Will Squirrels Damage My Property?

Squirrels in Essex, made up largely the common gray squirrel,  they can cause issues for both residential areas and businesses. The gray squirrel, specifically, is now dominant and widespread, and is known for causing issues. One of the serious problems created by squirrels is property damage. Using their strong teeth and natural instinct to gnaw, they can chew through wood, insulation, electrical wiring, and other building materials, leading to costly damage and potential fire risks. Damage to the garden can be a huge issue when it comes to squirrels. They commonly invade gardens, feasting on fruit, vegetables, and bird feeding stations. Squirrels can dig up and eat freshly planted bulbs and seeds, destroy flowers and ornamental plants, and disturb bird nests.

What Attracts Squirrels?

Squirrels are drawn to homes and businesses for a number reasons. They provide warmth, protection, and shelter that are attractive to squirrels. Lofts, chimneys, and crawl spaces are particularly appealing nesting sites. Furthermore, squirrels are attracted to food sources. Gardens with readily available food such as bird feeders, fruit trees, and vegetable patches can entice squirrels. They also gravitate to open rubbish bins or icorrectly sealed food bins.

How To Remove Squirrels in Essex

Squirrel Control Specialists such as Tracker Pest Control employ several techniques to remove squirrels permanently. Exclusion is one of the most effective approaches, where we identify and seal off entry points like gaps in the roof, vents, or damaged brickwork. Trapping is another common method. Humane traps are strategically placed to capture the squirrels alive, allowing them to be safely released in a suitable location away from human habitation.
