The first sign of having squirrels in the attic is often a persistent scratching. That is usually followed by a scampering noise as the squirrels come and go. They will spend much of the day looking for food, and returning to their nest. Having squirrels in the attic is a problem. Why? Because of their tendency to chew on wires, boards, insulation, cardboard. Anything they can access in the attic is fair game. They will also use the softer substances to build nests in the attic.
In the spring and fall, female squirrels often build nests in attics. They do that because it’s a safe and dry place to bear their young. Female squirrels like to pull apart insulation and cardboard to build a cozy nest for their babies. They usually situate close to their entry point. A nest full of baby squirrels in the attic makes their eviction a bit complicated.
