Grey squirrels will occasionally enter buildings and set up home. As they are excellent climbers they often find it no problem to climb up onto our roofs and gain access under the eaves or even chew through fascias and soffits. The damage done by squirrels can be significant. They will chew roof timbers, guttering, fascias, wires and cables, which can cause fires.
We are specialists in squirrel control and use a variety of traps to eradicate squirrels. If you are unsure as to whether you have a squirrel infestation, then arrange a rodent inspection with us. Our qualified rodent expert will conduct a thorough property survey and make suggestions for treatment and proofing.
Grey squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis) are rodents, just like rats and mice, and as such have constantly growing teeth that they use to gnaw. This gnawing will cause significant damage should a squirrel enter your home or business.
If a squirrel decides to make a nest (drey) in your loft, it sometimes drags a large amount of insulation into a pile during its construction.
If they invade the loft they will cause a significant amount of noise as they run, climb, jump and chew.
Grey squirrels can carry the squirrel pox virus, which while being harmless to themselves, is lethal when transmitted to red squirrels.
