Are squirrels posing issues at home?
As you read this, there is a good chance that a squirrel is around you. They are curious creatures, and they have learned over the years that humans can be a reliable food source. But while squirrels may seem like harmless nuisances, they can actually cause much damage to your home and property if left unchecked. This is why it is essential to know how to deal with squirrels before they become a significant problem. Micklehurst Squirrel Trapping can help you get rid of these pests quickly and efficiently.
Squirrels are a common sight in recreational areas. You often see them running through trees, they are speedy animals, and they have the potential to cause havoc if they gain entry inside the home or office. Squirrels will prefer the inside of your home due to the fact that it provides an abundance of food, shelter, and safety from predators. However, they can enter the home through chimneys, and when there aren't any openings, they will put their evergrowing teeth to good use by gnawing into the weak areas of your roof. This will leave holes and allow water to come in.
Once they are inside, they will nest in areas like deckings, lofts, crawl spaces, and sheds. Because of the need to file down their teeth, they will often chew on hard items like ethernet cables, aircon pipes, plumbing pipes, and power cables. This can lead to malfunctions, internet outages, and fires once they chew on electrical wires. Before the situation gets out of hand, ring Micklehurst Squirrel Pest Control for getting rid of squirrels.
The grey squirrel is a small, bushy-tailed rodent that is found throughout the United Kingdom. It measures 12 inches long, including its tail, and weighs between one and two pounds. Grey squirrels have reddish-brown fur on their backs and sides, along with creamy hair on their bellies. They have black ears and feet and sharp teeth. Male grey squirrels are slightly larger than females, and both sexes have long tails. Squirrels use their tails for balance when climbing or running, as well as for keeping warm in cold weather. Grey squirrels typically live for around six years in the wild.
Squirrels can spread a variety of diseases, many of which are contagious. They can spread diseases through their saliva, urine, and faeces and through contact with their fur. They can also contaminate food sources with their saliva, urine, and faeces. Some of the most common diseases that squirrels spread include rabies, salmonellosis, and leptospirosis.
Squirrels communicate in various ways, including vocalizations, scent-marking with urine and faeces, and by exchanging pine needles, they collect special robes.
The type of communication depends on the sending animal's age, sex, reproductive status, and social class. Adult males tend to be territorial during the breeding season and will aggressively chase away same-aged rivals. Males may also use aggressive displays such as boxing or chasing noticeably smaller conspecifics off a perch a display dominance/supremacy - simply put. It is making what would be traditionally described as "alpha" waves or postures for an alpha male dog in terms of meaning to another squirrel he wants respect from.
