Will Squirrels Damage My Property?

Squirrels in Woodford, represented primarily by the commonly seen gray squirrel, can create problems for homeowners and businesses alike. The gray squirrel, specifically, has become dominant and widespread, often causing problems. One of the major issues created by squirrels is damage to buildings. Making use of their powerful 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 hazards.

Damage to the garden can be a huge concern when it comes to squirrels. They are known to raid gardens, feeding on fruit, vegetables, and bird feeders. Squirrels often turn up and eat freshly 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. These buildings provide warmth, protection, and shelter that appeal 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 entice squirrels. They also gravitate to open rubbish bins or icorrectly sealed food bins.

How To Remove Squirrels in Woodford

Tracker Pest Control employ a few techniques to remove squirrels permanently. Exclusion is one of the most effective approaches, where we reveal and seal off 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.
