Get Rid of Flying Squirrels

Did you know flying squirrels cannot actually fly? They are referred to as such because of the skin between their front and back limbs. Despite being able to fly, these creatures are actually quite similar to regular squirrels. However, flying squirrels tend to be nocturnal critters who live primarily off fruit, insects, and seeds. Flying squirrels build nests in trees to hold their young.

Flying squirrels are the smallest species of squirrel. They possess light brown fur, dark stripes on their sides, and light cream-colored fur on their stomachs. Their small and round ears and big eyes lend to a charming appearance. When flying squirrels jump from tree branches, they extend their limbs and let their skin webs catch the breeze. Flying squirrels also utilize their tails to steer while gliding. They don’t typically grow longer than around 10 inches.


Like other squirrels, flying squirrels predominantly eat nuts, berries and fruit, which are all available in their trees. When they crave carnivorous fare, they can feed on baby bird eggs, insects and even small animals.


Wooded areas across the continent are home to flying squirrels. These rodents prefer warm and cozy areas like hollow trees, bird boxes and abandoned birds’ nests. They often congregate in big colonies that will nest together to stay warm.




Finding flying squirrels in your Dallas yard is not an uncommon sight, but many property owners don’t know they’re there. Because of their nocturnal tendencies, flying squirrels aren’t often seen by people. The issue arises once the flying squirrel gets into the attic or other area of the home and starts causing damage.



Flying squirrel colonies usually number around a dozen. That’s a lot of damage at one time. Feces and urine can quickly accumulate near nests and lead to unpleasant odors and damage to the structure. Like their rodent relatives, flying squirrels are notorious for chewing constantly, which weakens wooden support beams and wiring. Flying squirrels also carry ticks, fleas, mites and diseases which are easily transmitted to humans.



In order to prevent flying squirrels from creating nests inside Dallas attics, it’s vital to cover exterior entry points with screens, mesh or caulk. Common flying squirrel entry points include chimneys, windows, gaps near pipes, vents and more. Another step to discouraging flying squirrels from your Dallas property can include removing bird houses and taking down trees where necessary.
