Are squirrels causing you problems?
Squirrels are not welcome in the home and should be dealt with as soon as possible. They were introduced during the late 1890s, and since then, they have demonstrated how invasive they are, from a few hundred to now millions of squirrels across Great Britain. Squirrels transmit illnesses and are an invasive species once they enter your property. They will cause significant damage, particularly to rafters and beams, by gnawing on them. Their front teeth never stop growing. Therefore their teeth never stop growing. Gnawing on electrical wires or Ethernet cables is a common practice among them, which can lead to fires resulting in your home being reduced to ashes. Darcy Lever Squirrel Trapping will be most effective for Getting Rid Of Squirrels when the problem is treated in the early stages.
Squirrels will usually try to enter the home via the roof, and they will chew through shingled roofs or even thatched rooftops to make their entrance. Unfortunately, this leaves your home open to rainfall resulting in excessive water damage along with rot and dampness. They are not picky and will use any corner of your home with the least amount of disturbance, but they do prefer areas like attics, crevices, chimneys, decking, and even cavity wall insulation. This will, in turn, drive up your electric bill because it will make the insulation less effective in certain parts.
Identification and behaviour patterns
Grey Squirrels are small rodents that resemble tree squirrels. They only get bigger than 6-7 inches in length and can weigh roughly 1-2 lbs. Their body appearance is typically a light grey with dark on their upperparts, paws and tail. One distinguishable feature is their ears which are large at the top but loop back over the rest of the ear like worn down fingers. The fur grows continuously but does not become thicker after moulting as human hair would; this means it's always spotted with wear marks from brushing against branches as they're scampering through trees. Adult males have larger teeth than females do to aid in fighting other males during mating season, while females need lower teeth for chewing wood because they eat primarily bark instead of seeds.
Squirrels communicate mainly by vocalizing and by using body language. They have a large vocabulary of vocalizations, including a range of whistles, chirps, barks and clicks. Squirrels also use their tails to communicate; for example, a squirrel who is feeling playful may wag its tail vigorously. Additionally, the way a squirrel positions its ears can indicate its mood or intent.
Among the diseases squirrels can carry are plague, tularemia, and salmonella. Viruses can be transmitted to humans and other animals by biting them or by contaminating food. A squirrel bite or scratch will require medical treatment and more so if your immune system is weaker than normal. They can even spread diseases between their own species or the native species.
