    Default problem squirrel

    We have been doing some garage work and had an opening into attic where a gray squirrel got in-my husband was able to scare him out and close up the hole but this squirrel has been chewing the wood to get back in and is hanging around the roof whenever we are outside..... I am concerned that maybe there are babies left inside but according to web, November is not a season for babies. Do squirrels try to get back to a "nest" this much in general or its possible there could be babies stuck in there?? Any advice appreciated!

    Being that frantic may indicate that there are babies. I would go up and check if I were you. You don't want them to die or her to destroy your garage. If you cover the hole with hardware cloth it will deter her better than wood does.

    So its possible to have babies in November? We saw the squirrel and it did not look like a lactating female, was rather smallish but my husband said he will look tomorrow just to see if anything there.....

    In Florida there seems to be the possibility of babies all year long. Tell his to listen carefully as well as looking.

    Could this possibly be a young juvie that was born in the attic trying to get back to nest?
    They tend to look like small adults by the time they start to venture out.
