Ellesmere Port Grey Squirrel Control

Some people keep squirrels as pets, while others find squirrels living in their gardens. The difference between how the squirrel found its way to your home will not protect you against the health risks you are exposing yourself to. A pet squirrel will not be happy and caring enough to avoid causing diseases or bites, just like the wild one who has come to live in your backyard will do. They are all rodents, and they live by wild instincts. Hence Ellesmere Port grey squirrel control is essential.


One excellent reason for squirrel removal is the diseases they transfer to human beings. As cute as they may seem, they can cause you thousands of pounds in treatment costs. Your pets, such as dogs and cats, are also at risk of contracting these diseases. Wild squirrels will have lots of fleas and ticks, which are the critical disease vectors in squirrels. They transmit diseases such as:
