Squirrel Control

Do you have a Squirrel that is driving you nuts?

Squirrel Control

Squirrels are a type of rodent and pose very similar problems to that of rats and mice. Although they usually inhabit trees and outside spaces, they are known to burrow in the roofs of properties during the colder months. During this time, they’re entirely capable of causing significant structural damage; chewing through wires, beams and pipes. This will, of course, result in up to thousands of pounds worth of damage for the property owner, which is why an uninvited squirrel guest is best removed sooner rather than later.

What To Look For

Apart from physically seeing the pest, there are various tell-tale signs you need to watch out for that will alert you to the presence of any unwanted guests. They include:

  • Pest Droppings – This is classic sign of pest issues. Also watch out for urine trails and grease marks, as these often indicate the movement of pests throughout your property.
  • Nesting – Pests typically create a nest for themselves in dark, tucked-away areas of your home or garden.
  • Damage to Structures – Signs of gnawing and holes are an instant red flag of a pest problem. Similarly, if you notice small holes, especially in wooden beams, this can also signal you are in need of pest control.
  • Damage to Plants – Some pests are known to devour houseplants, so you should keep an eye out for damage to their leaves and stalks as an indicator to the presence of a pest.

If you spot one or more of these tell-tale signs, you must get in contact as soon as possible, the structural integrity of your home, and your own personal health may be in jeopardy.
