Grey squirrels are approximately 18 inches in length, which includes their 9 inch tail and they weigh about 1-1.5 lbs. as an adult. Their coloration is usually a grayish colour, however they can have tan hairs in the fur as well and they usually have a white belly.
Their winter coat is grey above with a white underside and their summer coat is shorter, sleeker and more brownish grey Red squirrels have red/brown upper parts in summer but may show some grey on the back in winter, which can sometimes lead to some confusion.
They will also construct feeding shelters out of leafs. They generally have 2 litters a year, 2-4 young per litter and they normally breed in midwinter and late spring. Gestation is about 44 days. Their diet consists of bird eggs, insects, berries, fruit, vegetables, nuts and nestling birds, squirrels also like to hoard their food.
The Grey squirrels are most active during the day, and can inhabit the attic areas as well as crawl spaces. They like to enter the attic areas from your gutters and nearby trees and bushes. Installing gutter guards, or down spouts with screen may prevent them from climbing up to the roof through a down spout.
