Are Squirrels Causing You Sleepless Nights
Squirrels are a common problem in many parts of the world. They can be very destructive, and they also carry diseases. Squirrels can be removed in various ways, but the most effective methods are often professional ones. Squirrels can cause problems with many aspects of your home, not just the exterior. Squirrels are known to chew on wood and other items due to the fact that their front teeth never stop growing, so you will need to make sure that they cannot get access to these areas and if you are unsure where they are, you should contact Bowdon Squirrel Pest Control for expert help.
Pests like squirrels gain entry into your home through numerous ways, including opened doors and windows through the holes in the roofs around the home leading inside. They can nest virtually anywhere around the house but have preferences towards attics, crawl spaces, garages, deckings, outbuildings and even sheds. Beware that they are not confined to these locations and can move into any unused corner.
Squirrels are notorious for damaging items around your household. Not only do they cause destruction in your garden, but if they get into your home, you may suffer severe consequences as they can strip wooden items to the point of weakening them and potential collapse once they chew into electrical wires; your goods at home can be affected due to power surges and worse it can cause fires meaning your property might burn down. These pests also affect your cavity wall insulation by making weak spots. As a result, they make the insulation lose effectiveness, so once a squirrel is noticed, it should be a high priority to get rid of them, and that's where Bowdon Squirrel Trapping comes in. We are the experts in Getting Rid Of Squirrels.
How quickly can grey squirrels mate, and how many babies can they have
Grey squirrels are around 12-18 inches long, including their tail. They weigh around 1-2 pounds. And they can have up to six babies in each litter. They have grey fur, although they can have a reddish tan to their fur during the winter. They have black ears and a white stripe on their face. Their underparts are also white, and they have a black tail. Grey squirrels breed twice a year- once in the winter and once in the summer. Gestation lasts for 44 days, and after being born, young squirrels are weaned for about ten weeks. Young squirrels are able to reproduce at about six months of age.
Squirrels are born naked and blind with thin grey/white fur on top of their heads. The baby squirrel is known as a kitten or an infant. Newborns stay in the nest with their mother for three months before venturing out on their own. At around six months old, they reach maturity. Grey Squirrels mate between January and March each year. It is common to see more squirrel activity near bird feeders than normal.
