One of the most common mammals found in the Florida state is the squirrel. They appear to be cute and adorable sometimes; however, one must understand that squirrels are considered to be wild animals. They should not be taken in as pets. You shouldn’t even attempt to touch or pet them no matter how harmless they seem to be. In fact, when you see a squirrel on your property, it is highly recommended for you to call for squirrel removal service.
Generally speaking, squirrels are harmless. They are not known to attack humans unless provoked. If you leave them alone, they will most likely leave you alone too. However, not the same can be said when it comes to your pets and the structure of your property. We’ve seen so much damage done by squirrels on houses, landscaped gardens and more.
If you are still unconvinced, here are some reasons for you to consider squirrel removal immediately:
- As mentioned, squirrels are wild animals. They can be very unpredictable. They are not trained to answer to the demands of humans. Perhaps scaring them away might work but there’s no guarantee they would never come back especially when they find your property as a great shelter or food source.
- Squirrels are not known to attack humans. However, they can certainly attack, scratch, and even bite when they feel threatened. Female squirrels protecting their babies can be even more dangerous when they feel like their young is at risk.
- Squirrels are great chewers. Sure you can leave the doors and windows closed but they can definitely find their way in. They’ll chew and damage your property with their fairly strong teeth.
- Aside from causing damage through chewing, squirrels would leave feces and urine behind. When they manage to find their way indoors, the waste they leave can certainly be hazardous.
- Most squirrels carry parasites with them like ticks and fleas. If you have pets and children at home, these parasites can be potentially dangerous.
