Will Squirrels Damage My Property?

Squirrels in Theydon Bois, represented primarily by the more common gray squirrel, can cause issues for homeowners and businesses alike. The gray squirrel, particularly, has become dominant and widespread, and is known for causing issues. One major problem caused by squirrels is damage to properties. With their robust teeth and natural instinct to gnaw, they can chew through wood, insulation, electrical wiring, and other building materials, leading to significant damage and potential fire risks.

Garden damage can be another problem when it comes to squirrels. They are known to raid gardens, feasting on fruit, vegetables, and bird feeding stations. Squirrels can pull up and consume recently planted bulbs and seeds, damage flowers and ornamental plants, and disturb bird nests.

What Attracts Squirrels?

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