Grey Squirrel Control
We often take great delight when watching squirrels in the park or even in our own gardens. The same can not be said when we realise a squirrel has taken up residence in our loft space. Just like rats, squirrels have incisor teeth that grow continually, hence needing a source to gnaw against on a daily basis. They can easily chew through a facia board or soffit box and enter your roof space. Once inside they will continue to gnaw, this can be against any exposed wiring and has been known to be a distinct cause of house fires.
Squirrels have two breeding seasons each year, Feb/March and June/July, during these times they are more likely to try and find their way into your homes and into your loft void. Loft insulation provides the perfect nesting material and the relative seclusion of your loft makes a wonderful place to give birth, a usual litter size is between 3-7 young called ‘kittens’.
Having squirrels invade your roof is not only dangerous but will also play havoc with your sleep!
Because squirrels are regarded as pests, it is perfectly legal for householders to remove them, but due to the very strict laws about how this can be done, it is advisable to always call in the professionals.
