Seal Squirrels Out with Squirrel Proofing
Squirrels typically prefer to make their homes in tree cavities and leaf nests called dreys, however when a home is left vulnerable, squirrels will take advantage of the shelter provided by your home’s attic or chimney. Squirrels commonly enter these areas by chewing through and around dormers, eaves, and roof vents.
When squirrels chew their way into your home, they can cause severe damage in very little time and leave baseball-sized holes in soffits, vents, fans, shingles, attics, and walls. Unless these holes are repaired, new squirrels and other wildlife will continue to infest your home.
Landmark repairs the damage caused by squirrels and installs animal-proof steel products to keep squirrels from returning. We close up common entry points in dormers and eaves with materials that squirrels can’t chew through, and install durable steel vent guards to protect your home.
Squirrels have their place in nature, not in your attic.

Damage Caused by Squirrels
Baseball-sized holes aren’t the only damage squirrels cause. A squirrel’s teeth grow continuously, so they are constantly gnawing to file them down. When they choose to gnaw on your home’s roof decking, water can enter, causing more damage. Landmark’s animal-proof exclusion products protect your home from water damage caused by squirrels.
Squirrels are a fire hazard. In nature they use their sharp teeth to build nests made from twigs and grasses. Once inside your home, they’ll begin to use wiring for nesting materials, putting your safety at risk. By ensuring your home is properly animal proofed with animal-proof barriers, the squirrels remain outside where they belong, and your home stays protected.
Squirrels ruin insulation, tearing it up for nesting materials and contaminating it with their feces and urine, causing higher energy bills by decreasing your home’s energy efficiency. Landmark’s specialists will remove the contaminated insulation and replace it with clean, new insulation.
Ectoparasite Treatment for Fleas, Ticks, and Mites
Squirrels can harbor parasites like fleas, ticks and mites. After the squirrels are removed, their parasites often begin to enter the human-occupied spaces to seek a new host. Landmark applies a residual product to control fleas and other parasites left behind by squirrels.
