Squirrels

Do you keep hearing something moving in your attic? You may have a squirrel problem. Although they look cute in the wild, squirrels can cause major damage to your home or place of business. Squirrels create safety hazards by chewing through electrical wiring and insulation, and are hard to eliminate. Like rodents, they can squeeze through tiny holes, climb, and even swim.

Even if your building seems secure, do not be fooled. Squirrels are known to chew their way through siding and into people’s living or bedrooms. Once they find a comfortable spot like an attic, they typically chew large holes in that area to create squirrel entry ways.

Signs of a Squirrel Problem

Squirrel infestations are often easier to hear than see. Squirrels like warm, dry places and are typically found in chimneys and attics. You are most likely to hear them moving around during the day time, when they are most active. 

Squirrels are a problem year round. They mate twice a year and are especially active during mating season: first in February and March, and again in July and August. When the mercury starts to drop in the fall, squirrels are known to enter homes and offices in search of warmth and food. They often nest within walls or crevices to stay close to the food source. 

Get Rid of Squirrels

We use humane common-sense techniques for squirrel control and to prevent future infestations. We begin with an inspection to identify where, why and how squirrels enter your home or office building. If we find an infestation, we remove the squirrels using humane traps. Then to prevent more squirrels from entering, we use exclusion techniques to seal their entry ways. We also help you identify and secure potential food sources inside and outside to detract the squirrels from returning. If the squirrels left a mess, our team can also clean up and sanitize the infested areas and safely dispose of any waste.

Eliminate your squirrel problem before they cause even more damage.
