The gray tree squirrel is a common problem entering homes through the roof most times in attics and soffits. They must be all trapped and removed before any repairs to holes are done. If a hole is closed and a squirrel is trapped INSIDE it will do damage trying to get out in some situations getting into the house. If a hole is closed and a squirrel is trapped OUTSIDE it will do damage to the exterior of the house to try to get in gnawing and scratching at the house.


Raccoons also nest in attics and soffits like squirrels but can be more dangerous being more likely to be rabid. They also can nest underneath decks and crawl spaces that have open access from the outside.
