Do squirrels have their way in your home?
Squirrels have long been a nuisance after their introduction into the United Kingdom in 1870. They are, since 1981, considered vermin that need to be eradicated with the utmost urgency. You may be one of those people that see squirrels as cute or adorable. While that may be partially true, the following information will enlighten you on the dangers they pose. We also provide you with the best solution to your issues by ringing Bromley Cross Squirrel Pest Control for assistance with Getting Rid Of Squirrels.
Squirrels, when outdoors, go about their business stripping tree bark looking for sap which is a source of food for them. Although they do hurt the ecosystems by damaging a large number of trees by weakening them or causing them to have deformed growth, they often weaken them to the point in which they die. They use these same trees to gain entry onto your rooftop, and once they see no entry points, they will make one by gnawing on weaker spots until they are in. Squirrels will then start chewing wooden objects for materials for their Drey (their home). This will, in turn, make your wooden structures weak and potentially cause them to collapse.
They unknowingly do this due to their incessant need to gnaw on items because their evergrowing teeth need filing, and this sometimes includes your electrical wires, alarm and CCTV cables resulting in your systems tripping fires or even getting totally disabled, so, therefore, there should be no hesitancy with regards to speaking to Bromley Cross Squirrel Trapping for the best Squirrel Control measures.
Some facts about Squirrels to help you on your journey of knowledge about them
Squirrels nest in trees, often building their dreys in the crooks of branches. They may also build their nests on the ground, in a hollow log or a hole in a tree. When they are in your home, they may build their dreys in the attic, in a chimney, or behind a loose board on the wall and in between your cavity walling.
The grey squirrel is a small rodent that is native to the United States and Canada. They are typically about 15-20 inches in length, including their tail, and weigh between 1-3 pounds. Reddish-brown fur covers its back and sides, with white fur on its belly, chest, throat and chin. Grey squirrels have large ears and bushy tails.
Several diseases are carried by grey squirrels, some of which can infect humans. Salmonella, tularemia, plague, Squirrel pox, and leptospirosis are among these diseases. This is often done through scratching or contact through urine and faeces; if you are unfortunate to encounter such an incident, you should wash your hands thoroughly with hot water and soap and afterwards go straight to the emergency room for medical treatment.
