  • Easy Food: If squirrels find a source of easy food they are likely to keep close to it. This can especially be a problem for homes that have bird feeders and tables, with squirrels known to go after the food on these.
  • Nesting Sites: Squirrels can be attracted to gardens with trees for the nesting opportunities they provide. Their adept climbing skills mean they can easily make their way to the roof of a building and if they find a way in can make their home in a loft area.

While grey squirrels are more likely to be spotted in a rural setting, their numbers have grown to the point that many now invade urban spaces. This has resulted in the need for Rey St Helens squirrel control services increasing.

Squirrel Problems

Outside a property, they can damage roof tiles and eaves as a way of getting in and they are capable of totally destroying bird feeders in an attempt to get the food. If they get inside a loft or attic area, they can rip at insulating material to use in their nest. They can also gnaw at objects and this can be particularly dangerous if they target electrical wires and communication cables. It is therefore sensible to keep them out of a property and garden, with squirrel removal best achieved by using a qualified pest control company.
