Colonie wildlife control tip of the month:
About squirrels: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior
Squirrels are agile rodents that is visible anywhere in the world. They belong to the Sciuridae family, which
also includes prairie dogs, marmots and chipmunks as well. There are more than two hundred species of squirrels
around, this is according to the integrated Colonie animal control Taxonomic Information System or IT IS. They are also categorized by types
like the Albino, Antelope, Spotted Gray, Fox, Pygmy, Northern Flying and Idaho to name some.
They usually live anywhere except in Australia and in Antarctica. This is in accordance with the Colonie pest control news from the BBC. The
squirrels usually live on trees and in wooded places, while the ground squirrels stick up to its name. They dig on burrows,
which is composed of tunnels and they stay there during the winter time. The flying squirrels on the other hand live in the
holes in the trees or in the nest that they have built into the crooks of the tree branches. To reach a tree from the ground
or from another tree, they fly and spread their muscle membrane in between their legs and then they glide through the air.
On a daily Colonie wildlife removal basis, squirrels eat 1 lbs. of food weekly. A lot of people think that they eat nuts alone, but this is not true at
all. They are omnivorous and they eat plants and meat at the same time. They eat fungi, fruits, seeds and they will also eat eggs,
caterpillars, small animals and even small insects if given a chance.
The squirrels are not an easy going animals, but they are often the target of snakes and cats. Squirrels are often seen on the ground,
because they have this Colonie animal trapping habit of burying their foods and they also retrieve them there when the time comes. During the fall season, you
can see them digging small holes in the ground, most probably, that is where they have deposited their food, especially the nuts and the
acorns. They can get lots of nuts during the season, but on hot months up to winter time, they go down the ground and dig to get food. A
lot of nuts and acorns weren’t taken, so they just develop into trees. This is one of the most essential roles of the squirrels to the
ecosystem. They merely plant trees without their knowledge.
Have you ever wondered how come the members of the squirrel family are diurnal, while most of the mammals are nocturnal or active at night
time? Most probably, because they are good at escaping the attacks of the Colonie exterminator predators that they just don’t want to slink at night time.
