Are squirrels causing you trouble?
A squirrel in your home could spell massive trouble. They have since their entrance into the UK in the late 1800s. They have gone on to become one of the most invasive species known to the British. In fact, a century after they made their introduction, we have gone on to list them as vermin that needs immediate extermination. This is because they generally don't contribute to the ecosystem. If anything, they take away by killing thousands of trees per year by taking the bark off them in search of tree sap making the trees vulnerable to disease and often resulting in death, thus taking away from the ecosystem. Don't worry though, if you see a squirrel on your property, Crompton Fold Squirrel Pest Control is here to help with getting rid of squirrels.
Squirrels are considered vermin due to their destructive nature due to their damage to households. These include chewing through insulated wires, causing fires. They also gnaw on wooden support beams, making them weak. Eventually, they can result in a collapse in the wake of their damage. In addition, they leave holes in your roof, allowing water to flow in on rainy days. The following are just a few things that can occur from their presence. Crompton Fold Squirrel Trapping advises that you treat any possible infestation at the earliest stage possible, as leaving the problem unattended will only allow them to breed further and cost you more in the long run, so make squirrel control a top priority if you see one.
When squirrels nest indoors, they typically build their dreys in the attic, chimneys, crawl spaces, and sheds. When they are nesting outdoors, they will build their dreys in a tree or in another sheltered location like crevices in rocks and the forks in tree branches.

They typically have a long tail, large ears, and bright eyes. Grey squirrels can be found in many different environments, from forests and woodlands to cities and suburbs. They are very active creatures and love to play, which can make them quite entertaining to watch.
They differ from other species of squirrels mainly in size - grey squirrels tend to be larger than other types. Another difference is that males have considerably more teeth than females (40 compared to 28). They use these teeth to crack nuts or defend against predators.
