Types of Squirrels
Did you know that squirrels are a type of rodent? Three types of squirrels are common in Alabama: gray squirrels, fox squirrels, and southern flying squirrels. The most common type of squirrel is the gray squirrel, and this is the species that is most likely to cause you problems at your home or commercial property. Fox squirrels are the largest and have rust or orange-colored coat, similar to a fox. Gray squirrels are gray with a white belly and can weigh up to 1.5 pounds. The southern flying squirrel is small, nocturnal, and prefers living in heavily wooded areas.
Squirrels are responsible for many problems, including:
- Nesting in attics and crawl spaces
- Damaging and contaminating insulation
- Spreading disease, including airborne diseases
- Making a mess all over your property
- Gnawing on personal property, electrical systems, and more
Squirrels tend to nest up in trees, but problems arise when they decide to create their nests in your attic or crawlspace. If you hear scurrying at night, see signs of squirrels nesting in your property, or have an overabundance of squirrels on your property, we can help.
Signs You Have Squirrel Problems
Squirrels are pretty harmless, right? Well, yes and no. Squirrels aren't aggressive but, they can be quite a nuisance to you and your home. But, how do you know if these pesky pests are causing damage to your home? Below we have 3 signs to look for in order to tell if you have squirrel problems or not.
A pretty clear sign is if you notice small droppings inside of your garage or even in your attic. It can be tough to figure out if they are squirrel droppings or maybe rat droppings, regardless, if you notice this contact us right away for the help you need.
Foul Smells -
If you have a squirrel infestation, it's most likely that some of those squirrels aren't getting back out of your home. If you start to notice a foul smell, it could be a dead squirrel in your walls or underneath your house.
Damage Around Your Home -
Another sign of squirrel problems is if you notice that their are teeth marks on the outside walls of your home or even along the roofline. It's much easier to notice squirrel damage around the exterior of your home. Call us today if you notice those pesky teeth marks.

“I called several companies for quotes and DixieLand was extremely reasonable. They removed a raccoon and it's babies from a wall in a townhouse. All the animals were treated humanely and the babies were given to someone to raise them (who knew?!).”- Leigh P.
“I highly recommend David and his staff. We were working on a house that was infested with bats and numerous other companies failed before we got with DixieLand. They were prompt and professional, not to mention the price was very fair.”- Lee W.
“Our family used DixieLand for bat trapping and repairs, and the service was fast and very friendly. They arrived on time for appointments and did the job efficiently! Will most definitely use them again if we need any more help later on down the line!!”- Savannah D.
