A flying squirrel’s diet includes nuts, seeds, and fruits. It also enjoys mushrooms and fungi. Fruit is especially important for captive flying squirrels because it helps maintain their digestive system. The best way to provide fruit to your flying squirrel is to mimic the food it eats in nature. Fruit should comprise at least 40% of your flying squirrel’s diet. However, if you don’t have fruit available, you can always buy mealworms.
Some repellents are effective against flying squirrels. Ro-pel contains a bittering agent called denatonium saccharide. You can also apply it to your plants, fences, outdoor furniture, and fruits. Ro-pel has a low success rate, however, and may have negative effects on other wildlife. In addition, you can also apply hot sauce to your fruit trees and vegetables.
For capturing squirrels, you can use one of several different types of traps. Body-gripping traps are the most popular of these and are made of steel. These traps can be purchased from many different manufacturers. Each model is slightly different, but they all use the same general principle. A good place to put the trap is in a soffit vent, where squirrels are most likely to enter. You should also place one near a chimney or fence top. Be careful to place the trap where the squirrels are not likely to escape.
Professional grade traps are designed to be simple to use and maintain. They are most suitable for people with 10 or more squirrels to trap. A good trap will last you for several years, and they are very effective in capturing more than one animal at a time. The author of this article has been using a trap for 20 years and has caught hundreds of squirrels. The trap is a perfect fit for both squirrels and roof rats.
Calcium deficiency in flying squirrels
Flying squirrels are social animals that enjoy human attention and can be kept in a home environment. However, calcium deficiency can lead to health problems in this animal. This is why you must provide it with a calcium block in its enclosure and feed a balanced diet. You can also purchase calcium powders for reptiles, but this should not be its primary source of food. If you wish to avoid calcium deficiency, make sure to provide your flying squirrel with vitamin supplements.
One study on the calcium metabolism in grey squirrels has found that the animals are unable to utilize CaOx as a calcium source. Interestingly, squirrels fed the CaOx diet had lower BMD than those on the control diet, but they did not differ from the low-Ca group. Furthermore, their femoral total BMD did not differ from those of the low-Ca group or control.
Translocation of flying squirrels
You’ve probably seen a fly squirrel on television or in a magazine, but how do you transfer these creatures into your home? Flying squirrels have a soft gray or brown fur and flattened tail. Their eyes are dark and large, and they glide on stretched skin to move from tree to tree. In Nebraska, flying squirrels are fully protected and rarely cause damage to buildings.
One of my coworkers captured a video of a flying squirrel soaring from one oak to the next. I sent it to a professor of conservation biology, Larkin Powell. He watched the little creature soaring to the next oak and watched the crew watching on the ground. They confirmed that this particular species had settled on East Campus. The flying squirrels were able to reach a height of 50 feet and fly up to 30 miles per hour.
