Are squirrels causing you trouble?
It's no secret that squirrels can be pesky creatures. They're known to invade homes, damage property, and spread disease. So if you're experiencing a squirrel problem, it's important to take action quickly.
Scientists from England introduced squirrels to the United Kingdom in the late 1800s by two scientists from England who wanted to study their habits and weren't planning on releasing them into the wild. At first, it may have seemed like they didn't pose much of a problem, but as time passed, these creatures adapted quite well to life around people and spread rapidly across England. Unfortunately, they can do the same to your home, so before that occurs, ring Crumpsall Squirrel Trapping for the best Squirrel Control plan designed for your home.
Squirrels are now considered an invasive species that can cause extensive damage if left untreated because they have constantly growing front teeth, so they will gnaw on items such as wood beams, telephone lines, electrical wires, and just about anything else they can find in an attempt to file down their teeth. The damage caused by squirrels is expensive and can also pose a serious fire hazard. So before they take a hold on your home, speak to Crumpsall Squirrel Pest Control for help with Getting Rid Of Squirrels.
These pests can be found in various places in and around the home. They will nest in trees, crevices in rocks, and any sheltered location outside. When indoors, they tend to prefer sites such as chimneys, floorboards, crawl spaces, roof spaces and even garages or outbuildings. The above information is based on our experiences, and you should know that they are not constrained to these places.
Some key points to note about squirrels
A grey squirrel is a small, sturdy rodent that can be found throughout the United States and Canada. They have bushy tails, large ears, and sharp teeth. In general, grey squirrels are about the size of a housecat. Males and females look very similar, but males tend to be just a bit larger than females. Grey squirrels live for about two years in the wild.
Squirrels breed twice a year, during spring and during fall. Their gestation period is for about 44 days. A litter of 2-5 young is born. Weaning occurs between 6 and 8 weeks of age and reaches sexual maturity at 6-10 months old. They often eat from garden bird feeders or dig up bulbs and seeds from flower gardens.
Squirrels can carry a variety of diseases, including rabies, tularemia, and plague. They can spread these diseases through their saliva, urine, or faeces. In addition, their droppings and fur can contaminate food.
Only 12 squirrels were sent from England to Ireland as a wedding gift. They escaped and are now responsible for the entire population in Ireland standing in the hundreds of thousands meaning that the single event of the original 12 is responsible for the mass population currently in Ireland, demonstrating further their invasive nature and their ability to adapt, conquer and thrive due to their hardiness.
