Will Squirrels Damage My Property?

Squirrels in Loughton, consisting primarily of the more common gray squirrel, can cause issues for homeowners and businesses alike. The gray squirrel, in particular, has become dominant and widespread, often causing problems. One of the major issues created by squirrels is property damage. Making use of their robust teeth and insatiable need 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 another concern when it comes to squirrels. They are known to invade gardens, feeding on fruit, vegetables, and bird feeding stations. Squirrels can turn up and eat newly planted bulbs and seeds, destroy flowers and ornamental plants, and disturb bird nests.

What Attracts Squirrels?

Squirrels are attracted to homes and businesses for various reasons. These buildings provide warmth, protection, and shelter that are attractive to squirrels. Lofts, chimneys, and crawl spaces are particularly inviting nesting sites. Additionally, squirrels are enticed by food sources. Gardens with a good supply of food such as bird feeders, fruit trees, and vegetable patches can entice squirrels. They are also drawn to open rubbish bins or poorly sealed food bins.

How To Remove Squirrels in Loughton

Squirrel Control Specialists such as Tracker Pest Control call on several methods to remove squirrels permanently. Exclusion is one of the most well known approaches, where we reveal and block entry points like cracks 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.
