Squirrels seek a vulnerable area to enter a structure, such as your roof or garage, and often enter the attic. After the young are weaned they begin gnawing on trusses and wall studs to wear down their continually growing teeth. For some unknown reason they also like to strip wiring of its insulation.
Squirrels like to find places such as your attic or garage to live in. Abundant food and shelter commonly enable urban squirrel populations to exceed their rural counterparts. Urban and suburban landscapes provide nuts, buds, fruits, and vegetables from gardens. Compost piles, bird feeders, squirrels feeders, pet bowls, and trash containers provide an easy, replenishable food source. Once a squirrel finds such a food source it will seek a nesting site nearby. Your home or structure often becomes this site.
