Squirrel Removal Charlotte

The need for squirrel removal is pretty common in Charlotte.  While many of them nest in trees, some like to make their homes in attics. Removal of squirrels in the attic is important even if it’s an animal as seemingly harmless as a squirrel. Squirrels carry parasites and do quite a bit of property damage too.

Risk of Squirrels in Your Home

They also pose a minor risk of rabies exposure.  Additionally, they tend to create holes that are high on the roofline where the average homeowner can’t reach it.   If you think you have squirrels, you’ll likely need a wildlife pest control company in Charlotte that specializes in wildlife removal to help. They thrive in suburban environments and are very agile animals.

If you have an animal in the attic that requires wildlife pest control in Charlotte, please book a free inspection online or contact us. For more information about squirrels and the dangers they pose to property and health, please visit SCDNR

Signs of squirrel infestation

A squirrel infestation is relatively easy to spot because of the many observable signs. Some of which include:

  • Chewed wood, wires, and cables
  • Chirping sounds from the attic
  • Thumping sound due to fast movement in the attic or chimney
  • Presence of long, round droppings
  • Sighting of squirrels coming in or out of your building/property
  • Gnaw marks… and lots more.

Unknown to us, some pigeons had made our attic their home for years. The waste they had accumulated was downright disgusting - and, as I would soon discover, a severe health risk. Anyways, we only noticed the problem when I went to the attic to trace a leaky pipe. I was shocked by the amount of bird waste I saw. I promptly called this company, and they sent technicians to perform a full attic restoration. After they were done, you could not tell that I was dealing with a severe bird problem just the previous day. I was pleased with their service, and the price was worth it!

Excellent service. Communicated well and eliminated the mole problem in my yard which was most important to me. The people were very informative and nice to talk with. They were prompt and came when scheduled. The service was expensive which is my only negative but all other aspects of my experience were positive.

Is it a squirrel in the attic in Charlotte?

As a homeowner, it may be difficult to know what type of animal in the attic you have.   After all, you don’t usually see them (although sometimes you will!).  Most homeowners will simply call a company fore wildlife in attic removal but take the wildlife pest control company’s word for it that it’s squirrel.   

There are, however, some pretty common symptoms that can help the home or business owner in Charlotte determine that they need squirrel removal and not something else. First, the scratching and scampering is only in the attic or high up.  Scratching in the walls or crawlspace is not usually a squirrel.   Secondly, the scampering is right around sunup or sundown. 

The most unique symptom for squirrels though is the “knock” test.   If you knock on the area that the squirrel is in, it will run off.   It is the only animal in attics that does that.   If you think you need squirrel removal in Charlotte, please book a free inspection online or contact us. 

Our Squirrel Removal Process

Do you live in Savannah, Georgia, or Jacksonville, Florida, dealing with a squirrel infestation problem? Read on to learn about our proven process for squirrel removal at Metro Wildlife and Pest Control.

Thorough inspection

Every squirrel removal process begins with a thorough inspection to identify the source and extent of the problem. The attic, chimney, porch, deck, and other building parts are inspected to discover how the animals are getting in and the damages they have wreaked. Only then can a robust removal plan be designed and implemented.

Decontamination and repairs

Squirrels leave lots of waste behind. From droppings to nesting materials, these wastes must be removed. Ensure appropriate gloves are worn to prevent decontamination. After that, the entire area should be disinfected with a powerful enzyme-based cleaner to kill all bacteria and pathogens. Only then should repairs be made to preserve the structural integrity of the building.

Get rid of the squirrel

Over the years, Metro Wildlife and Pest Control professionals have developed several methods for squirrel removal. Our solution is usually custom to perfectly meet your specific needs. Some of the most common methods for squirrel removal include:

Exclusion: Exclusion is usually the best method for squirrel removal because it is noninvasive. However, it is most effective for adult squirrels living in enclosed spaces. All entry holes to the area are sealed, except one. An exclusion device is installed in the last hole. Once the squirrels leave through the hole, they cannot get back in.

Trapping: Trapping and relocation are best for dealing with outdoor squirrels or nursing squirrels. Peanut butter is usually the best bait for squirrel traps. Pups can also be used as bait to trick their mother into the trap. Once captured, the nuisance animal can then be relocated to at least 10 miles from the property.

Repellents: Repellents are only effective after getting rid of easy access to food and shelter on your property. Common homemade squirrel repellents include capsaicin, peppermint oil, garlic, and rosemary, among many others. Note that repellents need to be continuously reapplied to remain effective.
