Squirrels may attack if they feel threatened. Left undisturbed, they can cause damage to homes and allow entrance to other insects that feed off the waste created by these animals. Let a professional safely remove these pests from your home. Home Hardware Pest Control uses special controls and specialized equipment to effectively remove these pests from your space.

Food source varies by season. In Spring and Summer, squirrels eat buds, seeds, nuts and acorns. In Fall and winter, tree bark and fungi. Squirrels may also raid bird feeders, dig up plants or eat eggs from a bird nest.


Female squirrels will readily attack if they feel that they or their nest is in danger. Some varieties of squirrel can leap more than 20 feet and move very quickly if they feel threatened.
