Squirrel Control in Epping

Can Squirrels Cause Damage?

Squirrels in Epping, consisting primarily of the commonly seen gray squirrel, can create issues for homeowners and businesses alike. The gray squirrel, particularly, has become dominant and widespread, often causing problems. One of the major issues caused by squirrels is damage to buildings. Making use of their strong teeth and insatiable need to gnaw, they can chew through wood, insulation, electrical wiring, and other building materials, leading to significant damage and potential fire hazards. Garden damage can be a big concern when it comes to squirrels. They commonly raid gardens, feasting on fruit, vegetables, and bird feeding stations. Squirrels can pull up and consume freshly planted bulbs and seeds, destroy flowers and ornamental plants, and disturb bird nests.

What Attracts Squirrels?

Squirrels are attracted to residential and commercial properties for various reasons. They supply warmth, protection, and shelter that are attractive to squirrels. Lofts, chimneys, and crawl spaces are especially appealing places to build a nest. Additionally, squirrels are drawn to food sources. Gardens with readily available food such as bird feeders, fruit trees, and vegetable patches can entice squirrels. They are also drawn to open rubbish bins or icorrectly sealed food bins.
