We are squirrel removal experts
Our services cover squirrel removal in Leeds, Huddersfield and all surrounding areas.
Grey squirrels are very intelligent and adapt easily to their environment and the food available. However, they shouldn’t be confused with Britain’s native red squirrels which are becoming increasingly rare and are protected.
To assess whether you have a squirrel problem, look out for where they may have entered your property, especially along fascia boards and eaves as they can chew holes there very quickly. A nest being raided is another sign of squirrels, as is damage to trees.
The problems they cause:
Squirrels can cause lots of damage to your home or commercial buildings. This includes damage to lofts and roof voids, where they are known to chew through electric and TV cables. They also sometimes eat eggs and chicks, and can cause significant damage to trees by removing vast quantities of bark. Squirrels can be quite threatening and can cause a noise nuisance too.
Squirrel removal – how we treat them:
Trapping is one of the most effective means of squirrel removal. Although they’re intelligent, they are also very greedy and, with the right bait, usually enter a trap. We can use either live or spring traps.
- Before beginning any work, we’ll do a full survey and risk assessment to determine the best approach.
- All our technicians are trained by the NPTA (National Pest Technicians’ Association), the BPCA (British Pest Control Association) and the RSPH (Royal Society for Public Health).
