Well folks, I hope you’ve been enjoying the lovely warm summer that we’ve been having! Especially considering how cool and wet the last two have been, I have certainly not been complaining about the hot weather compared to those summers and of course the last two brutal winters we’ve had.
But of course it seems neither have our furry friends. Usually in July and August, if you’ve had squirrels or raccoons in your attic, they tend to vacate during these two hot months. However, I honestly cannot explain how they seem to be surviving, and thriving, in attics through these extremely hot days. Because a typical attic that is properly insulated can generate temperatures up to 50 to 60°C if the outside temperature is around 40 Celsius, you would think had a furbearing animal that is taken up residence in one of these places would want to leave.
And that is very much the usual case. It just doesn’t seem to be this year. We are still getting calls and finding holes that squirrels and raccoons are breaking into attics. So my advice to you is to stay vigilant, if you hear any noises or see any holes please give us a call and we can assess what’s going on and help you get rid of unwanted pests.
