Flying Squirrel Removal

Flying squirrels are nocturnal, the size of chipmunks, they keep you up at night with their constant running around and noisy nut dropping, making you want to shoot holes in your ceiling. Flying Squirrels Live in Colonies and are very community oriented. The Northern and Southern flying Squirrels are both found in the North East United States. They use communal toilets just like the otter and Raccoon.

They cause staining on the outside of your house when their toilet is in your soffits, it looks like a brown liquid running down the siding of your house. they will fill up the area and then move to another spot a few inches or feet away and fill up another area, heavily infested Flying Squirrel toilets can make the siding and areas almost black.

They can fit through a hole the size of your thumbnail and can squeeze through a linear crack the size of your pinky finger. Flying squirrels are omnivorous and will eat acorns, fruits, seeds also mice, bats, small birds, bird eggs and have been observed eating their own species from a different colony. They love to devour bee, hornet and wasp nests and eat the larvae.

Flying squirrels do not actually fly but glide from spot to spot and can be heard hitting the roof of your house at night. Flying Squirrels are very hyper and can go fast enough so that following them with your eyes can be difficult.

Flying Squirrels disperse out in small groups of 2 or more, that is why one night your house will be quiet and the following night it will sound like thunder in your ceiling the next night. They usually leave in the spring time when the weather warms up and will return in the fall but on some occasions they will return for short bursts in the summer, we have found some colonies that stay the entire summer.

Besides your attic they love to nest behind bathtubs and in wall cavities. their nests are not usually built up like red or gray squirrels that have material brought in but rather have residue from their food as the first layer of their nest. We have found nuts, mouse bones, pine cones and deceased Flying squirrels as nesting material.

Even though Flying squirrels are small they make an incredible amount of noise, most times we find large mouse populations where Flying Squirrels are inhabiting. Flying squirrels do not chew on electrical wires as much as regular squirrels but they will chew on them. The best method For Flying Squirrels is an exclusion, not trapping.
