By "free access," did you mean that the squirrels had free access to the attic? If they do, this is a definite no-no. And you would be better off if you had the attic SEALED, then start trapping the squirrels. As many as you can.

Once you complete that, you don't have to spend a fortune on special kinds of wires that probably costs a fortune... And it might not even work. Squirrels will chew through anything less than galvanized steel. Anything else is fair game hahaha.

Not being an electrician, and only an exterminator, I can't answer an "electrical" question. But I do have a buddy that used to be a lineman, that said squirrels, wherever they are, cause more electrical outages than anything else.

And I know that, as rodents, they chew on EVERYTHING! So I would be leery of squirrels being near electrical lines in a structure.

As far as the trapping goes, there are some hints on my squirrel page.
