Squirrels multiply twice a year, giving birth to between 6 and 8 kittens and can live up to six years. They can find attics and lofts as attractive places to nest which can be a real problem for home owners. They can tear up loft insulation to use as bedding and also chew timbers, stored items and electrical wiring. These are just some of the reasons why squirrels can be a nuisance. If you have problems with squirrels, contact the experts at Apest Control for squirrel control.
