Professional Prestwich Grey Squirrel Control

Grey Squirrels

Grey squirrels arrived in the United Kingdom in the 1800s and are now very common in urban and rural areas of Britain. Squirrels naturally nest in the hollows of trees, but as their numbers have increased in urban areas they seek alternatives which are usually the eaves of houses or buildings or lofts which provide a dry, safe and warm environment in which to nest and have young.

Squirrels have two breeding seasons each year, one in late winter to early spring and the second in summer to autumn. There are usually 3 to 4 kittens in each litter.
