How do Squirrels Stay Warm in Winter?

Did you ever wonder where or what your squirrel family from your back yard does during the winter months? Well, some of them are moving into your house to have heat during winter to have their babies in January. Squirrels like to break in through the chimney, soffit, gutter lines and cedar sided walls.


Common Missouri Squirrels

Four squirrel species are commonly identified as living in Missouri and surrounding areas: the fox squirrel, the gray squirrel, the red squirrel, and the southern flying squirrel. Flying squirrels are seldom seen because they are primarily nocturnal animals. While the red squirrels often are sighted in rural areas, the gray squirrel is the animal that is seen commonly in urban and suburban settings; in fact, the gray squirrel is the only tree squirrel many people ever observe in a natural setting.

Squirrels are territorial; you will only catch your squirrel and/or family members. No need to worry about having the neighbors’ squirrels come over and catching them.
If you’re not sure what critters are living in your walls or attic, the time of day or night is a sure sign as to what they are. For instance; Squirrels move around and make noise between 5am-7am and 4pm-6pm.
