Are squirrels causing your problems?
Squirrels are one of the most destructive invasive species. They were introduced in the late 1800s into the UK by scientists interested in studying them further, and since then, from a few hundred to millions they have demonstrated how invasive they are. Squirrels are vectors of illness. They aren't just a nuisance because their teeth continuously grow, but also because of their chewing urges. Squirrels frequently chew through electrical wires, copper cables, and telephone lines, causing fires.

You would have noticed this vermin scampering around in parks or gardens running around in trees. This is quite common for them as they like to be elevated from the ground. If your home has a lot of trees and bushes, they may use the ranches to get onto your rooftop. They are also known for their damage to sidings, fascia boards, and the valleys on your roof. They gnaw into compromised spots, making them weaker in the process. This leaves open spaces for the rain to come in. This can cause many issues, most commonly dampness and rot. If you act when you first notice these squirrels, damage can be minimal, so don't wait for it to get worse. Call Firgrove Squirrel Pest Control, and we will help with Getting Rid Of Squirrels.
Squirrels nest in trees, in the crevices of rocks, and in building eaves. Indoors usually make their nest in locations such as attics, garages, crawl spaces, chimneys, and roof spaces. They use a variety of materials to construct their nests, including twigs, leaves, pine needles, bark strips, moss, hair, feathers, and cloth.
Facts about squirrels that are worth noting
The grey squirrel is a small, bushy-tailed rodent that is found throughout much of the United Kingdom. Adults typically weigh between 400 and 600 grams, with males being slightly larger than females. They have characteristic large ears and pointy teeth, and their fur can be mostly black, grizzled black and white, or all white. Grey squirrels can be distinguished from other species by their long tails, which are about one-third of their body length. Again, males and females look remarkably similar. However, males are a little larger and have thicker tails. Grey squirrels typically live for two to three years in the wild.
Squirrels communicate with each other in a variety of ways. They use vocalizations such as chirps, barks and growls, as well as body language such as tail positions, facial expressions and movements. They also use scent markings to leave messages for other squirrels. For example, they will rub their cheeks on tree trunks to deposit their scent, which will tell other squirrels that the tree is an excellent place to find food.
The squirrel can carry several diseases, including salmonella, tularemia, and plague. They can spread these diseases to other animals and people through their saliva, urine, and faeces. They can also contaminate food with their saliva and faeces. Therefore, it is essential to avoid contact with squirrels and to keep food stored securely to prevent contamination.
