Are Squirrels Causing You Problems
The grey squirrel is a common species of tree squirrel found throughout the United Kingdom. They were introduced by Victorian-era aristocrats who wanted to bring back an exotic game animal. The greys are fierce competitors for food and habitat, which has led to population declines among local species and local extinctions in some regions. They also cause damage to trees and gardens.
These creatures can cause extensive damage to your home and garden and can also be a health hazard. If you have grey squirrels on your property, it is vital to contact Peel Green Squirrel Trapping for safe removal. In addition, we offer various services to help protect your property from these pesky rodents!
What to expect from a Squirrel infestation
The damages that grey squirrels can cause throughout your home are significant. Among other things, grey squirrels chew through electrical wiring, damage roofs, and chew through wooden beams, causing extensive damage to your property. Squirrels are also regarded as a fire hazard because they can easily chew through electrical wires, which can start a fire. They can also contaminate food stocks with their urine and faeces, leading to the spread of diseases. Therefore, it is essential to contact Peel Green Squirrel Pest Control if you suspect that you have a grey squirrel infestation on your property.
How do squirrels get inside your home?
There are a few ways that squirrels can get inside your home. They can climb up the exterior of your home and find their way in through an open window or door, or they can find their way in through an opening in your roof. They may also try to enter through your chimney. If there are no available openings for them, they will gnaw their way into your home! Once they're inside, they will search for food and a place to nest.
Nests can often be found in the attic, walls, or any other sheltered spot. Unfortunately, they will also search for food and can cause a lot of damage to your property in the process.
Why are squirrels nesting in homes?
It is primarily because humans offer squirrels a bounty of food that makes them attracted to their properties. Squirrels will eat just about anything, from nuts and seeds to fruits and vegetables. So if you have a garden or live in an area with lots of trees, you're likely to have squirrels visit your property frequently. This is why contacting a Peel Green Squirrel Trapping expert is very crucial.
What do squirrels eat?
In the wild, squirrels mostly eat nuts, fruits, and seeds. However, they will also eat insects, bird eggs, and other small animals. In urban areas, squirrels often scavenge for food in garbage cans and gardens. By chewing the bark and eating the leaves of trees and other plants, they can also cause damage.
Female grey squirrels breed twice a year, and the babies are born about six weeks after mating. After eight weeks with their mother, the babies are ready to leave for their own homes.
Grey squirrels typically weigh about a pound and a half and measure about 18 inches long, including the tail. The fur is typically grey or light brown, and they have black ears and white markings on their face. Their teeth are very sharp, which can be used to crack nuts, and their tails are bushy. Male and female grey squirrels look very similar, but males are typically larger than females.
Choosing an expert such as Peel Green Squirrel Pest Control is imperative if you are dealing with squirrels. The use of DIY products will not resolve the issue - this could lead to further damage and even more squirrels entering your home. Instead, contact us for fast and effective removal services as soon as you notice any signs of a squirrel infestation.
