Are squirrels causing you problems?
Squirrels are not suitable to have around your home. If you see them early, you can take care of the problem. Originally introduced in the late 1800s, squirrels have been a problem ever since because they are very invasive. Squirrels are destructive and invasive species that spread disease and cause substantial damage once they enter your home. They will gnaw on your rafters and beams, weakening your house's structure. Any squirrels on the property mean trouble, and you should contact Heaton Chapel Squirrel Trapping; at first sight, our technicians are experts at Getting Rid Of Squirrels.
You may often see squirrels scampering around in parks and gardens, and some people may think of them as cute. Though this may partially be the case, many people are ill-informed about the destruction they can cause. They usually enter the property or workplace through the roof. They chew onto rooftops on the weak spots, leaving them holes so water can easily flow through, causing untold water damage. Upon their entry, they will look to make a drey, also known as a squirrel's nest. They will use any materials at their disposal before your situation becomes worse. Give Heaton Chapel Squirrel Pest Control a ring, and we will best guide you on effective Squirrel Control treatment plans.
Squirrels are common for nesting in elevated areas. This often includes your loft spaces, crawl spaces, decking, and chimneys. Unfortunately, they also have a terrible habit of chewing into all sorts of wiring. Most notable is electrical wiring resulting in fire hazards. They also gnaw on water pipes and air conditioning pipes, each of them carrying its own expensive consequences.
The following is some useful information about squirrels.
Grey squirrels are tiny creatures with fluffy, soft fur. They typically have black and white stripes on their tails and smaller eyes in comparison to other squirrels. The size difference between males and females can throw people off as it does not follow the typical order of larger male-smaller females but instead has the males being smaller than the females by about 14%. That said, both genders' tails are long (about 20 inches), providing them with a way to easily travel up trees for food or shelter from predators.
Based on their weight and how strong they are, if one was tugging at an acorn that attaches themselves to a limb, they could break that limb, eventually making it easier for prey to come back down without alerting predators.
Squirrels communicate with each other primarily through vocalizations, body language, and scent. Their vocalizations alert others of danger, solicit help during emergencies, and let others know about food sources. Squirrels use body language to show dominance, submission, or aggression; for example, a dominant squirrel will stand tall, while a submissive squirrel will lower its head. Squirrels also use scent to mark their territory and signal reproductive readiness.
A drey is a squirrel's nest. It is typically a bulky, spherical structure made of twigs, leaves, moss, and bark that the squirrel's line with softer materials like fur, feathers, and wool. The dreys are typically built in trees, but they can also be found in attics, barns, and other buildings.
