Are squirrels causing you a problem?
Squirrels should not be allowed to run loose in the house since they can harm property and create a nuisance. They must be disposed of swiftly. They have proliferated in numbers so much that now it is estimated that they have reached between a few million. Squirrels are disease spreaders, and if they get inside your property, they will cause a lot of damage.
Because their front teeth never cease growing, they will gnaw on materials to file them down. This includes telephone lines, power lines, and electrical cables resulting in sparks and fires, so just imagine for a small creature like this, you could potentially lose your home. Before things get out of hand, give Flixton Squirrel Pest Control a ring. We can best advise you.
Squirrels will look for the easiest opening in your home to enter, and once they can't find one, they will move onto the chimney area and rooftop. They will chew into the vulnerable parts of the roof, making them weaker and prone to water damage. Once they find a way in, they will start to build a nest and will use any materials they can find. They usually nest in elevated areas like lofts, chimneys, roof spaces, decking, and cavity wall insulation. Once they get into the insulation, they will make the parts they are nesting in less effective and will automatically drive up your electric bill, so, in a nutshell, you need to act quickly once you notice these creatures by calling Flixton Squirrel Trapping for the best Squirrel Control treatments to help with Getting Rid Of Squirrels.
Important information about grey squirrels
The grey squirrel is a medium-sized (10 inches long), grey-haired creature with a bushy tail and large ears. Grey squirrels have razor-sharp claws on their front paws, which they use for climbing trees to find nuts and store them in small areas of the tree called caches. The best time to see one of these creatures is during spring, when they are building new nests or mating in June and July.
Squirrels possess an excellent sense of smell and can detect food from up to 50 feet away. They also have amazing reflexes; some varieties can jump up thirty feet! A male grey squirrel will be about 10% bigger than a female – it weighs roughly 7 ounces more than her!
Squirrels communicate with one another through a variety of different means. These methods include sound, sight, body language, and scent.
Squirrels make five main sounds to communicate with others: chattering teeth, screeching/shrieking, squeak/squawk (made when jumping), growl (huffing), and hissing. In addition, they may use visual communication such as tail-wagging or tail twitching to signal friendliness or aggression, respectively. Body language is also used as a form of communication where the animal's posture signals emotions like fear or anger; this includes flattening their ears against their head for intimidation purposes.
Finally, squirrels also use scent marking to indicate territory boundaries.
Grey squirrels breed twice a year, once in late winter/early spring and again in midsummer. Gestation lasts around 44 days, and upon birth, baby squirrels are blind, deaf, and covered in a thin layer of fur. They weigh around 1/4 ounce at birth and are weaned at around 7-8 weeks old. Young squirrels stay with their parents until they are around 10-12 weeks old, after which they are ready to start breeding themselves.
