Are Squirrels Causing You Problems
The grey squirrel is typically the most troublesome when it comes to squirrels. While all squirrels can be pesky and cause some damage, greys are particularly aggressive in searching for food and shelter. So if you have a problem with grey squirrels on your property, it's crucial to take action before they cause any more damage. Wardle Squirrel Trapping can help you get rid of these pesky critters quickly and effectively.
Common damages to make you want to Get Rid of Squirrels ASAP
Regardless of whether they are inside or outside, squirrels can cause a lot of damage to your property. They can chew through wood, metal, and wiring like telephone cables, electrical wires even ethernet cables, potentially causing fires or electrical shorts. As a result, trees lose their bark and become weaker and more susceptible to disease. They enter homes by chewing on weak exterior areas or by jumping through an open window or door. But the most commonly enter through areas of the roof by gnawing through the valley of your roof to get in. This, in turn, weakens your structure, leaving it vulnerable to moisture from rains due to the leaks caused by these pests.
They are disease carriers.
There is also a concern of squirrels carrying diseases like salmonella and ticks. Salmonella is typically transmitted through the faeces or the urine of animals. The ticks they bring can cause Lyme disease, which has debilitating effects on humans and pets. Wardle Squirrel Pest Control experts can help you get rid of squirrels in your home, which is why you should contact them right away!
Where do squirrels nest
Squirrels typically nest in trees, but they have realized that building their drey inside your property is a lot safer from predators like large birds, dogs and cats. Their nests are typically made of leaves, twigs and moss with a softer lining of grass and feathers. You can also expect to find an average of four baby squirrels in one nest at any given time during the spring nesting season. Female squirrels will breed every year and then raise their young in a nursery nest, which they build before the end of February. The kits (baby squirrels) will live in the nests until autumn when they are large enough to fend for themselves.
By this point in time, you will have had a grey squirrel problem on your hands for nearly an entire year if the litter of baby squirrels has moved into your attic or walls. This is because there can be up to two litters per year, with four babies in each litter who will soon start breeding their kits, leaving you with a home/garden/attic that squirrels have taken over.
How to identify squirrels?
There are several ways that you can identify squirrels on your property. One of the most common ways to identify them is by their colouring. Grey squirrels are typically grey with a white underbelly. You can also tell the type of squirrels by their tail. Grey squirrel tails are long and bushy and sometimes larger than their body size.
