We have the skills and equipment to effectively and humanely address squirrel problems of any size (whether live or dead).

Squirrels in the Walls?

These fluffy-tailed critters are infamous climbers and can easily get into homes in neighborhoods, by way of overhanging tree branches and by scampering across power lines. These clever rodents are talented at finding holes through which to enter, and as avid chewers, are determined to chew through tough material in order to gain entry. Squirrels often take up residence in wall voids, because they’re isolated and warm.

As soon as a squirrel has established a nest, they will begin to leave signs of their presence, including feces, which can cause unbearable odors. Other indications of their presence includes vocalizations such as squeaking, and noises of movement like scratching or chewing. If a squirrel dies inside your wall, you will need to call a professional squirrel control team to remove the carcass and deodorize your home.

Though they’re so common outdoors that some don’t even consider them to be home invaders, squirrels can be a serious threat to the safety inside your home. Piles of squirrel feces can spread various diseases such as salmonellosis and leptospirosis.

Squirrels may also choose to make their nest in another cozy area of your home—your attic.

Tree squirrels are typically 1–2 feet long and have big, bushy tails that act as a balancer while they climb and jump across treetops. Their fur can be black, gray, brown, or rusty red. Ground squirrels are traditionally red–smoky gray in color and often show striped or spotted patterns. Ground squirrel tails are significantly shorter/thinner than tree squirrels’. Flying squirrels are tan/gray with lighter bellies and black stripes along their sides.


Tree squirrels and flying squirrels are primarily herbivores, enjoying nuts, seeds, grasses, roots, and other plant materials, but flying squirrels have been known to also eat birds, eggs, and insects. Squirrels’ omnivorous nature leads them to find food sources wherever they are available, often targeting bird feeders and garbage.


Tree squirrels and flying squirrels are most comfortable nesting in wooded regions with lots of trees and ground cover. Their nests are made of leaves and small twigs in high areas of trees or inside tree holes. Ground squirrels, as their name suggests, are often found nesting in open areas like meadows. They dig tunnels and burrows to live in.




Each type of squirrel has been known to get into Dallas yards and homes alike. Ground squirrels will often make their way onto lawns due to hunger, and tree squirrels primarily spend time in wooded areas. Certain areas of homes are perfect nesting spots for tree squirrels and flying squirrels, like attics and chimneys.



Ground squirrels are responsible for significant crop destruction in pastures, often negatively impacting the livestock’s food source. Squirrel burrowing habits can compromise the soil, causing holes in the yard and weakening slopes or other embankments. The primary issue with tree squirrels is their penchant for stealing food from bird feeders, chasing out local songbirds. Tree squirrels also cause damage to your Dallas chimney or attic. Flying squirrels tend to get into attics and present hazards by way of accumulation of feces and urine. All squirrel species are common carriers of ticks, mites and several other types of parasites.



There are some DIY steps you can take to keep squirrels out of your yard. Yard cleanup and maintenance such as trimming tree branches, getting rid of potential squirrel food sources and protecting your bird feeders from squirrel entry can all discourage the rodents from coming onto your property. In order to protect your Dallas home from squirrels, be sure to seal potential entry areas, like vent gaps, siding gaps, chimneys and windows.



Because squirrels are so common and persistent, it is wise to contact the professionals in order to perform thorough and effective Dallas squirrel control. The experts at Trutech of Dallas are experienced when it comes to squirrel trapping and will work closely with you to make sure the squirrels are fully removed and your home is restored.
