Crossroads: if you have not dealt with squirrel damage, you are fortunate.  If they get into a vacant property they will chew on window frames trying to get out.  They can chew up wires, pipes and cause damage in attics.  If a tenant complains about squirrels, don’t delay in getting them out.  They are a hazard.  Call an exterminator to get rid of them and then seal up any holes where they can get in.
