City & Country Pest Control specializes in humane removal of squirrels.
Squirrels are very playful and energetic animals that are very good a climbing trees as well as walls of building. They are know to climb vertical walls of high rise buildings and steal food from people's balconies. In the urban areas we see mostly gray and black squirrels, with red squirrels more common in forests and cottage countries. A lot of residential areas, including residential homes, provide everything a squirrel needs. A source of food and shelter. Squirrels are known to seek shelter in attics which they access by climbing the ouside wall, then chewing a hole in the wooden part of the roof to get inside. Attics provide a safe, worm and dry environment that these animals prefer especially during the colder months. From there they are just steps away from backyard gardens, composter bins, or outdoor garbage bins. They will rip up any unprotected garbage bag to access the garbage food inside.
Squirrel might look cute and harmless, but they will cause a lot of damage to your home if allowed to stay. At the same time they can pose a serious health threat. They are capable of chewing through thick wood and hard plastic to get into your attic. Once inside they create more damage by tearing up insulation, chewing through wires, pooping and urinating, creating a space that is contaminated with air borne bacteria, that is very dangerous to human health. Squirrels may also be carrying ticks and fleas that can could be a threat to the health of pet cats and dogs
Also by chewing up a hole in your roof squirrels create entry point for other animals interested in making your attic their home, including bats and raccoons.
City and Country Pest Control staff are equiped with proper safety gear including protective suits and respirators, so they can safely access contaminated areas and asses the damage caused by squirrels. We will inspect your property do determine whether in fact you do have squirrel problem in your home. We will determine points of entry. We will safely and humanely remove all squirrels from your property by using specialized and properly baited traps. We will remove squirrel poop and sanitize the area in order to make the areas safe for the home owners and their pets.
Although as mentioned earlier, squirrels can look cute and harmless, it's not recommended to approch squirrels and try to catch them with your hands as they can get vicious when in defensive mode and will attack if feel threatened. Quirrels are very fast and they can bite quicker that a snake and their stong, deep bite can easily turn into infection of the bone and surrounding tissue.
With their great sense of smell and direction, squirrels are capable of finding their way back home if released in the near by area. We release all trapped squirrels in an environment at least 50 kilometers from where they were trapped, to eliminate the possibility of them coming back.
Once all squirrels have been safely and humanely removed from your property, and the property has been cleaned up and sanitized, we'll make recommendations for preventing the same problem from happening again in the future.
