Squirrel Removal Service
Squirrels are very cute until they become a pest around structures. If they enter a building, they are capable of doing damage to a multitude of objects because of their chewing behavior. The most common entry point for squirrels is the attic, which they may enter by chewing a hole into a gable area or other susceptible area. Once in the attic, they may nest and eventually reproduce with a litter of several young. In an attic, there is potential for damage to stored goods as well as to wiring with the potential for fire due to gnawing of those wires.
Squirrel Removal & Trapping
When performing squirrel removal, our wildlife professional will determine the most effective and humane way to remove the squirrel(s) from your property. The most common methods used are:
We do catch all types of squirrels. If juveniles are found in an attic, they will be hand removed and relocated with their mom. If the mom is not in sight and the young cannot survive on their own, our wildlife specialists will seek help from a local wildlife rehabilitation center.
Precautions like removing trees or tree branches on or close to your roof can help prevent squirrel problems in your home. We also urge you to refrain from using bird feeders as they are a huge attractant for squirrels and additional wildlife. After squirrel removal, we advise all our customers to remove food sources like accessible birdseed and acorns, if present, in order to maintain a squirrel-free home.
A squirrel in your home should not be ignored. While cute, these critters can create significant damage inside and outside your home. They will use available materials like insulation to create nests, bring in nuts and seeds, and harbor ectoparasites like fleas or diseases like leptospirosis.
How to Deal With Squirrels:
There are several ways of dealing with squirrels. Environmental changes may be made such as pruning trees that extend over a structure or removing or securing any decorative trim or attachments that provide access to the structure.
Go Green Pest Conrol provides caged trapping service which will allow removal of squirrels without harm to the animal. Once captured, we will safely transport them far away to discourage a return appearance. For more detailed product information, please contact our team.
