Squirrels Gnawed Their Way into the Attic of this House in Atlanta

Squirrels gnawed a bowl shaped hole about three inches across through the top of the wooden fascia and into the attic of a house inn Atlanta Georgia.

The squirrels started with the existing gap between the roof sheathing and fascia, and gnawed it into a hole fit for a squirrel.

The lack of staining and the freshness of the gnaw marks tell me that this is a new squirrel problem, which is a good thing. It doesn't change the squirrel-removal or squirrel-proofing phases of the job very much, but it makes the clean-up phase much easier and may avoid the need to replace all the insulation. The longer squirrels live in an attic, the more of a mess they make; and the more work has to be done to make the attic healthy again.
