Are Squirrels Causing You Problems
Grey squirrels are a significant problem for homeowners in the UK. They can cause significant property damage, and Openshaw Squirrel Trapping is the best company fighting back against these pests. Sightings of grey squirrels have been on the rise in Britain over recent years, with some estimates putting their population as high as 2.7 million strong - that's more than double what it was just five years ago.
This means they're now a much bigger menace than they used to be because they can go into gardens and eat all the plants you carefully nurture there or get into your house and cause a whole lot of havoc. And if you have nesting birds who build their nests near power lines, then grey squirrels can also be a significant threat to them as they're known to eat small birds and bird eggs. What's more, grey squirrels can also spread diseases like squirrel pox and fleas - both of which are dangerous to humans and animals. So suppose you think you have a squirrel problem. In that case, it is essential to contact a professional pest control company like Openshaw Squirrel Trapping.
What to expect from a squirrel infestation
When squirrels get inside, they can cause a lot of damage by chewing on wires, insulation, and other materials. Besides contaminating food, they can also spread diseases to humans and pets. Chewing on electric wires and cables can be a significant problem as it can lead to a fire within your home which can cause extensive damage. They will even chew holes in your attic that will decrease the insulation. Openshaw Squirrel Pest Control has the experience and expertise to quickly and safely get rid of the squirrels speedily and safely.
Ways in which they get inside
Squirrels often get inside homes through openings in the roof, attic, or eaves. They can also get in through chimneys, soffit vents, and gable vents. If there are any cracks or holes in your home's exterior, squirrels will find them and use them to get inside. Hence, it is necessary to hire a Squirrel Control company that knows what steps need to be taken to avoid any reoccurrences.
Why do they come into homes?
There are a few things that can attract squirrels to your property. One is the easy access to food. Squirrels are opportunistic feeders and will take advantage of any food source they can find, from bird feeders to garbage cans. They are also attracted to areas that offer shelter, like your attics, garages, and sheds. If you have a garden with trees and bushes, that's another place where squirrels will feel comfortable setting up camp.
Squirrels are omnivorous animals, which means they eat both plants and animals. Some of their favourite foods include nuts, seeds, fruit, and insects. They also strip bark to eat other parts of trees. Squirrels survive winter by caching food in the fall. Nuts and seeds are buried in the ground, and then they remember where they buried them. It is important not to let these pests infiltrate your home as they are not easy guests to get rid of. Hiring Openshaw Squirrel Trapping is vital to eradicate your squirrel problem.
If you're dealing with a squirrel infestation, it's essential to choose an expert like Openshaw Squirrel Pest Control.
