This Wichita Kansas juvenile squirrel was caught leaving an attic access to explore, unfortunately for her I was on a ladder installing traps as she left the attic. At that age they are actually quite placid and timid and usually go stiff as if trying to become invisible.
I watched her for a while before I remembered I had my camera and took this photo. I ended up actually picking her up with my hand (Which I do not advocate! they do bite!) and the next day after catching her mom re-united them. A rehabilitation company ened up finding them a new place to live. So it was a great ending to a potentially fatal end.
Rodents such as mice, rats and squirrels in Wichita Kansas are one of the leading causes of attic fires each year due to chewing of the electric wiring in the home, not to mention that they can be extremely loud for their size and also cause many sleepless night every year!

Wichita Squirrels belong to a large family of small or medium-sized rodents called the Sciuridae. The family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots (including woodchucks), flying squirrels, and prairie dogs. Kansas Squirrels are indigenous to the Americas, Eurasia, and Africa and have been introduced to Australia. The earliest known squirrels date from the Eocene and are most closely related to the mountain beaver and to the dormouse among living species.
Squirrels in Wichita are one of the leading causes of attic fires due to their chewing of electrical wiring. Make sure if you hear noises in your walls, crawlspace or attic space that you have a trained professional inspect it. Please remember that pest control companies in Wichita are not always trained to handle wildlife issues, and that wildlife technicians have to be licensed by the state to handle most issues.
