Squirrels are commonly found rodents roaming in and out of houses in New England. The squirrel family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, woodchucks, flying squirrels, amongst other rodents. As a professional wildlife removal company, people often ask us can squirrels climb a vertical brick wall? The answer to that is fairly easy, just like climbing a tree, climbing a wall is easy.
Another common question that is often asked is can squirrels chew through a brick wall. This one is not obvious because it depends if the brick wall is solid enough. If the brick wall is solid, then there is no way. However, if there is a small hole or deterioration, then squirrels can chew through a bit of mortar to get inside a building.
It is important to examine the whole house and make sure take note of any holes. Squirrel holes can be anywhere from near the roof to right on the brick wall. It is important to contact a professional wildlife removal company to install a one-way exclusion door right on the hole after sealing off all other holes.
