Squirrels live up to five years, weigh around a pound and their diet primarily consists of nuts and fruits. Squirrels are very used to being in contact with humans, and are surprisingly trusting of us. They will commonly eat right out of a person’s hand if they are in need of food. With that being said, handling squirrels is frowned upon, as they carry diseases and other sorts of bacteria.
If they gain access inside of a home, squirrels can terrorize attics and crawlspaces. They are able to fit a good deal of food and bedding in their cheek pouches, and will continuously bring more and more of it into your building, creating a nest. They are very loud, making squeaking and scratching sounds at all hours of the day.
