Charlotte Home Inspector Reveals Reason For Squirrels in the Attic

January 8th, 2012 · No Comments


Home Inspection Carolina Carolina home inspector Preston Sandlin was recently inspecting a home in Belmont NC when I noticed evidence of a squirrel infestation in the attic.  There was a nest and evidence of chewing on some of the wires and the screens.  This is why you don’t want squirrels nesting in your attic.   If they start knawing on your wires this could create a fire hazard.  The trick to getting rid of squirrels or other rodents in the attic is exclusion or stopping where they are coming in from.  Home Inspector Preston Sandlin found where the squirrels were coming in as you can see from the picture.  What the home owner need to do now is to get the squirels out and fix the area where they are coming in.
