Iowa City Wildlife Tip:
Flying squirrel prevention – how to keep flying squirrels out of the house

Flying squirrels are tiny and beautiful creatures. You might even get tempted to keep them hostage in your house. However, the cost of repairing the damages left behind by these creatures may leave you with no choice but to evict them.

Damages that may get you thinking about evicting them

These animals are rodents. Their lifestyle will cause too much damage to your house. Below are just but a few of those damages:

• They chew wires, pipes and woods in your house – this is in attempt to keep their teeth in shape.
• Accumulation of their urine produces an awful smell – this might keep guests out of your house. • Noise – flying squirrels may produce too much noise when going about their activities.
• Risk of diseases – flying squirrels may be vectors of various diseases. They might also introduce fleas and ticks into your house.

Keeping the life squirrel out of your house

Apart from removing the flying squirrel out of your house, you need to ensure that it never finds its way back again. There are various methods to ensure this. Below are just but few of them:

• Illuminate their habitat – just like any other wild animal, flying squirrels require dark places to feel safe and rare their young. Ensuring all the places that can serve as habitats in your house are well illuminated will not only remove the flying squirrels from your house but also keep them away for good.
• Use of repellents – spray the possible habitats for flying squirrels. Consider using predators’ urine. It works best. However, you need to keep spraying the places regularly especially after two weeks or as soon as it rains. The spray need to remain effective.
• Installing one way out funnels in their entry points - this will allow the flying squirrel out but not in again. Check the place for young to avoid starving them to death in there. Clean the place before installing the funnel too.
• Noises – just like any other wild animal, flying squirrels despise noises. Introducing recorded predators, noises in the areas where they habit play the trick. Keep changing the position of the noises so that they remain real to the flying squirrels for long.


As much as we would like to live harmoniously with these animals, the damages they cause are just too much. To avoid this, we need to evict them and keep them away for good. Any method can be used to do this provided it does not deny them their right to live.
