Helping Homeowners Remove Flying Squirrels and Repair Flying Squirrel Damage Since 1976

When you have a flying squirrel in the attic, they should be humanely trapped and relocated to a good home. ABC Wildlife humanely relocates every flying squirrel back to its natural habitat.

When there’s a flying squirrel in your house, they make noise in the attic and soil the insulation with their urine and feces. After flying squirrels are humanely removed, the holes through which they entered must be sealed to prevent additional animals from entering your attic. ABC Wildlife will repair flying squirrel damage to prevent future wildlife problems from occurring.

Since 1976, we’ve been resolving human-wildlife conflict across Chicago and the Chicago Suburbs by humanely removing flying squirrels and repairing the damage they leave behind.

  • Humanely remove flying squirrels from your attic
  • Release the flying squirrels alive at least 10 miles from your home
  • Eliminate odors and unsightly mess by removing flying squirrel contamination
  • Install animal-proof barriers to prevent flying squirrels from ever coming back
  • Deliver peace of mind

Flying squirrels have their place in nature, not in your house.

What Happens When There’s a Flying Squirrel in My House?

Flying squirrels chew small holes to enter attics, or enter through gaps and cracks caused by settling or faulty construction.

Once inside, they move the insulation around to create comfy nests and latrine areas where they deposit their droppings. They breed twice a year and create large family groups.

Contact our team of wildlife experts to set humane traps for the flying squirrels, and then transport them back to nature once they are captured. It’s a win-win solution for the homeowner and for the flying squirrel.

Why Do I Have Flying Squirrels?

Flying squirrels are one of the least studied mammals in Illinois. While they’re common and found in every town in Illinois, they’re active only at night and they spend their life up in the trees, rarely walking on the ground, so most people don’t notice them.

While flying squirrels usually live inside of hollow trees, your attic makes a great substitution for a hollow tree, and they frequently occupy attics.

People who live in neighborhoods with mature trees report more flying squirrel problems. Homeowners in Evanston, Kenilworth, Glencoe, Winnetka, Hinsdale, and Glenview report the most flying squirrel problems.

They’re looking for shelter. They’re looking for warmth. They’re looking at your home, no matter where you live. Find out what we can all do to coexist.
