Squirrels Removal From Gable Vent in Charlotte
We Recently removed squirrels from an attic gable vent in Charlotte, North Carolina. The home was over a hundred years old and due long history of squirrels nesting in the attic this proved to be a very specialized job. When we are squirrels from an attic, we make it a priority to preserve the squirrels and exclude them humanely as possible. The timing of the job also was an issue because there was a litter of baby squirrels that were approximately 5 weeks old. Once the baby squirrels are able to follow their mother a one way door can be installed.
