Squirrels in the Attic
Squirrels love attics—they're dry, protected, and warm places for them to nest and raise babies. If you've discovered squirrels in your attic, call us! There's a chance there could be babies involved, so you will want to tread as carefully as possible to ensure the safety of all parties.
We will perform an inspection to figure out how the squirrels have gotten in (they're notorious chewers and can make existing holes as big as necessary for entry), remove the squirrels and possible babies, place a one-way door on the entry hole and any other squirrel-proofing methods, and clean and disinfect the attic.
Keeping The Squirrels Out For Good
Squirrels are definitely a nuisance for many residents, although in many states they are a protected game animal, our professional technicians know how to get rid of the squirrels and keep them away.
Making sure that squirrels do not take up residence inside your home can be a very challenging job. Setting traps and poison can be extremely dangerous; you could hurt yourself, your family or your pets. Instead, save yourself the hassle and headache and just call our office and we will take care of your squirrel problem for you!Request a Quote
