How to Get Rid of Ground Squirrels & Their Damage to Lawns & Foundations in Avon, CO

The Ground Squirrel loves to live, nest and breed inside the attics of Colorado homes. Squirrels have two litters of young per year, in late summer and late winter, so people often notice the scurrying of young squirrels in the attic in September or March. Squirrels are rodents, who love to chew on the woodwork of your home, and the electrical wiring inside your attic. Our wildlife technicians at RAM Pest Control are experts at trapping and removal, plus total “squirrel-proofing” of your house.

Ground Squirrel Habitat & Diet

Ground squirrels live in a system of burrows that they utilize for shelter and storage. In Colorado, ground squirrels can often be found under houses and occasionally even inside the premises though this is rare. Ground squirrels feed on a variety of foods, like nuts, fruit and even the seeds in your bird feeder. The squirrel will store his nuts in holes he dug into the ground. Squirrels prefer small cavities to hide and reside in, when these are unavailable; they will often find ways into your home and hide out in the attic. RAM Pest Control technicians will perform a thorough inspection of your home to determine where the squirrels gained access into your home and pinpoint their nest and the exact location they are residing.

Ground Squirrel Holes & Damage to Foundation

The system of burrows that ground squirrels create can cause many problems for homeowners. Worse than creating an unkempt yard, the holes made by ground squirrels can be a tripping hazard for children and pets. When ground squirrels are under a house, their digging undermines foundations which can result in costly repairs.
