Squirrels are agile animals and are good at climbing almost anywhere which makes them tricky to eliminate using DIY techniques. Therefore, enlisting the help of a professional for squirrel removal can be necessary.
While squirrels will most likely not contaminate food as rats and other rodents do, they will drive you mad with their noise, damage wires and put your house at risk of fires. Their rapid movements will also deny you precious sleeping hours, and they will also scatter waste all over the attic and bore holes in various parts of the building. This damages will lower the value of your house and give the roof an unattractive appearance, all the more reasons to have them removed and prevent them from coming back to live in your house.
There are three common species of squirrels. These include the Northern Flying Squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus), Eastern Gray Squirrel (Sciurus Carolinensis) and Douglas Squirrel (Tamiasciurus douglasii). The Northern Flying Squirrels are the rarest and most nice looking of the three species. The Eastern Gray Squirrel, on the other hand, is usually common in urban areas where there are imported nut trees. These are the most notorious species. Douglas squirrel or the chickaree and pine squirrel is the most common and is a native of these parts of the world. It is also the noisiest of all with relentless whistling and squeaking sounds.
There are less common species known as the Red Squirrel and Western Grey Squirrel. These two species will rarely infest your home. However there are few cases of their invasion in Washington that have been reported in the recent past. Most of the time, it is the female squirrel that will invade your house in search of a place to shelter its young one. The method of removing squirrels is the same regardless of the type of squirrel in your house.
There is no poison that you can use to kill squirrels. Therefore, there is no easy way of removing them except blocking their entry and trapping them. Jack Russell Wildlife Control has all the expertise and experience needed to eliminate the squirrel menace in your home. I will first ensure that I have reduced the chances of the squirrel accessing your home through the attic, crawl space and basement by removing logs stacked against the walls, repairing cracks in the foundational wall, trimming tree branches that overhang near the roof line and sealing all entry points using concrete and metal. I will also strengthen the weak points of your house to prevent squirrels from coming back to eat through the material. The next step after concealing their entry points is to trap them using either the one-way door or a trap.
