Flying Squirrel Removal in the Macon Area

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 through the weather seal and the window trim to get into a house in Cordele, Georgia. Flying squirrel removal and exclusion is challenging because they're very small animals who can fly. On the bright side, sealing flying squirrels out of a house will also prevent other wildlife from getting in.

Today our Macon-area wildlife management experts are following up after a handyman who failed to exclude flying squirrels from the attic of a house in Valdosta, Georgia. We're closing up all the gaps that he missed to keep the animals out of the house, and removing and relocating the existing flying squirrels from the attic.

Flying squirrels gnawed a hole about the size of a small egg through the roof flashing to get into the attic of a house in Perry, Georgia. Flying squirrel removal and exclusion can be challenging because of their small size and ability to fly. On the bright side, however, sealing flying squirrels out of a house will also keep larger nuisance wildlife out of the attic.
