    Natural threats to southern flying squirrels include predators such as hawks, owls, house cats, bobcats, weasels, raccoons, and climbing snakes. Though the southern flying squirrel has no special conservation status, it does need wooded habitat to survive, the kind of habitat that is disappearing at a rate of 5, acres per day.

The southern flying squirrel or the assapan (Glaucomys volans) is one of three species of the genus Glaucomys and one of three flying squirrel species found in North is found in deciduous and mixed woods in the eastern half of North America, from southeastern Canada, to Florida. Disjunct distribution for populations of this species have been recorded in the highlands of Mexico.

The Humboldt's flying squirrel was formerly considered conspecific, but was found to be a cryptic species, and now considered distinct. Another species with a small range is the Virginia northern flying squirrel. Its habitat is the red spruce forest of West Virginia, which lies entirely in the Appalachian Mountains.

Destruction of the red spruce is believed to have caused the Virginia northern flying squirrel to decrease in number. Flying Squirrels and Overwintering.

The two flying squirrel species that live in the United States are the northern and southern flying squirrels. Both have been known to invade homes when the weather cools.

However, while they ready themselves for a long winter's rest like most pests, flying squirrels do not technically hibernate. helped initiate comprehensive home range, habitat use, and food-habits research that has provided many additional insights into the subspecies’ biology (Ford et al.Menzel et al.Menzel et al.

Northern flying squirrels (Glaucomys sabrinus) of the Black Hills National Forest (BHNF) of South Dakota represent a unique and isolated population, but little is known about the home range size and habitat use of this -nine northern flying squirrels (34 males and 25 females) were radio-collared and tracked during their active period, from dusk until dawn, by point sampling.

Habitat: The northern flying squirrel occupies a wide variety of habitats across its range. Although this species has long been Although this species has long been considered an old-growth forest specialist, old-growth habitat may not be essential (Waters and ZabelRansome and Sullivan.

The most common approach used by Virginia professional wildlife removal companies dealing with a flying squirrel infestation is to seal most flying squirrel entry and exit points, leaving only one or two exit or entry points for the squirrels to use.

Once these have been sealed, then a. Abstract. The northern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus) has an extensive range in North America, inhabiting boreal, coniferous, and mixed forests of the northern United States and Canada and the slopes of the mountains of the east and undisturbed northern populations are apparently thriving, but those in the southern mountains are considered disjunct relicts occupying.
