Fox Squirrel Removal

Fox squirrels are the largest squirrel in North America.  Fox squirrels are often mistaken for the American red squirrel or the eastern grey squirrel due to the animals co existing.   Fox squirrels are very tolerant of humans and thrive in urban settings.  They usually eat natural foods; however, in urban environments they will eat just about anything.  I have seen them chew holes into trash cans and climb into dumpsters for food.  Fox squirrels will chew into homes and businesses on occasion but not nearly as much as red squirrels.  Female fox squirrels will have two litters per year, usually in the spring and the fall.  Fox squirrels are not territorial like the red squirrel and often are chased away by red squirrels.

Several indications that you have a fox squirrel in your home include:

  • A softball sized hole chewed into your home
  • Heavy running in the attic
  • Chattering in your attic
  • Nut chewing in your attic
  • Scratches on a post or something similar leading to your roof
  • Insulation dragged out of your attic
