Why use a professional squirrel pest control service?
Squirrel control in Maidstone, Sittingbourne, Chatham, Gillingham and Rochester areas:
The grey squirrel (sciurus carolinensis) is pest in gardens, stealing bird food and damaging trees, as well as digging unsightly holes in lawns. They also often nest in lofts and can very quickly cause a huge amount of damage to your building, chewing through cables, water pipes and even the beams supporting your roof. Blocking and entrance point before the squirrels have been killed will usually result in them causing more damage chewing holes next to the blocked holes. Females are extremely protective of their young, and will stop at nothing to defend them or get to them.
We will assess what is attracting the squirrels to your property, looking at a full range of integrated pest control methods and proofing systems. Along with trapping to eliminate the existing infestation, this will help reduce the chances of further invasions.
The requirement for rodents to constantly gnaw can also cause massive damage throughout your property. Many house fires are caused by squirrels chewing through electrical cables, and flooding of buildings from them gnawing on plastic water pipes.
Squirrel control treatments are usually undertaken over 2-3 visits. We will be able to outline a treatment plan during our initial visit, give you an idea of costs and recommend actions you or we can take to reduce the likelihood of future infestations.
Signs of squirrel infestations:
We are often asked: “How do I know if I have a squirrel in my house?”, “Is the scratching sound from my ceiling squirrels?” and “What do squirrel droppings look like?”
Squirrels generally make loud banging and scratching noises when in a roof space, mainly during daylight hours. You may see squirrels gaining in and out of your loft through soffits and broken tiles. Chewed cables, pipes and woodwork are a good indication of squirrel activity, as are greasy smear marks along regular runs and access points. If you can smell squirrels, it is normally a sign of quite an established infestation.
Do I have rats or squirrels in my loft?
Rats produce around 40 fairly large, cylindrical droppings per day, whereas squirrel droppings are much smaller and more round in shape.
Rats tend to be more active at night, and squirrels during the day.
It is important to accurately identify your pest species as they require different approaches for effective treatment.
You may also notice food packaging has been chewed, and paper, cardboard and insulation shredded for nesting material.
