted through bites, scratches, or other forms of direct contact with infected squirrels (such as contact with urine or feces).
There are several species of squirrel in the Ohio and Pennsylvania areas.
