Squirrels Getting in Construction Gap
While doing a squirrel removal job in Charlotte, North Carolina, I was astonished to find such a large squirrel infestation in the attic space of a home in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte, NC.
The reason for such a large squirrel infestation was a construction gap all the way around the perimeter of the roofline. All the squirrels had to do was get into the gutters and they had complete access to the attic space and found themselves a nice winter home. The only thing blocking the squirrels getting in the attic was just the shingles. There were some areas where squirrels getting in above the garage and once the poked their furry little heads in the gap they had access into the attic loft areas.
When dealing with a construction gap of this magnitude, it makes it nearly impossible to trap the squirrels without some exclusion work. Some squirrel removal experts will use something called drip edge that will cover the gap. Another method is using galvanized steel flashing and a bend-and-cut machine to custom cut the metal so it covers gap. The bend-and-cut machine will give the metal a lip so it slides underneath the shingles and then attached to the fascia board with screws.
Many people have the misconception that squirrels just burrow right into your house, but most of the time this is not the case. If a squirrel can see into your attic then it will begin chewing to get in. If the drip edge is properly installed and the squirrel has no way of seeing into your attic, he is just going to move on to the next house on the street.
The construction gap was located where the plywood and the fascia boards do not meet flush right above the gutters. This type of problem is common in the Carolinas, especially the Piedmont Charlotte, NC area. Back in 1995, many builders in Charlotte were pressed for time because of the sheer volume of houses they were building. Many corners were cut and over time many wildlife problems have plagued homeowners.
There have been some gaps that were big enough for a raccoon to get in the attic. Many roofs were not flashed properly and over time wood fascia boards would rot making perfect entry points for wildlife animals such as squirrels, bats, birds, raccoons, flying squirrels and opossums.
Recently, during the economic downturn, many homes were built in 2007 and sat vacant for years before anybody ever moved in. Many upscale neighborhoods were built in heavily wooded areas that builders were unable to sell because of the real estate crash in Charlotte. The houses essentially became part of the habitat for wildlife.
There were several cases where the new homeowner bought a brand new house that had sat vacant and within days they heard noises in the attic. Many pest control companies saw a spike in wildlife removal for these vacant houses and some cases there were flying squirrel infestations.

Wild animals on your property can damage vegetation and structures and reduce property value.

Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their commotion and smell.
Raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds;

Mecklenburg County Wild Animal Control News, Stories, Events and Alerts
The most common bat in the Charlotte, North Carolina area is the little brown bat. Even though this bat is not endangered, we as a bat removal from attic company are required to humanely get rid of bats.
One of the most common questions that I receive as a wildlife control professional is how to get rid of bats. This is a very complex question but the best answer is to use trained professional that has extensive knowledge of bats and is licensed with the North Carolina Resources Commission as Wildlife Control Damage Agent.
Bats, as well as the bat droppings, do carry disease. The most important factor in getting rid of bats from an attic is a thorough wildlife inspection. This inspection is not just limited to looking to rid the attic of bats but also inspecting the exterior for potential bat problem areas. These areas could be bats in the gable vents, bats in the chimney, bats in the eaves and bats in the soffit.
