" I am a Verizon (formerly Bell Telephone) cable splicing technician. Flying squirrels are keeping me in business. They absolutely love the splice closures on our main telephone lines. They chew holes in them and then move in, and while there they chew the small wires inside, which puts people out of phone service, which brings me to them when I troubleshoot. We now have 2 of them (sisters) as pets, which I plucked from a splice when they were just pinkies. Their mom was not happy and kept coming at me. She would climb high in neighboring trees and soar down and THWACK onto the utility pole right next to me. It's very cool to watch. I have disturbed many of them, and some are so used to seeing my fellow splicers and myself in their nests that they just stay in there and look at you while you piece-out the wires. Our pets are in a large bird cage, and we let them out to "fly" around the living room sometimes. My wife dropper-fed them for weeks when we first brought them home, which was alot of work, around the clock, but worth it in the end. We are in the suburbs of Philadelphia."
