When it comes to wildlife
We can all agree that squirrels are cute, but there’s nothing cute when it comes to them being in your attic. Although they are not native to the UK, the grey squirrel is the most common. Despite its cuteness, it is considered a pest for a reason. We understand the importance of living a pest-free life and we are here to help.
Common facts about and why should we get rid of squirrels
Squirrels are classified as rodents, which means that their teeth are constantly growing and they need to gnaw in order to keep them short. They are mostly causing problems to the property, mainly while looking for a warm place where they can hide and make a shelter, leaving only to search for food. Sometimes they can cause a fire hazard if they incidentally chew through cables in your loft. After making their shelter squirrels leave a lot of droppings, which can lead to contamination.
Signs of having squirrel infestation
- Scratching noises, usually coming from your loft or wall cavity
- Droppings in your loft
- Having more squirrels hanging around your property is usually a sign they might have shelter in your attic even if you haven’t heard them before
- If you are a bird lover and you have some bird feeders in your garden it is likely squirrels will be stealing, as it is very appealing to them and of course easily accessible
