Squirrels can be adorable creatures. It can be fun to watch them run around with acorns in their cheeks. But squirrels in your attic or basement are an entirely different matter.
In these instances, the squirrel poses a severe threat to your property. Squirrels are known to chew wood, which can include exterior trim boards, siding, and other expensive and highly visible parts of your house. The longer squirrels are inside of an attic, the more damage they will cause.
We can help! At ACME Pest Control, we can trap the squirrel(s) that are wreaking havoc on your property. We will capture the squirrel(s) safely and humanely. Complete the form below to schedule our squirrel control services.

Squirrels are members of the family Sciuridae, a family that includes small or medium-size rodents. The squirrel family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots, flying squirrels, and prairie dogs, amongst other rodents.
Squirrels are incredibly intelligent rodents. They are known to put on elaborate bogus food burying displays to deceive onlookers. The fake burials trick potential thieves, such as other squirrels or birds, into thinking that they have stored their food stock there. Any observers planning on taking the stash will then focus on the bogus burial site, allowing the squirrel to bury the real stash elsewhere safely.
Squirrels don’t just pose a property damage threat. Squirrels are known to carry numerous diseases, though only a few are dangerous to humans. Some of the more common include tularemia, typhus, plague, and ringworm. Such infections are transmitted through bites or other forms of direct contact with infected squirrels.
So, if you start to hear ramblings in your attic late at night or early in the morning, it’s probably not a ghost. It’s more likely a squirrel. Don’t want to go up and look for yourself?
Don’t worry! We can help! Call ACME Pest Control for our squirrel control services and we’ll come and inspect your attic and the exterior of the house to check for holes or places where a squirrel may have snuck in.
