Squirrel Removal and Control in Seattle

Squirrel Biology: The Eastern Gray Squirrel is a tree-dwelling rodent. Adults typically average 2 pounds. They have two litters of young per year, usually one in August and one in September. They are active year-round. They often build nests in trees. Their diet consists largely of nuts and grains. They are extremely agile, with great balance and leaping ability. Like all rodents, they gnaw to keep their teeth trim. They have a bushy tail, used for communication and balance. Eastern Gray Squirrels are mostly active in the morning and evening.

Nuisance Concerns: Squirrels simply love to live in the attics of homes. To a squirrel, an attic is just a big, open tree, with a warm dry inside. Squirrels will often chew their way in, making large holes in the soffit, fascia boards, vents, or other areas. They also chew once inside, usually on the woodwork and often on the electrical wires. Exposed wires can pose a fire hazard. Squirrels also bring in bedding material. They of course urinate and defecate in the attic, and the droppings cause a potential biohazard. Most customers complain about the scurrying and scratching noises that squirrels create once inside an attic. At times, they will chew right through the ceiling and into the house.


How To Get Rid Of Squirrels - If you have a squirrel problem, it can be a very costly one. As cute as people think squirrels are (and they are), they can also cause a lot of damage inside your home so you should do everything in your power to evict them. You will be asking yourself how to get rid of squirrels and squirrels when they seem to be everywhere? But getting them out of your house and property is not as difficult as you think, even with their speed and agility. Just consider these tips and use the right tools to get them out. Skip the repellent; although there is a small chance that they will work they are usually just a waste of time and money.

The tools you can use when learning how to get rid of squirrels and squirrel’s nests are traps. You should try using live traps as a first alternative, not only because they are the more humane way of disposing the squirrels, but you are also avoiding any chance that the squirrel will die outside the trap. Lethal traps are also available, but most people do not like to handle dead squirrels especially because they are mostly seen as cute animals that people like to watch outside. If you use a live trap make sure you release the squirrel far from your house so that it does not come back.
