Atlanta’s new streetcars aren’t taking passengers yet because the drivers are going through their training period. But they’re now a daily presence in Atlanta street traffic. What a wonderful sight!

Squirrels are cute little creatures that seem to have it made as they run along the tree branches and leap from branch to branch, gathering nuts for the winter. The only problem with the furry little creatures is that they also like to take up residence in your attic, and they can do so very easily by prying themselves through the smallest of openings.
A crack in the eaves, vents in gables, even wire mesh can be opened by these industrious creatures, and soon you have the whole family living very comfortably at your expense.
When the squirrels get inside, they tend to scratch all of the time, and even the heaviest of sleepers have been known to be kept awake at night by their activity. They will scrape the walls and ceilings, and can be plenty annoying to everyone.
Squirrels give birth to babies in the spring or in the fall, and in some cases during both times. Your attic is the perfect place for them to raise a family, and of course, that is why they came in the first place.
Squirrels are the major cause of electrical fires in homes simply because they like to chew on anything, and that includes your electrical wiring inside of the house.
If you have any PVC pipes running though your attic, they also enjoy chewing on them until suddenly, without warning you have a major leak in your ceiling. The squirrels urinate and defecate often and everywhere, which brings parasites and disease into your home.
In Atlanta, Georgia there aren’t any more squirrels than anywhere else, but residents do appreciate Atlanta squirrel removal when it is needed.
A good Atlanta squirrel removal company will be able to trap the little critters and remove them from your attic, and then relocate them. Once the squirrels are gone from your home, it will have to be made “squirrel-proof” so that they, or their neighbors don’t come back.
Understand that squirrels and other forms of wildlife are only acting out of their instincts, but that they are very persistent and good at what they do. When you have a professional wildlife removal company handle the situation, you will have the best solution to the problem.
The professional critter removal experts can remove squirrels in Atlanta, and will know how to remove the squirrels safely and seal up your home so that the squirrels will never be able to return.
