The Best Way To Get Rid Of Squirrels

Professional squirrel trappers may be needed when a minor problem turns into a major infestation. On the surface, these rodents look whimsical and harmless, with their big bushy tails and mischievous little faces. However, beneath the façade of adorability lies a dark underbelly of mess and destruction. If you’re worried about your property or plants and want to know if the increased sightings of little grey demons should be a concern, then check out this useful guide on deterrence.

Squirrel Deterrents You Can Do Yourself

It’s important to note that not all situations require squirrel trappers. If you’ve only got a few of the little guys running about, there are some things that you can do yourself to prevent an infestation. A couple of squirrels are good for the ecosystem and provide a certain aesthetic to an outdoor space. However, when they start to reproduce at an alarming rate, they can not only damage the environment around us, but your property as well.

As members of the National Pest Technicians Association, we can help keep pests at bay in your home, when standard deterrents aren’t quite cutting it.

In Your Property

Deterring squirrels in your house is important if you’re noticing a rise in population around you. These types of rodents are opportunists. If there’s access to the warm, cosy roof space of your home, they’ll find it.

We advise looking for loose slates, gaps in fascias and any other potential points of entry that a squirrel could chew or wriggle its way through. By stopping them from the very beginning, you can mitigate the potential damage to insulation, wiring and pipework within your house.

In The Garden

The garden is the area most at risk from squirrel damage. These animals are drawn to vegetables and bulbs, and it doesn’t take them long to decimate a crop. If you value your plants and have started to notice shifty squirrels around the veg patch, we recommend the following DIY solutions before contacting expert squirrel trappers

  • Tree guards – these will help protect valuable trees from having their bark stripped.
  • Cages & netting –durable netting or even metal caging is very effective at keeping squirrels out.
  • Pet companions – squirrels won’t come near your garden if a trusted friend is guarding it. Dogs are great for keeping rodents and squirrels away.

When It’s Time To Call Professional Squirrel Trappers

Sometimes, no matter how hard you’ve tried to deter them yourself, the squirrel population grows out of control. If strawberries are being nibbled without discrimination, cables are being chewed and insulation is disappearing en masse for nesting, then it may be time to call in the professionals.

There’s no shame in contacting squirrel trappers to fix an issue that is starting to grow out of hand. We utilise humane methods and professional techniques to guarantee a controlled removal of squirrels on your property.
