It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a flying squirrel! This interesting little critter is a nocturnal rodent native to Tennessee. It has a soft grayish brown coat with large black eyes and a flat tail. It has a unique ability to “fly”, which is more like gliding, due to its loose skin connected at its wrist and ankle. These animals are very intriguing to say the least, but they are only something you want to experience from afar. It’s a different story when they move into your house or office space. Critter Wranglers is here to answer all your flying squirrel removal questions!  Here are some signs you might be dealing with a flying squirrel:

  • Scratching, thumping or fighting sounds coming from the attic at night
  • Urine stains and or odors at the ceiling
  • Seeing their nests or food caches (usually acorns) in the attic
  • Small tunnels through blown attic insulation
  • The activity seems more prominent on colder nights

If you suspect you are dealing with an infestation of flying squirrels, do not attempt to remove them yourself, call us today!

Once the unwanted pest has been removed, it’s essential that you allow us to animal proof the entry and exit points to ensure the animals do not return. We also clean up the mess the pest has left behind so that other wildlife is not attracted to the area.

With the use of various trapping techniques we will safely and legally remove the pest from your home and dispose of the animals in accordance to your preference as long as it abides with state/federal law.
