The grey squirrels in one New Jersey County are having a blast this holiday season…again. For the fourth year in a row, grey squirrels are noshing on the LED light bulbs that are decorating Fredericton in New Brunswick County. For some odd reason, the squirrels like all of the colors except the red ones though. County officials thought that this year they had outsmarted the squirrels when they installed larger LED lights. These lights were no match for the taste buds of the grey squirrel though. They like the new ones just as much as the old ones. The squirrels are seen daily sitting up in the trees eating every bit of the plastic bulbs…except those pretty red ones of course!
Squirrels are wonderful to watch while frolicking out in the yard and up in the trees; but they can become quite menacing if they decide that your house or attic would be a good nesting spot. Besides being messy houseguests, for some reason they like to nibble on electrical wires. Many times, their chewing has caused homeowners extensive damage and even fires.
If you have squirrels in your attic or walls, you should never try to remove them yourself. It is always wise to call a professional pest control expert who is trained in squirrel removal.
