It can be hard not to smile when watching squirrels chase each other around the yard or park. It can be fun to enjoy their frenetic energy, following their constantly twitching tails as they scurry about a tree trunk or frantically search for acorns in the spring. Many people have pondered whether to care for them and keep as a pet, bringing a few squirrels into their home. The resounding advice from those who have done so is to not make their same mistakes. Despite squirrels’ cute and cuddly appearance from afar, the realities of bringing a wild animal into your home are far from charming. Finding them unexpectedly inside your home without Critter Guard’s utility line and pole guards to deter them can also be an unpleasant surprise. Squirrels’ nature and demeanor can wreak havoc in your home, so keep them out!
