Are squirrels causing you problems?
Squirrels are a menace. They are invasive and destructive, transmitting diseases and gnawing through everything from our telephone wires to the beams in our homes. And they're all over the place! They number more than 2 million nationwide. Squirrels were introduced to England as early as 1891, and since then, they have gone on to become the second most invasive species known to Great Britain. Unfortunately, it won't take them long to do the same for your home. However, this can be a worry of the past if you act immediately upon noticing them and speak to Haigh Squirrel Trapping for a custom-made Squirrel Control treatment plan.
Squirrels will try to use any open entry point for access. If there is none available, they will put their sharp and continuously growing teeth to good use by gnawing into your roof for a spot to get in. This will make vulnerable spots prone to water seeping in. This on its own brings a lot of issues.
Squirrels are known for their destruction inside and outside, and this is well-substantiated as they will go through your home insulated wires, causing loss of network and, in some cases, fire if they get to your electrical cables. Therefore, getting rid of squirrels early on is the key to avoiding an infestation.
Squirrels are found in many places across the household. From years of experience, we have found they prefer areas like sheds, cavities in your roof spaces, and your cavity wall insulation. Once they get in there, any spots they nest in will be less effective and in return, drive up your electric bill. To avoid this call Haigh Squirrel Pest Control.
