Getting Rid of Squirrels
Your Columbus technicians are aware of the nuances of squirrel behavior, so they're better able to determine a long-term plan than an untrained resident may be. Critter Control will likely implement more than one type of trapping and removal.
- Preventative measures like sealing entry points and installing chimney caps can be effective.
- We typically use live traps for squirrel removal.
- Squirrels can bite and scratch if they feel cornered, so it's a good idea to not attempt to handle them.
Common Squirrel Issues
- When ground squirrels burrow near manmade embankments or dams, they weaken the structural integrity and cause collapses.
- Flying squirrels and tree squirrels damage homes by gnawing or tearing at insulation and electrical wires on roofs and in attics.
- Squirrels can cause power outages when they scamper across power lines.
- A good way to keep squirrels off your property is to cover any possible point of entrance and to cut overhanging tree limbs.
- It is not common that a resident will see a squirrel in their home, but they may drop in if they're searching for a warm shelter that is safe from the elements.
