The absence of large wooded areas in urban centres means these pests are making their homes in Irish domestic and commercial properties.
HOW TO IDENTIFY A PROBLEM WITH SQUIRRELS? Water pipe damage or Electrical wires chewed, loft timbers damaged
Squirrels have excellent vision
Squirrels may make nests out of the insulation in attics
They reach maturity at 10-12 months
Mother squirrels are sometimes cannibals.
Squirrels like to build nests in warm, secure places – like your loft or chimney where they can chew through water pipes and electric cables.
If squirrels get into these spaces they can chew through water pipes or electric lighting cables, causing chaos.
Electric cables chewed by squirrels are a common cause of house fires. Like rats, squirrels have ever-growing incisor teeth and the best place for them to gnaw when they are in your loft is the roof timbers causing thousands of pounds worth of damage.
Thoroughly blocking up any likely holes and gaps will help prevent squirrels from entering the building, but only if it is done properly.
People think that squirrels are cute and cuddly but they actually cause more problems than rats. Squirrels are very determined creatures and once they enter your loft it is very difficult to get them out and keep them out.
How To Get Rid Of Squirrels
Squirrels in the attic is the most common reason we’re called upon for our squirrel removal services.
The best way to get rid of squirrels is to remove any open diet sources: seeds, nuts, and fruits are all prime targets for squirrels in the house. Gutter guards can keep squirrels from finding entry points into your home. If a squirrel has chewed its way into your home or attic, give us a call.
To prevent squirrels from entering your home:
- Clip tree branches around or near your roof
- Remove wood or cuttings near your property
- Repair cracks or holes in your house
- Seal all entry points
