On Monday, September 18th, Nat Geo Wild premiered a new television episode for, “When Nature Calls”, starring Keith Lange of Varmint Gone. During the episode, Keith discovered a red squirrel problem at a caller’s home. He explained how these notorious red squirrels will oftentimes enter a residence through a gap in the foundation. This is also where they will stockpile food in preparation for the upcoming winter. In addition to this, Keith discussed the squirrel removal process for successfully excluding squirrels from the inhabited home in Alaska. This process includes setting up live traps at the main points where the red squirrels are entering and storing their food. Live traps are a safe and humane option to remove any and all squirrels from the home without causing harm to the animals.

Squirrels gain access into your attic by chewing holes from the outside through eaves, soffits, gutters, trim, construction gaps or other weak areas that allow them a way into your home or business. These holes can cause severe water damage to your property in Alaska. Squirrels are also well-known for damaging attic insulation, which can lead to an increase in your heating costs. Squirrels will urinate and defecate in the insulation causing severe odors and potential health effects to your family. One of the most critical and life-threatening issues that squirrels can cause, is the gnawing on wires in your attic. Squirrels are to blame for about 30,000 house fires each year! If squirrels are not removed, you are putting your family and yourself at risk.
