These little guys might have bushy tails and a cute, wide-eyed gaze, but they also carry a number of diseases and have the ability to wreak havoc on your home or business. The Fox Squirrel, the resident squirrel in Central Texas and the one you’re most likely to come into contact with, can climb any textured, vertical surface, including the inside of rain gutters to get on your roof. Once they reach your roof, the Fox Squirrel can chew through a variety of materials, including the materials that make up many roofs, to access your attic. Once inside, they can damage your air conditioning, chew through your electrical and alarm wiring and leave droppings everywhere they go. Not to mention, their urine and these droppings may expose you to a number of diseases, including leptospirosis, salmonella and squirrel pox.
