during the months of May, June & July. A number of deciduous
tree species of various ages may be attacked, pole-stage beech
and sycamore are most often severely damaged.
It causes problems to market gardeners and damagesparks
and gardens where cerials, vegetables and fruit can be taken.
In urban areas squirrels can gain access to roof
spaces via building defects and cause damage to roof timbers,
electrical wiring and plumbing.
