Are ground squirrels known to enter homes or yards?
Property owners regularly encounter ground squirrels infesting yards, farmlands, and gardens. They often congregate in suburban and rural areas and avoid urban centers since they need tall grasses and open spaces to live comfortably. Ground squirrels prefer to set up residences on golf courses, grazing pastures, public parks, and lawns when they enter suburban locations.Though they are rarely interested in entering buildings, ground squirrels are capable of making their way inside manmade structures via chimneys, broken window and door screens, vents, and other large openings.


Do ground squirrels harm people or property?
While their diet includes several harmful insects and their presence can be considered beneficial, ground squirrels still eat a variety of both cash crops and ornamental plants, which earns them a notorious reputation with farmers and gardeners.. Their burrowing leaves holes in the ground that can make mowing difficult, dehydrate tree roots, and weaken the foundation of structures. Additionally, ground squirrels can host parasitic ticks, lice, mites, and fleas. 

Control and Safety

Though fences typically guard against the foraging of crop pests, ground squirrels are adept diggers and often burrow under such barriers. The cost of and time required to effectively employ baits and traps make them unfavorable options. Habitat modification, such as removing brush piles, is the best method of ground squirrel control as it helps limit their hideouts and makes areas less favorable to nesting.Ground Squirrel in Cape Cod
