Helping Homeowners Remove Flying Squirrels and Repair Flying Squirrel Damage Since 1976

Because Flying squirrels are nocturnal and secretive, many people don’t realize that Flying squirrels frequently damage homes and live in attics in the Chicago Region. In other areas of the country, Flying squirrels can transmit the bacteria that causes typhus, so Flying squirrels need to be removed from attics and relocated to suitable habitat where they will not cause another nuisance situation. Our experts inspect your home and attic to determine how Flying squirrels are entering. Once entry points are determined, Flying squirrels are trapped and removed, and the entry points are sealed to prevent more Flying squirrels from entering.

  • Humanely trap Flying squirrels and relocate them so they can’t return
  • Release Flying squirrels alive at least 10 miles away from your home

What Happens When There’s a Flying Squirrel in My House?

Flying squirrels chew small holes under eaves, near flashing, and where dormers meet the roof, to gain access to attics. They are found throughout Illinois and are active year round. Flying squirrels contaminate insulation with their feces and urine, and they carry fleas. Landmark’s team of experts safely removes Flying squirrels and seals up their entry points to prevent them from returning.

Why Do I Have Flying Squirrels?

While flying squirrels usually live inside of hollow trees, they frequently occupy attics because your attic makes a great substitution for a tree cavity. Flying squirrels store food by burying acorns and seeds and bringing some of the food back to your attic. Their winter survival depends on the food they store. Because Flying squirrels do not hibernate, they rely on these scattered caches of stored food to survive.

People who live in neighborhoods with mature trees report more flying squirrel problems. Homeowners in Evanston, Kenilworth, Glencoe, Winnetka, Hinsdale, and Glenview report the most flying squirrel problems.

They’re looking for shelter. They’re looking for warmth. They’re looking at your home, no matter where you live. Find out what we can all do to coexist.
