Are Squirrels Causing You Problems
If you have a garden, it's important to keep an eye out for squirrels. While they may seem like harmless creatures, they can do a lot of damage to your plants and property. This article discusses some of the risks of having a squirrels drey in your garden. A squirrel's front teeth never stop growing like rats. They can chew through almost anything. This includes thatched or shingled roofs, and once in your attic, they will remove wood from beams and other materials in your attic to construct their nest. These open spaces will allow for rain or dampness to set in. After that, your exposure to damage is much greater, so your best bet would be not to allow them time to reproduce. This is where Abbey Hey Squirrel Trapping comes in. We will ensure we are able to help you with Abbey Hey Squirrel Pest Control.
Where do they nest
Drey is a nest built by squirrels from twigs, leaves and other materials. These dreys are often found in trees or attics. However, they may also be constructed on the ground in gardens and parks where there aren't any natural shelters available for them to use. Squirrels build these nests because they need protection against predators like hawks and foxes, as well as bad weather.
If you have a squirrel drey in your garden, there are several risks that you need to be aware of. First of all, they can damage plants and trees by chewing on them or stripping away their bark, causing irreparable harm to your plants and property, not to mention that they spread diseases like Squirrel Pox Virus, salmonellosis, Lyme disease, tularemia, leptospirosis to other animals. All these conditions spread through saliva and faeces.
The other risk is that these nests may attract more than just one squirrel, as other squirrels will notice that your garden is a safe place to build their own nest on. This can lead to an increase in the number of squirrels in your garden and cause even more damage if you find a nest and try to remove it yourself and there are still babies in there the damage the mother will cause while trying to get to her young is unimaginable.
What grey squirrels eat
Grey squirrels mainly eat seeds and plants buds, shoots, fungi, and flowers and eat insects and birds' eggs and take food from bird feeders in gardens.
Fact: Genetic research has shown that all of the grey squirrels in Ireland are descended from the original 12 animals imported to the island in 1911. This implies that a single event is responsible for the invasive species issue. Currently, they are listed as the second most invasive species in the UK and in Italy, so again, leaving this issue unattended could prove disastrous as they can quickly multiply, creating more stress and will be more costly when the time comes to eradicate them because of the population size.
