Squirrel infestations typically begin in your yard and could eventually extend into your home. A squirrel family’s favorite room is the attic, where they use insulation for nesting material and chew on wiring and wood to keep their teeth short and sharp. These cute but always unwanted house guests gain entrance into your home by finding small holes and cracks leading from the outside of your home to the inside.
Like other rodents, squirrels are wily creatures that can squeeze their furry bodies through openings three times smaller than their bodies. If you see squirrels racing up and down trees in your yard and have never checked your home’s exterior for inconspicuous cracks, chances are you may have squirrels in the attic.
How is Squirrel Removal Performed?
The technicians here at Critter Control® of West Palm Beach remove squirrels from buildings using humane trapping methods that safely capture squirrels. After trapping squirrels, we take them to a wooded area where we release them into the wild.
Removing squirrels from your property may take more than a few days, especially if you don’t take action and contact Critter Control® as soon as you find squirrels nesting in your attic or overpopulating your property. They breed quickly and are hardy rodents. As non-stop chewers and voracious consumers of anything edible, two or three families of squirrels can wreak total havoc on your home’s interior, exterior, and yard.
Once we have eliminated your squirrel infestation, we will put effective preventive measures in place so that your property is protected from future squirrel invasions. Placing mesh screen over vents and chimneys, sealing exterior openings into your home and trimming tree branches overhanging roofs are just a few things we can do to keep squirrels from re-infesting homes and commercial buildings.
Critter Control® of West Palm Beach strongly advises against trying to trap squirrels by yourself. Like other rodents, squirrels carry diseases, parasites and may attack and bite you if cornered. Get professional, effective rodent removal services today by calling Critter Control® at 561-274-0224.
