How Gray Squirrels Got Into the Attic of this House in Roswell, Georgia

Squirrels chewed their way into this Roswell home

Upon not finding an easier way to get into the house, a squirrel decided to give its chompers a workout and gnaw its way into this house in Roswell, Georgia.

Most likely there was either water rot or a small construction gap between the soffit panel and the shingles. Squirrels need something they can wrap their teeth around before they can gnaw their way into a home. They can't gnaw flat, intact wood. It would be like trying to take a bite out of a wall.

We'll seal up the house and relocate the squirrels to the forest, where they belong.
