degradation of habitat.
degradation of habitat are the main factors limiting Southern Flying
Squirrel populations. The hardwood forests have been drastically
fragmented and reduced in area, and these squirrels will not live in
isolated woodlots. Competition for food also limits the size of the
Southern Flying Squirrel population. The use of pesticides could be
affecting Southern Flying Squirrel populations as well, since these
squirrels feed mainly on insects.
