Are squirrels causing you problems?
Squirrels can be a big problem for your home. They were brought to this country late in the 19th century, and since then, they have demonstrated how invasive they can be. There are now millions of them. A squirrel can carry disease, and it is an invasive species. Besides causing damage to your house, they can weaken the structure of your house by getting into the rafters and beams.
Squirrel removal is important for homeowners who want to protect their property from these pests. There are many different ways of removing them, but trapping is by far the most effective way of getting rid of squirrels permanently. The Kersal Squirrel Trapping team has been operating for more than ten years, servicing all areas within Cheshire and surrounding areas, including Manchester.
Squirrels are very invasive creatures. They proved this after reproducing rapidly and multiplying to now be counted in the millions. A single female squirrel can quickly turn your home into a breeding ground, and this will result in damages that you would not even begin to imagine. They will use their front teeth as weapons to gnaw into all sorts of sturdy objects, including aircon pipes, water pipes, soffits, and most other wooden support structures, making them structures weak to the point of collapse or even causing severe water damage, even electrical shorts or fires after the bite into electrical cables.

Squirrel facts that you should know
Many people are familiar with grey squirrels, which are common in many regions of England. They are typically about 18-24 inches long, including the tail, and weigh between 1-2 pounds. Most of their fur is a grizzled light to dark grey, but they have white patches on their chest and belly. Their hairless ears are prominent, and they have black eyes and teeth. As a rule of thumb, males are somewhat larger than females, and males' tails are about twice as long as females'. A grey squirrel can live up to ten years in the wild.
Squirrels nest in trees, in the crevices of rocks, and in building eaves. Indoors, they usually build their nest above or on roofs, in garages, crawl spaces, chimneys, roof spaces. They construct their nests out of leaves, twigs, and bark. Squirrels are very active animals and spend a lot of time running and jumping. They are also great climbers and can often be seen scaling tall trees.
Squirrels communicate through a variety of vocalizations, including whistles, chirps, and barks. In addition, they communicate with their bodies using posture and tail movements.
According to a recent study, squirrels cost the UK economy 50 million pounds per year. This is because they damage property, steal food, and spread diseases.
Squirrels can carry a variety of diseases, some of which can be passed on to humans. One such disease is Lyme disease, which is a deadly virus that affects the brain and nervous system. Lyme disease is spread through the saliva of an infected animal and can be contracted through a bite or scratch. Also, it can be contracted from the mucous membranes or open wounds of an infected person.
Another disease that squirrels can carry is tularemia, which is a bacterial infection. Tularemia is spread through contact with an infected animal's blood, urine, or faeces. It can also be spread through contact with contaminated food or water.
