Sharing Our Living Space with Wildlife

 

SQUIRRELS

  • To keep squirrels out of attics and/or buildings, screen and block all exterior accesses. See checklist for details.
  • Before screening or blocking exit points, ensure that all animals, especially young have left. Do a visual check of the attic with a flashlight.
  • Trim trees away from the roof to deter access onto the building.
  • The gray squirrel can damage a vegetable garden. If practical, protect plants with chicken wire or other sturdy fabric.
