Squirrels

Although they may be cute in the wild, squirrels can cause major damage to your home or place of business. Squirrels can chew through electrical wiring and insulation, and they’re very hard to eliminate. Like rodents, they can squeeze through tiny holes, climb, and even swim.

Signs of a squirrel problem

Squirrel infestations are often easier to hear than see. They like warm, dry places, and are typically found in chimneys and attics. Even if your building seems secure, do not be fooled. Squirrels can chew through siding and into your living rooms.

Squirrels are a problem year round, and you are most likely to hear them moving around during the day, when they are most active. They’ll nest within walls or crevices to stay close to food sources, and will typically chew large holes in their living areas to create entry ways for other squirrels.

How do you get rid of squirrels?

At Connor’s, we use humane common-sense techniques for squirrel control and to prevent future infestations. We begin with an inspection to identify where and how squirrels are entering your building, and then we will remove the pests using humane traps.

To prevent future infestations, we use exclusion techniques to seal entry ways. We also help identify and secure any potential food sources inside and outside to detract the squirrels from returning. We’ll also clean up any mess that the squirrels may leave behind, and clean up and sanitize the infested areas.
