    Squirrel Pest Control

    Choose Acorn’s Squirrel Removal Services

    When squirrels find a place to nest, this becomes their ‘territory’, and they will protect their territory at all costs. Especially when they have young in the nest. This means they can become very agitated and even aggressive when disturbed. There is a common misconception that if the animal’s entry hole is blocked this will remove the problem. This unfortunately is not the case. Do not block entry holes until the squirrel pest control infestation is completely removed.

    Squirrel droppings can become a nuisance in your garden, and bring problems that can cause great health risks, such as flea infestations, allergic reactions, and issues with asthma. It is advised that you contact Acorn Environment Services to remove squirrel droppings before they build up in your garden, or if you notice squirrel droppings in your loft/attic before the problem gets out of hand.


    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.
