Are squirrels bothering you?
Squirrels need to be dealt with immediately since they were first introduced in the late 1890s and have gradually become more invasive, from a few hundred to a couple of millions currently. Squirrels spread diseases and are invasive wildlife that, if they get inside your home, can severely damage it, especially to rafters and beams. In addition, because their teeth are continually growing, they gnaw on things to file them down, such as Ethernet cables, phone lines, alarm wires, and electrical cords. Delph squirrel trapping is a service that can assist you in getting rid of squirrels.
These pests can chew through your roof with ease due to their teeth that grow at an average of over 6 inches per year. They will leave open spots for the rain to come in, and this can cause a range of problems on its own. Once they are comfortably inside, they will immediately begin building their home, and this means wood, cloth and plastics in your home will be used. This will all come from the stuff you have in your home; therefore, you should act immediately once you notice a squirrel in your home or business.
They will usually make any unused corner an acceptable home. However, years of experience leads you to believe they will lean more towards areas like attics, between the decking, cavity wall insulation, barns and outbuildings. Before they get comfortable in your home or business, ring Delph Squirrel Pest Control for help with squirrel control.
Few details you should know about squirrels.
Grey squirrels are among the most common types of squirrels in the United Kingdom. They vary in size, with males being slightly larger than females. They have reddish-brown fur, and their tails are typically around 12 inches long. Squirrels have two types of teeth - the incisors at the front of their mouth that they use for gnawing on food, and the molars at the back that they use for grinding it up. Grey squirrels can live for up to six years in the wild.
Grey squirrels breed twice a year - once in winter and once in spring. Gestation lasts for around 44 days, and after giving birth, the young squirrels will stay with their mother for about ten weeks. They are weaned at approximately six weeks old and can start breeding at around one year old. Babies are born blind, but their eyes open around 18 days after birth. Grey squirrels are polygamous, and it is common for one male to mate with three females.
Grey squirrels eat nuts, seeds, flowers and acorns from many different types of trees, including oak, beech and pine. They also eat bird eggs and insects such as caterpillars. Grey squirrels do not hibernate in winter but conserve their energy by staying in their nests.
Squirrels communicate with each other by making a variety of sounds, including chirps, barks and growls. They also use scent marking to leave messages for other squirrels.
Squirrels can be cute, but when they start to invade your home and damage property, they become a nuisance.
