Squirrels are one of the most common rodents found in our backyard. With adorable features to boast, no individual would be able to believe that they can be a total menace. They have small bodies, with proportionately larger fluffy tails and wide eyes. They are present in varied colors in many parts of the globe. They have a nibbling tendency and bite into tough materials. Squirrels are omnivores by nature and feed on both plants and small animals. They are gatherers by nature and usually accumulate their edibles, before the harsh winter approaches. Squirrels are conventionally known to live on tree branches and hollows, building their nests there, but with the oncoming winters, they try to find warm shelters for themselves. Similar to most of the rodents, they can disrupt the peace of a household and can be troublesome for the residing individuals. Usually, squirrels turn into household pests, when they become tenacious to find shelter in your property during the cold weather.
