Are squirrels causing you problems?
In the Victorian era, squirrels were introduced to England, and they have since shown how invasive they are. Once inside a home, they carry diseases and cause extensive damage when weakening their structure by gnawing on rafters and beams.

Squirrels will usually try to use any opening along the exterior of the home to get in. However, once nothing is available to them, they will move on and chew through weak parts of the house, mainly the rooftops along the valley, making the opening susceptible to water coming through, and this will also allow for other rodents to use that as an access point to get into the home.
After they are done that, they will immediately look to establish a nest. They will use any kind of materials available in your home. They will also chew on any hard objects like pipes and wires, mainly water pipes and electrical cords. This can lead to water damage and, more importantly, fires from them damaging power lines. Squirrels have teeth that grow approximately 6 inches each year, and chewing on hard items helps them to wear it down, so it doesn't get too large.
The ideal places for them to nest are areas with low disturbance, and while they can nest anywhere in the home, they seem to have a preference for areas like under floorboards, deckings, lofts, crawl spaces, and chimneys.
The grey squirrel is a medium-sized, tree-dwelling rodent found throughout Great Britain. These squirrels are characteristically large-eared, have white markings on the tail, and sharp incisors. Their color usually ranges from gray to light brown, but can also be black. Male and female squirrels are similar in size, but males tend to be slightly larger than females. Squirrels' tails are typically about half the length of their bodies, and they use them for balance when climbing. Squirrels generally live for around two years.
It is common for grey squirrels to breed twice annually, usually during the spring and fall. Gestation lasts for around 44 days, and female squirrels typically give birth to two or four young. Newborn squirrels are hairless and weigh just a few grams. Generally, they are weaned at around six weeks old and mature sexually at around one year old.
Tree sap is sought by squirrels by stripping the bark of trees. A negative effect of this is that the trees can be stunted or even killed, which can negatively impact the ecosystem.
The squirrel communicates through vocalizations, body language, and scent marking. When they vocalize, squirrels warn other squirrels of danger, signal aggression or dominance, and call for help when they're in trouble. Using body language, they show dominance, attract mates, and ward off predators. And they use scent marking to mark their territory and identify themselves as part of a family or group.
