This rapid rate of growth feeds a need for effective squirrel removal techniques.

It is easy to overlook the damage caused by the grey squirrel. They are very cute and most people don't work in agriculture or even spend much time in the countryside. Despite their appearance, however, they are very destructive. In an agricultural setting, they wreak havoc in fruit trees, feeding on buds and immature fruit. In the autumn, they clamber through heavily-laden apple trees, knocking fruit to the ground.

Squirrels even pose a threat to native fauna. It is not uncommon for them to feed on the eggs of our native bird species. Decimating populations and wiping out generations. They also compete with indigenous species on a dietary level. Their vast numbers and hearty appetites mean that they get the lion's share of any nuts and berries before other species get the chance. They can chew through the husk of nuts that other species would leave alone. Littleborough grey squirrel control frees up resources for British species to thrive.
