We completed our squirrel exclusion job in Newnan, GA yesterday. These were some of our findings and pictures of the job. You will notice from the above pictures that the squirrels had been removing the insulation from this attic. It is unknown how much as the gutters drained into a underground pipe. This was at least three handfuls of insulation in this picture. If the squirrels had their way this house would be empty of all its insulation. We located the access holes hidden behind the gutters. The squirrels had chewed the fascia board above the gutters and had free entrance to the house. These squirrels were very smart in their approach to this opening. The client had gutter guards on the gutters and the squirrel had chewed a hole in the gutter guard and ran the gutters underneath the guards. He had a protected area under the guards so that hawks could not get to him.

We removed the gutter from the house and set a positive set over two of his three holes. We used the trap body to cover the third entrance. Any squirrel remaining in the attic will exit from the house into our trap to be collected and removed from the area. While working on this set we had a grey squirrel who lived in the house run down the roof line and stop on top of the trap trying to find a way back in. We placed a trap on top of this set just for any squirrels who were not in the attic at the time. We will monitor these traps until we have no activity from inside the house and seal off the damaged holes and reinstall the gutter.
