Some people think squirrels and other wildlife all hibernate in winter due to the cold and the lack of food during this time, but it's not true. Some animals hibernate, but only those who possess enough body mass to sustain them for extended periods. Squirrels are active in winter, but because of the cold, their behavior is much different than in summer.

Winter in New England can mean temperatures well below zero. But just because it's incredibly cold outside, doesn't mean critters are not still on the move. Unlike some animals in frosty New England, skunks don't hibernate. They don't have enough body mass to survive a dormant state for long. So they must still forage for food all winter long, and they have to keep warm until the temperatures begin to rise again in spring.

Springtime in New England sure is lovely. Isn't it? The birds are singing, the trees are budding, the plants are emerging from their slumber bringing green and flowers back to our yards... and the skunks, squirrels, racoons and mice are waking up.

Eliminating Squirrels, mice, rats, skunks and other wildlife from your home and permanently excluding them from re-entry is a wonderful thing. However even if they've only been inside a brief time, they usually cause a lot unseen damage - chewing your home’s walls, floors, ceilings, wiring, making nests, leaving caustic droppings or even dying, leaving rotting carcass inside the hidden parts of your home.

At Birch Hill Critter Solutions, not only are we experts at discovering every entry point, removing the nuisance wildlife in a humane and fastidious manor, excluding them from entry again, but also, professional clean up and wildlife damage repair service for the safety and comfort of your home.

Do you hear something scurrying around in the walls? Uh-oh. It's probably squirrels or mice escaping the cold, making nests in your nice warm house. Notice I said "Mice" or "Squirrels" - plural, because they rarely take up residence alone.
