The presence of squirrels, while seemingly harmless, can lead to significant issues for both homeowners and businesses. Understanding the importance of professional squirrel control is the first step toward safeguarding your environment.

Squirrels are not only a nuisance but also capable of causing considerable damage to your property and potentially affecting your health. Let Pestforce arm you with the necessary knowledge and professional solutions to address any squirrel infestation.

Know Your Foe: Squirrels and Their Impact

Effective squirrel control begins with understanding these agile and persistent creatures. Squirrels are known for their impressive ability to climb and jump, allowing them to access your property in ways you might not anticipate.

The damage caused by squirrels can be extensive, including:

  • Electrical Damage: Squirrels have a penchant for gnawing on wires, which can lead to electrical fires and costly repairs.
  • Structural Damage: They can also chew through wooden beams and insulation, compromising the integrity of your property.
  • Health Risks: While less common, squirrels can carry diseases and parasites that pose health risks to humans and pets.
  • Garden and Plant Damage: Squirrels may dig up lawns and gardens in search of food, leading to significant landscaping damage.

Detecting the Presence: Signs of a Squirrel Infestation

Identifying a squirrel infestation early is crucial for timely intervention. Here are signs to watch for:

  • Noises: Listen for unusual sounds such as scratching, scurrying, or chewing from the attic, walls, or ceilings.
  • Damage: Look for chewed wires, marks on wood, and damaged exterior areas like fascia boards.
  • Squirrel Sightings: Regular sightings of squirrels entering or exiting your property, especially in attic spaces.
  • Nests: Squirrels build nests from leaves and twigs, often in attic spaces or trees close to your property.
  • Droppings: Finding squirrel droppings in your attic or around your property is a clear sign of infestation.
