Although very cute to look at, they can be very damaging by gnawing or chewing entry holes in order to gain access to your home. Not only do they cause cosmetic damage they can chew up your electrical wiring, and make a total mess out of your attic. These are nocturnal creatures and will keep you up at night once they have gained access inside your home.
