Squirrels do have a “Sweet Tooth”

Lead boot and damaged flange

Recently doing a roof inspection I came a cross a lead plumbing boot that was partially devoured at the bottom part of the flange. As you can see it appears to have been bitten off and removed. Squirrels sharpen their teeth with it because they need to grind down their teeth. When they do this they become addicted to the taste and can’t help themselves. Lead apparently has a sweet taste, and was used in Ancient Rome to sweeten wine This type of defect should be repaired before you find yourself going nuts over what a squirrel can do.
