Grey squirrels have become a nuisance in many areas in recent years, ever since their introduction to the country. As a non-native species, their numbers have rapidly grown because they have very little competition for food. As a result of the increased grey squirrel population, there has also been an increase in the number of people requiring squirrel removal. Grey squirrels are frequently inhabiting attics and lofts, something which most people are unaware of. The presence of grey squirrels in a building is often mistaken for mice or rats, as the signs of scratching sounds and droppings are very similar.
