Squirrels May Carry Diseases
Truth be told, squirrels would run away from humans when they can. Since you don’t have to worry about squirrel bites and attacks, then you think it’s fine to have them stick around. But there are cases when squirrels get in contact with humans and cause serious diseases and illnesses. And of course, getting any of these diseases carried by squirrels mean spending a whole lot of money for medical care. Worse, some of these diseases are even life threatening.
Here are some diseases that squirrels may potentially carry:
- Lyme Disease
While it’s not likely for a squirrel to bite you and cause rabies infection, you have to realize that they’re still wild animals. They can attack when you least expect it. So no matter how adorable a squirrel may be, it is highly recommended you stay away from it, don’t attempt to pet it, and have them removed by professionals right away.
Squirrels Can Cause Property Damage
We’ve seen and heard of numerous serious property damages brought about by squirrels. These critters like chewing through things around the household from wooden beams to walls to blocks and more. Small holes caused by squirrels chewing may again, seem harmless, but repairs can get costly when there’s just too much damage caused already, especially if these holes have already affected the overall look and durability of your home.
There are also cases when squirrels enter homes and get trapped beneath walls, ceilings and vents. Soon enough, they die then cause a very foul odor spreading throughout your home. Furthermore, just like rats and raccoons, squirrels may chew on wires. If this happens, not only will damage be done to your electrical wiring, these may also cause house fires.
