Squirrels are most active at Dusk and Dawn during the spring, summer, and autumn, but are only active around noon during the winter. They construct nests from leaves or use natural cavities for shelter and prefer to live in areas with an abundance of nuts, berries, fruits, flowers or grains. Squirrels will typically enter homes through gutter lines, holes or gaps around dormers, and un-capped chimneys.
During our inspection, we will identify the entry points and set traps to catch and remove the entire nest. Trapping normally takes 1-2 weeks to catch and remove 3-5 squirrels on average. After trapping, we will inspect your home and seal any entry points to prevent any future nesting.
How to Prevent Squirrels
- Trim all tree branches back at least 6-8 feet from your home
- Remove any bird feeders
- Remove any standing water sources
- Keep tight fitting lids on garbage containers
