Squirrels may be more socially-accepted than their rodent cousins, but they can be just as destructive to a residential home. By nature, squirrels must constantly gnaw to dull the rapid growth of their front teeth. Their incessant chewing habit can wreak costly havoc on the walls, wires, and wooden structures of your home. However annoying and destructive the presence of squirrels in and around your home may be, the idea of squirrel extermination can seem like overkill. Therefore, here are a few humane alternatives that can be effective at removing squirrels.
Humane Squirrel Deterrent Methods
Non-lethal squirrel removal methods include:
Removing food sources
A good start at removing squirrels from your property is to make it less inviting to the furry critters. Remove any bird feeders that often attract more squirrels than birds. Also take any pet food bowls inside the home and tightly seal all trash cans.
Trimming back vegetation
Remove any overhanging limbs that grant squirrels easy access on and off your roof.
Sealing off entry points
Check your attic for any exposed access points that a squirrel could penetrate and seal them off.
If squirrels have accessed your home and begun nesting your attic and walls, rely on Critter Control® of Orlando to help with safe and effective squirrel removal services.
