We have many types of squirrels in Michigan. The top two common squirrels we move or relocate are:

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

Red Squirrel Removal

Red squirrels, also known as pine squirrels, are the most common nuisance squirrel we have in Michigan.  Red squirrels often chew into homes to store food and give birth to their young.  If you have pine trees or a walnut tree in close proximity to your home you should always keep an ear out for red squirrels chewing into your home.  It has been shown that red squirrels can have up to two litters a year with litter sizes ranging from one to five young.  Most people do not notice a new squirrel infestation until the young squirrels become mobile and cause a lot of commotion.

Common areas that red squirrels will enter homes include:

  • Soffits – roof connections
  • Ridge vents
  • Gable vents
  • Outside corner posts
  • Garage doors
  • Foundations
  • Any damaged building materials
