Squirrels Removal

Although squirrels are arguably one of the cutest animals, their destructive capabilities make them any homeowner’s worse nightmare.

Behavior & Risk of Squirrels

Squirrels are fast and agile, with strong teeth. The three species of squirrels prevalent in the southeastern region of the United States include eastern gray, fox squirrel, and southern flying squirrel. Some of the significant problems they cause for residents include:

  • 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.

Why do you have a squirrel infestation?
Squirrels have learned to adapt to human settlements because of easy access to food and shelter.

Garden, trashcans, pet food, and bird feeder provide squirrels with the added nutrition they need. That’s why they infest properties to access these accessible sources of food.

Living spaces – like the attic, chimney, or under the house – provide safety and warmth for squirrels to live and even raise their young. They will break into such places to build their nest if given the opportunity.


Preventing reentry

After getting rid of squirrels, you must put measures to ensure they don’t come back. Some things to bear in mind include:
Eliminate easy access to food. This involves securing your trash cans, taking pet food indoors, cleaning up under your bird feeder, and more.
Eliminate easy access to shelter. This involves making sure no vulnerable spots around your property squirrels can break in through.

Our Squirrel Removal Process

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.
