Squirrels in the roof crawl space or attic are extremely common but they are far from harmless. They are extremely territorial and difficult to remove without the proper equipment, so if you have a squirrel pest problem you need to call us as soon as possible.
Squirrel droppings can become a nuisance very quickly, especially because they can cause nasty health problems for you and your family, such as flea infestations, allergic reactions, and issues with asthma. In extreme cases, they can even exacerbate long-term health issues, such as COPD.
Fortunately, we’re on hand 24 hours a day to help. Our expert pest removal team have the knowledge, experience and hi-tech equipment to get rid of your squirrel problems quickly and safely. They’ll even treat the area after the squirrels are gone to ensure that other squirrels don’t take their place.

Signs of a squirrel pest control problem
- Droppings – are often found in loft spaces. Squirrel droppings are larger and more rounded than a rats. Approximately 8-12mm and rounder at the edges rather than pointed.
- Sighting – They use loft insulation or similar as nesting materials. You may see a pile of shredded loft insulation or you may see the squirrel up in your loft space. Sometimes you may even notice them going in your fascia boards in a hole they have developed typically about the size of a tennis ball.
- Sounds – grey squirrels occupying a loft space make can make an almighty racket. People often describe it as ‘a group of them having a party up there’. Squirrels will continuously run around the loft space in search for nesting materials, when there is nowhere left to look, they will break through to other areas- causing a lot of sound!
- Damage – these animals are very strong, have sharp teeth and sharp claws. They can even chew through soft metals and hard wood and many other materials used in lofts and on roofing. Fascia boards, tiles, insulation materials and joists are often damaged by squirrel activity.

Removal of the squirrel infestation
Firstly we survey the activity areas, whether a loft or cavity and confirm the species’ presence.
We use a combination method of a variety of extremely effective traps and specialist squirrel poisons in squirrel pest control to resolve the problem as quickly and hassle-free as possible.
Once the animals have been fully removed, it is vital that the entry points are sufficiently blocked off. This ‘repair’ work can be very simple or very extensive depending on the level of damage and access. On the first visit, we will give you a quote for proofing, you are then able to accept our quotation or get this work carried out yourself. It is recommended that this is done within 10 days of removal to ensure other squirrels do not move in.
We guarantee to remove your infestation.
