About Pest Animal Removal Boulder and Our Services:
Flying squirrels may look adorable and cuddly but you still don’t want them near your Boulder property. They may not be as destructive as the other types of squirrels but they have been linked to different health risks. They can also lead to various problems if their presence remains undetected. You will need to be familiar with the common sign of their infestation to avoid costly repairs and emergency visit to hospitals.
Signs of Active Colorado Flying Squirrel Infestation
For those who lack the experience, it can be challenging to determine the difference between flying squirrel infestations to the other types of squirrels. The only way to be sure is through visual sightings. Both of them will have similar behaviors and may have health risks and damages associated with their presence. Here are some of the signs of an active infestation of flying squirrel.
It is relatively common for the Boulder flying squirrels to be spotted on trees compared to other species of squirrels. They also have a unique membrane that you won’t find in grey and ground squirrels. The population of their colony will be bigger than the others. They have a smaller size than other species. Since they are nocturnal species, it would be difficult to encounter them. In case you are hearing noises in your attic at night, you will be able to find out the source of the strange noises by inspecting your attic.
Another way to determine their presence is through the damages that your house has incurred. For instance, you may notice some urine and dropping marks on the insulation in your attic. There should also be visible claw and teeth marks. If your house is close to a tree and you have a small hole that cannot be used by the ground or grey squirrel, then it is possible that you have a flying squirrel. You should also listen to the scurrying and scampering noise that they create at night.
If there are elements that will attract the attention of flying squirrels in your yard, do not be surprised that you will encounter them in your attic. For instance, trees that are located close to the roof will make is easier for the creature to glide on the roof. Fallen fruits and nuts will also be major attractants. Any possible food sources such as pet food that you will leave at night will also invite them. In the event that you noticed that the fruits or pet food has been missing, then a flying squirrel can possibly be the culprit.
After you determine that you indeed have a Boulder flying squirrel problem, you will need to get rid of them. Removal will be effective especially if it is conducted appropriately. You may use a live trap and use bait that the flying squirrel naturally eats. Once you capture them, you need to know if releasing them away from your property will be permitted under the local legislation. You should also seal the entry points to prevent them from returning to your attic.
