Flying Squirrels

Flying Squirrel removal in Worcester, MassachusettsFlying squirrels are extremely small in size compared to gray squirrels and other members of the squirrel family that are typically found in the greater Worcester County area. Flying squirrels have a broad flattened tail, enlarged eyes, and a patagium — extended folds of skin from the wrist to ankle that enable the flying squirrel to glide (not really fly) 80 to 150 feet. Flying squirrels are very persistent, which is why it can be helpful to hire pest control professionals such as Ford’s Hometown Services to not only remove families of nuisance flying squirrels but who also specialize in exclusion. Detailed exclusion work will prevent and keep future family groups of flying squirrels from reentering your home.

It’s very common for flying squirrels to nest in attics or walls of residential homes or unoccupied structures. Flying squirrel problems are often discovered by home owners when they hear bird-like chirps or scratching from inside the structure. Once they enter your attic or other spaces, flying squirrels will happily settle in and make it their new home. Once flying squirrels have established themselves in these confined areas, they will use these spaces to sleep, urinate/defecate and eat. Flying squirrels have a tendency to be very destructive, and despite their small size, they can cause extensive damage within your home. Your Ford’s Hometown Services pest control technician will assess the situation and confirm whether or not a family of nuisance flying squirrels has taken up residency within your home. Your technician will also provide you with a strategy to eliminate Flying squirrels and provide you with a plan of prevention to ensure they do not return. This may include securing the flying squirrels entry points to your home or business. The sooner these issues are handled and addressed by a flying squirrel removal expert at Ford’s Hometown Services the less damage they will cause and lower the overall cost.
