A squirrel nest in the attic or loft is often confused for rats or mice as they rustle and scratch their way around. However, unlike mice or rats, they will typically confine themselves to your attic space.
While a common part of our natural habitat, a squirrel infestation can be a costly experience if they enter your building. They will gnaw on woodwork, ceilings and electrical wires. They will tear up loft insulation and contaminate your loft attic space with urine and droppings.
Tell-tale signs of squirrels are, a smell of urine in the loft area, lots of squirrels hanging around your property, especially near your roof, fruit and nuts being stolen from bird feeders, bark being stripped from trees in your garden.
If you notice any of these signs, contact us today to help you solve the problem. We do not recommend you try to deal with the problem yourself. Squirrel control could be dangerous and illegal, as you must know the legislation around the control of squirrels.
