Squirrels can quickly become a real nuisance when they are nesting in your home. The most common place they are found inside a property is in a roof space or behind fascia boards. Squirrels often gain access through a breach in the roof or under the eaves of the property. Even a small hole can be exploited by the squirrel. Once inside they cause damage to the insulation and have a habit of chewing on electrical cables, this can become a fire hazard. Trapping Squirrels in one of our live capture squirrel traps is simple if you can access the area where they are residing. Bait the trap tray with food such as peanuts or broken biscuits then throw a few into the trap entrance and sprinkle a few more around the trap. Before purchasing a trap please consider the welfare or the animal in the trap BY LAW MUST BE CHECKED EVERY DAY AS A MINIMUM. Once caught the squirrel should be humanely dispatched, an air weapon is ideal. Drowning is not an option and could land you in serious trouble. Please only buy a live trap when you have considered these points.
Pestek also provide a professional squirrel control service. If you are in an area we do not cover we should be able to recommend a local professional.
