Pest Squirrels Can Cause Some Serious Damage to Your Property

One of the main problems with pest squirrels is the amount of damage that they can cause to the timber parts of your property. Squirrels are rodents, and this means that their teeth will continue to grow constantly throughout their lives. They need to keep this growth in check, so their instincts tell them to gnaw on any wood that they can find. In the wild, this will typically mean trees, but when squirrels live near buildings, things like roof timbers and beams present a tempting target to chew on. If left unchecked, pest squirrels can cause a huge amount of damage to buildings, which will then cost a lot of money to repair. The very integrity of the building could be compromised- so it is essential that any unwelcome squirrels in your property are dealt with promptly and efficiently.

This isn’t the only damage that squirrels can cause, though. Since they will blindly chew through anything they can get their hands on, they may end up severing electrical cables, leaving you with no choice but to cover the costs of repairs. In some cases, they may even fall into uncovered cold-water storage tanks and drown. Since squirrels can carry all manner of harmful diseases, this poses a clear risk to the health and hygiene of everyone inside the property.

How Does Squirrel Trapping Work?

The first stage of the squirrel trapping process involves carrying out an in-depth survey of your property to identify the root cause of the pest problem. You may not know that it is squirrels which are causing your issues, or there may be additional pest species present that will also need to be dealt with. When you call Pest Solutions, though, you can rest assured that our professional pest controllers will perform a thorough survey and draw on their expert knowledge to come up with a tailored plan of action to tackle your particular issues. What’s more, these surveys are completely free and come with no strings attached- so you have nothing to lose by contacting us today.

Since squirrels will often enter your property through gaps in the roof in order to chew on the timbers inside, we generally set down traps inside lofts. We only use humane traps that conform to all the necessary government standards so that the squirrels aren’t put under unnecessary distress. The squirrel traps are set up with food inside to bait the pests in before the door seals shut behind them. The traps cannot be opened from the inside, so the captured squirrels cannot cause any more damage to your property.

Our professional pest control technicians will come and check these traps every day for a period of five days- usually Monday to Friday. We will then remove any trapped squirrels that we find inside. That way, you can rest assured that the pests aren’t going to just return once the traps are removed, and again it stops the squirrels being placed in any undue discomfort.

Keep Pest Squirrels Out for Good

Once our five-day squirrel trapping programme is complete, you should find that the present pest problem has been fully dealt with. However, there is still the matter of how the squirrels got into your property in the first place. While the current infestation may be gone, that’s not to say that more squirrels won’t return in the future. For this reason, we highly recommend that squirrel trapping customers also take advantage of our highly effective pest proofing service, too. In the course of our surveys, our technicians will identify where the squirrels may be entering your property. If you choose to utilize our pest proofing service, then we can quickly and easily seal up these entrances for you, to keep your property pest-free in the long term.
