Temple wildlife control tip of the month:
What is a squirrel’s mating habits, when do they give birth, and how does it raise its young?
The baby squirrel nest two times yearly, one in the latter part of winter, while the other one is in the latter part of summer. They
usually have 3-4 litters. The babies will open their eyes when they reached their 4th weeks of life and the young are often starting
to explore outside of the nest at six weeks’ time. They are weaned and they will be ready for the Temple animal trapping world after 10 weeks of life. The baby
squirrel has a better chance to survive when it is under the care of the mom. Oftentimes the healthy squirrels are found on the ground and
they are not orphans, they just need to be reunited with the mom must have fallen from the mom while she carries them by the scruff back to
The breeding habits of squirrels depend on their kinds. The gray squirrels that live on trees, build nests for them to sleep. The adults may
turn between three nests, but that depends on their populace and density of their Temple wildlife removal living space. These nests are occupied by a single adult squirrel
or by the mom and baby. The Eastern gray squirrel on the other hand breed 2 times yearly in summer and winter time, while the Western gray squirrels
breed once a year. They only breed at summer time.
The squirrels have 2 litters yearly, the first is between February to August and the next one is from August to September. After their mating season,
the female will get rid of the male away and she will raise the babies by herself. The babies will be born naked and deserted. It will not get out of
the nest for 7-8 weeks, because it cannot walk or jump by itself yet. They are discouraged by 10-12 weeks. The Temple pest control spring litter will be eliminated by the
mother after weaning, since the next breeding cycle will start. The fall litter can stay with the mother in the nest until winter or until after winter
before the Temple animal control courting season starts again.
The squirrel uses 2 basic kinds of hubs, they use the tree cavities as well as the leaf nests and they take advantage of the shelter that human houses can
provide. They are active in the early Temple exterminator morning, while they rest in the middle of the day, they will become active again later in the afternoon before the
sunset. Their home range may reach more than 4 acres.
