Are squirrels keeping you up at night?
Squirrels are not welcome in the house and must be removed as soon as possible. In the late 1890s, they were first introduced, and their prevalence has fluctuated from a few hundred to several million over time. Squirrels spread germs and are an invasive species, posing a significant risk of structural damage once they enter your home. It is their nature to chew on anything they can get their mouths around, such as Ethernet cables, phone lines, alarm wires, and electrical cables. They even get between the cavity wall insulation, making those parts not as effective as the rest, in turn driving up your electric bill.
Getting Rid Of Squirrels is vital for any homeowner who has seen squirrels running up trees or scratching at windows looking for ways inside. It may seem like there's no hope for some homeowners, but squirrel control can help. You can call Didsbury Squirrel Trapping to evict the squirrels.
These pests can build a home almost anywhere outdoors. They will nest in crevices between rocks, in the fork of ranches and any sheltered location that is elevated from the ground, which provides them security from predators. Indoors they will usually nest in loft spaces, crawl spaces, roof spaces, chimneys, garages, barns and outbuildings. The locations are endless, and they can use any quiet corner to build a home, so once you notice one, don't look at it as cute fuzzy and cuddly instead, ring Didsbury Squirrel Pest Control because of that one squirrel. Later on, you could face a possible infestation.
The following information is gathered to help you understand these pests better.
The common grey squirrel is a rodent, an omnivore and will eat anything essentially. It lives in trees across North America and Europe. It stores food for the winter; its tail helps with balance as it learns to scamper from tree to tree. The male squirrel is typically twice the size of his female counterpart, but they are easy to tell apart: males have fluffy white chests while females have porcelain black ones.
Squirrels communicate with each other through chattering and tail-raising.
Generally, squirrel chatter is meant to claim or defend territory either at places where nuts are stored in the ground, in trees or on the ground. When an intruder appears, a squirrel will often stop what it's doing and crane its neck up for sudden bursts of high frequency "chirps," about four per second. This territorial behaviour can also be done by one squirrel calling out to another from the neighbouring territory that is approaching too closely. Tail raising is also used as a form of communication because it functions much like when dogs lift their tails when they're happy and contented with their surroundings.
Squirrels can be carriers of a number of diseases, which can spread to both humans and other animals. The most common illnesses that squirrels carry are plague, tularemia, mange and scabies. Also, squirrels possess the potential to contaminate food by contact with their saliva or urine. The droppings they leave on the ground can also cause disease.
