MARYLAND and Delaware
When they’re not running around like crazy collecting nuts, what are squirrels up to? Some squirrels like to turn your home into their home, and this can be problematic. Having a squirrel live in your home may not sound like a huge problem, but squirrels can bring with them many unseen consequences whether you’re located in Fenwick or anywhere else in Sussex County, DE.
How do you know if you have a squirrel in your attic or home? Well, if you’ve seen a squirrel in your home, or climbing around your house that’s a pretty good indicator. If you’re hearing noises, particularly during the morning and evening when they’re most active, coming from the attic then it could be a squirrel. Additionally squirrels, like all rodents, need to chew to keep their teeth sharp. If you’re finding anything in your home that looks like its been chewed on, then it could be a possible sign of a squirrel.
We are dedicated to saving as many animals as possible, squirrels included. We use a variety of catch and release techniques, with the idea being that we can safely capture your problem squirrel and relocate it far away.
We often times will use traps to capture squirrels. Some of the different varieties of traps we use include:
If you have a squirrel running around the main area of your home (i.e. the kitchen, living room, bedroom, etc.) then you need the immediate help of an emergency squirrel removal specialist. Stay far away from the squirrel and call us ASAP.
As more and more forests and woodlands are destroyed and degraded, more and more squirrels seek refuge in human dwellings. It’s an unfair and a viscous cycle, but it is still important for both parties to remove the squirrels from your home. If you have a squirrel living in your home that’s giving you trouble don’t hesitate, give us a call today. We are open 24/7 and are always available for emergency squirrel removal, and can schedule an appointment for any non-emergencies.
You may know that you have a squirrel living in your home, but do you know what specific dangers come along with this furry intruder? There are several things that we feel anyone dealing with an intrusive squirrel should know.
Squirrels do not carry any specific harmful diseases, but do carry parasites, and can act as a medium between the diseased parasite and you. They also tend to leave behind large amounts of droppings which can lead to health problems such as leptospirosis (Weil’s disease) or Salmonella.
Personally we would very much prefer to capture the animal alive, but even if we wanted to use poison, it’s not a real option. First off there are no registered or effective poisons for squirrels. Some people try to use rat poison, but squirrels often will simply ignore the rat poison or are unaffected by it. Not to mention that even if you are successful in killing the squirrel, it could die somewhere within the walls of your home, leaving behind a lingering smell of death.
One easy way to keep squirrels away from your home is to remove any possible attractions. If you have any bird feeders or fruit trees, you may want to consider removing them as they will draw in squirrels. Additionally it’s never a bad idea to seal off your home, ensuring squirrels don’t even have a way in if they wanted one.
