Squirrel Noises - If you are hearing scampering and scurrying noises during the day and they are coming from your attic, it's most likely coming from Eastern Gray Squirrels. If you are hearing noises coming from the attic at night, it could be coming from flying squirrels, mice, rats, bats, opossums, or even raccoons in the attic. Gray squirrels are most active at dawn and dusk and these are typically the times that you will hear these rodents in the attic. If you see a hole in the fascia board, or soffits of your roof that is about the size of a baseball, this is evidence of squirrels. Squirrels also enter homes via gable vents, vents on the roof and attic exhaust fans. If you see squirrels on the roof of your Long Island home, you can be certain that these are the critters that you are hearing in your attic. Although squirrels most commonly make their homes in attics, they will also reside in ceilings, between floors, in walls, in chimneys and under solar panels on the roof of your Long Island, New York home. Once a female squirrel has entered your home, she will make a nest using insulation in the attic and give birth to four to six squirrel pups in the Spring. This squirrel will give birth again in the Fall to another litter of squirrel pups. While in the attic, these rodents will urinate and deficate everywhere. Squirrels in the attic will gnaw on everything including wooden beams, central air conditioning ducts, pvc plumbing lines and electrical wires. Squirrels chewing on electrical wires results in about 30,000 home fires each year, causing millions of dollars in damage.
