What are the signs of a Squirrel problem?

 

Scratching - Noises lofts or roof spaces, they look for warm, insulated lofts for nesting materials and building nests to breed.

Chewed bark or hollow openings – Squirrels will nest in gardens and trees.

Damage – They gnaw on wood, plastic and metals. Squirrels can even cause fires by chewing through cables and wiring.

Nests – built in warm, hidden places using shredded material such as newspaper, plastic and fabrics.

Distinctive smell – rodents leave an ammonia-like smell from their urine that will be particularly strong in enclosed areas such as in loft spaces, garages, sheds or wall cavities.

 

Where are Squirrels most likely to be found?

 

Squirrels are most likely to be found where there is warmth and they can be undisturbed, loft  or roof spaces tend to provide both.

 

When do Squirrels cause a problem?

 

Squirrels are an all year round problem for some, however they are most likely to enter properties during the colder winter months between January and March.

 

How do i get rid of Squirrels?

 

Quite simply, getting rid of squirrels is not easy. They are intelligent creatures and sense danger, this is what makes them somewhat a quick and shy animal when all is quiet in a sleeping house or a locked up shop or factory. Products sold as 'sonic repellents' or 'electronic deterants' are truly as gimicky as they sound. When it comes to 'off the shelf' products you really do get what you pay for. When you pay a professional to do the job, you pay for our methods, our high grade professional products, our expertise and most importantly a guarantee to get rid of squirrels. There are still things you can do to help prevent and discourage squirrels from entering your property and we are happy to advise you of these during treatment.

Our 3 Visit Squirrel Treatment Plan



 If grey squirrels are infesting your roof space, they can be eradicated. Grey Squirrels are often given the nickname of a furry rat.

The grey squirrel is regarded as an invasive non-native species following its inclusion under Schedule 9 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. The grey squirrel is regarded as a pest species and is afforded no protection under the WCA. Under Schedule 9 of the WCA, it is illegal to release a grey squirrel into the wild, or allow one to escape. This means if you trap one, you are obliged to humanely dispatch it. You must not let it go as this act would be illegal.


The red squirrel is a protected species in the UK and is included in Schedules 5 and 6 of the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 (WCA) (amended by the Countryside & Rights of Way Act 2000). It is an offence to intentionally kill or injure a red squirrel or intentionally or recklessly damage or destroy any structure or place a red squirrel uses for shelter or protection, or disturb a red squirrel while it occupies such a place. It is very unlikely you would find a red squirrel in an urban area let alone find one to be a pest as they favour heavy woodland areas.
