Cowleys Pest Services Case Studies: Exposed Vent Could Led to a Squirrel Problem in Pennington, NJ
While servicing this home in Pennington, NJ, we discovered that one of the exhaust vents appeared damaged and brittle. Over time, due to harsh weather conditions and sun exposure, exhaust vents can become brittle and fall apart. As we took a closer look, we found some squirrel hair inside the vent. As we continued inspecting the home, we found another exhaust vent that had no cover on it.
We reported what we found to the homeowner and recommended that she contact our Little Rascals Nuisance Wildlife Division to properly exclude the exhaust vents and to safely remove the squirrel. She agreed and immediately called our office to schedule an appointment.
Here's one vent that had the squirrel hair in it.
And another vent that is exposed. If not repaired, squirrels and other nuisance wildlife will use it to infest the home.
