Flying Squirrel Removal in the Macon Area

A trapped flying squirrel with its front paws on the cage trap door looking like it is pleading to be released.

There are two species of squirrels that commonly create headaches for homeowners in and around th Macon area. Flying squirrels are one, and gray squirrels are the other. This page deals with flying squirrels.

Flying squirrels get their name from their ability to glide for fairly long distances, with great accuracy. They can't really "fly," as in taking off from a low point and gaining altitude; but they can glide from a higher point to a lower one quite well. They use membranes stretched between their legs that allow them to glide.

Flying squirrels use their gliding abilities to get into attics, soffits, and other parts of homes that would present challenges to more earth-bound squirrels. Once they're inside, they can create quite a nuisance. In addition to the mess they make with their uring and droppings, like rodents in general, flying squirrels are gnawers who will chew on practically anything, including the home's structural wood, stored objects, and electrical and communications wiring.

In addition to physical damage and fire risks, flying squirrels can also create health risks and odor problems when they get into attics. Flying squirrels have been associated with diseases such as salmonella and leptospirosis, and their parasites may be associated with the transmission of typhus and Lyme disease.

Flying Squirrel Removal and Exclusion

Their small size, gliding skills, and ability to squeeze through very small opening make flying squirrel control very challenging. Lots of folks are amazed at how small a hole or crack a flying squirrel can get through, or at least use as a starting point to gnaw into a bigger hole.

Our goal is to remove flying squirrels from your home, seal it tight to make it "squirrel proof" to keep flying squirrels and other wildlife out, and clean up the mess they made. We also can replace contaminated insulation, if needed, and repair any damage the flying squirrels have done.

All of this work is done without using poisons. Flying squirrels are nuisance animals, not pests. There is no such thing as a "flying squirrel exterminator."

If you need help with flying squirrels or any animal problem, please call us for a professional inspection and consultation.

Flying squirrels gnawed a hole about the size of a jalapeno pepper through the shingles to get into the attic of a house in Griffin, Georgia. A wildlife-removal crew will repair the damage to animal-proof the roof, as well as trap and relocate the flying squirrels that already consider the attic their hangar.

The key to keeping flying squirrels out of a stone house in Concord, Georgia will be sealing the gap between the stones and the roof. Animal-proofing stone houses is always challenging because the irregular surface of the walls makes for numerous small gaps that can allow wildlife into the house.

Nuisance wildlife-control professionals from our Macon office are doing flying squirrel removal from the attic of a Griffin, Georgia home this morning. Flying squirrels do much the same kind of damage as gray squirrels; but their smaller size and ability to glide makes them more challenging to seal out of a house.

The droppings in the insulation were evidence of flying squirrels that need to be removed from the attic of a house in Griffin, Georgia. Flying squirrels are smaller than gray squirrels and can get into homes through very small gaps, all of which our wildlife-exclusion technicians will find and seal.

We have flying squirrel removal in Macon on the schedule today. Flying squirrels do much the same kind of damage as gray squirrels or roof rats do. The animals are actually more similar than any of them would admit. Because of their small size, sealing flying squirrels out of a house also keeps larger rodent pests and wildlife out of the attic.
