Squirrel Control

If you are looking for options on squirrel control it will help you to get a professional evaluation on your home.

Some of the things that you can do to monitor squirrel control are to check the trees near your home. If they are within six to eight feet of your home they give ample jumping distance for squirrels to get onto your roof or into your eves. Keeping these branches trimmed will help to cut down on the activity near your home. Another thing that you can do is to wrap a two foot band of sheet metal around the trunk about six to eight feet above the ground. This will help to keep the squirrels from reaching the top of the tree and any extended branches.

Another important thing you can do towards squirrel control for your home is to regularly inspect your home for any signs of entry. A squirrel does not need a large hole to get into a home, only about the size of a U.S. Quarter. This means that you really have to look for things that may not seem too out of the ordinary. Look for things like gaps in the siding, any rotting wood, holes in the soffits, any openings where plumbing pipes or wires run into the building. These are all possible entry points for the squirrels and will help them in getting into your home. When squirrel removal is being done it is best to ensure there are no squirrels in your home prior to getting these holes and entry points sealed. If you seal in a squirrel this can lead to needing dead animal removal for your home.

There are different trapping methods that can be used for wildlife removal. The most effective for squirrels is the use of a one-way-door. This allows the squirrels to leave the area and not get back in. Because squirrels are territorial once they are out of your home they will help to keep other squirrels from entering your yard. This also runs the chance of them trying to get back into your home. This makes the sealing of any entry points to your home a vital step in squirrel control.

Another point of squirrel control is to get cleanup and sanitizing done after the squirrels have been removed. Squirrels can leave a mess of feces, urine and nesting materials. They may have also stored some of their food in the area of the house that they were occupying. Getting this all cleaned up will help to prevent future reentry from squirrels as well as other wildlife animals.
