Flying Squirrel Removal and Control in Georgia

Along with gray squirrel control, flying squirrel control is one of our most-needed animal control services.

Flying squirrels are interesting animals. Unlike Rocky the Flying Squirrel of cartoon fame, real flying squirrels can't take off from the ground and gain altitude like a bird or a bat can, so they don't really "fly." But they do have aerodynamic "wings" formed by skin between their legs and their bodies. These wings allow them to glide for very long distances and to land accurately on buildings.

This gliding ability allows flying squirrels to get into homes and other buildings through openings that would be impossible to climb to from the ground. It also makes flying squirrel control an especially challenging animal control job.

A flying squirrel's diet consists mainly of nuts, fruits, mushrooms and other fungi, insects, slugs, snails, and bird eggs. They forage at night, mainly relying on their highly-developed sense of smell to find food. They begin hoarding food and looking for warm places to overwinter in the fall, and then become active again in the spring and summer.

 

Flying Squirrels as Pests

Flying squirrels become pests when they get into homes and other buildings. Their gnawing can cause damage to the building itself, as well as to clothing and other items stored in the building. In addition, flying squirrel droppings, shed hair, and wastes can cause safety and health problems. Flying squirrels and their parasites are vectors of typhus and other arboviral diseases.

 

Flying Squirrel Removal and Exclusion

Two baby flying squirrels in an Alpharetta, Georgia squirrel trapper's handFlying squirrel control is one of the most challenging jobs we do. Their small size, secretive habits, and ability to fly make trapping and sealing flying squirrels out of houses a real science. It's meticulous work that requires patience, skill, and attention to detail.

Flying squirrel control also requires specialized equipment such as long ladders, scaffolding, and lift trucks -- not the kind of things most people have stored in their garages.

Long story short: This is not a do-it-yourself job. The skill and knowledge required, the special equipment needed, the necessity of working high up in the air, and the inherent hazards of the work make flying squirrel removal a job for professionals.

As the region's leading animal control company, Rid-A-Critter has both the people and the equipment on hand, and our work is backed by years of experience and the best warranty in the business. Our skilled animal control experts can handle any flying squirrel control job -- no matter how big or how small. We have animal control specialists who live and work throughout North Georgia; so a local technician will respond quickly when you call us.

Finally, our flying squirrel control program goes far beyond what "flying squirrel exterminators" offer. We don't just remove flying squirrels who are already in your home. We also repair the damage that they caused and make sure that they (and other animals) don't get back in again.

If you think you may have a flying squirrel problem, please call us for a no-obligation inspection, and our recommendations for removing flying squirrels and sealing them out of your home for good.
