Squirrel Damage:

Like most rodents, squirrels are very aggressive chewers. Squirrels will chew through wood, enlarging even the tiniest of openings, allowing entry. They chew through vinyl siding, insect screening, gabled vents, and shingles. A common reason for squirrel chewing is to gain attic and wall access. They want in for nesting and raising young.

Squirrels target homes because of safety from predators and warmth. Once inside, squirrels begin collecting nesting material such as leaves, sticks and insulation. Nest materials retain odor from the accumulation of droppings and urine.

Sometimes squirrels fall down chimneys. Then they have access to living spaces. Damage is done to electrical and phone lines through chewing. This combination with nesting material, poses real fire hazard.
