Are squirrels making your home their own?
Squirrels can be a problem for your home. They must be dealt with early because if you don't, they will keep multiplying. Squirrels were introduced in the late 1800s, and since then, they have shown how invasive they are by increasing in number from a few hundred to now a few million. Squirrels can transmit diseases, and they are an invasive species. Once they get into your home, they will cause extensive damage, especially to rafters and soffits, which weakens their structure since their front teeth never stop growing. They will chew on items to file them down. This often includes Ethernet cables, telephone wires, alarm wires, and electrical wires - which can cause fires. Edgeley Squirrel Trapping encourages you to act on the first sighting.

Squirrels are interesting creatures that can be found in many different places. They like to nest in trees, rocks, and building eaves. They also like to build their nests indoors in locations such as attics, garages, crawl spaces, chimneys, and roof spaces. Unfortunately, they will also nest in cavity walls reducing their effectiveness in the places they are nesting, consequently driving up your electric bill.
Please read the following information to be clued up about them.
The Grey Squirrel is easily identifiable by a white chin and a pink nose, with the rest of its body grey. Its ears are furry and very fluffy but not huge in size. The muzzle of this cute animal has large incisors that form strong teeth for chewing on nuts and other plants that it eats. Its tail is typically thin enough to allow another squirrel to run alongside it without being burdened or slowed down too much by the extra weight coming behind.
The female will grow about 5 inches long from head to the base of the spine, while males are usually 3 inches shorter than females when fully grown. Grey squirrels are polygamous and mate in late winter/early spring when it comes to breeding. It takes about 44 days for a baby squirrel to be born, and upon birth, baby squirrels are blind, deaf, and nearly hairless. They weigh around 1/10th of an ounce and are weaned at approximately eight weeks old. Sexual maturity takes place at about six months.
Squirrels can strip the bark of trees in search of tree sap. This can have a negative impact on the ecosystem, as it can stunt the growth of trees or even kill them.
