Once the babies are weaned, they start teething on the house’s trusses and wall studs. They also love to strip the insulation off wiring. Needless to say that these activities can destroy the structural integrity of the home. A homeowner that sees or hears signs of a squirrel infestation should call an exterminator who is an expert in Squirrel removal in Westerville OH.
