We’ve all seen squirrels harmlessly scurrying about in the trees and parks around us, but for some, these furry critters are a source of untold annoyance and frustration. Squirrels love to invade our attics, garages, and crawlspaces in search of food, water, and shelter for their babies. Once inside your home, squirrels can be incredibly difficult to remove on your own, which is why the professionals here at Critter Control® are here to help.
How are Squirrels Dangerous?
Squirrels are willing to nest pretty much anywhere in a house, but the attic is by far their favorite hideout. Their small size allows them to squeeze in through the tiniest of holes, but they’ve been known to chew holes in siding or roofing soffits to gain access as well.
Once inside a home, squirrels waste no time in tearing up wooden roof structures, insulation, and even electrical wiring in their mission to build a nest for their young. Their urine and feces contaminates insulation, hurting its efficiency and costing you more on electricity, as well as permeating walls and ceilings, creating expensive repairs.
The Critter Control® Approach
We never recommend attempting to remove squirrels on your own, as they can be quite dangerous if they feel cornered or threatened. Instead, allow our team of professionals to put the following 4-step approach to work for you:
- Inspection – First, our technicians perform a thorough inspection of your home to determine what steps need to be taken.
- Removal – Next, we eliminate the squirrel threat from your home using the most effective yet humane methods available anywhere.
- Repair – Once the nuisance critters are gone, our technicians are able to clean up and repair any damage they may have caused during their stay.
- Exclusion – Finally, we seal any potential entry points to your home to keep the squirrels away in the future.
If these furry creatures have invaded your home, don’t waste money on commercially available traps that work marginally at best. Let the squirrel removal experts at Critter Control® of West Palm help. Call us at 561-274-0224 with any questions, or to schedule a complimentary home consultation today.
