Squirrel Fire Safety

Squirrels are also a serious fire hazard when they break into buildings.

Squirrels often gnaw on the electrical insulation for power cables, which exposes conductors that can cause short outs and fires.  Because of this, squirrel nests inside buildings must be removed immediately.  Squirrel nests can also cause problems with noise, unpleasant odors and of course, excrement.
