Squirrel Control London - About Squirrels

Originally introduced from America during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the grey squirrel has spread widely and today is a well-known feature of British parks, gardens and woodland. The grey squirrel has pushed the UK’s native red squirrel near to extinction in all but a few places, in under a century. As a result, grey squirrels are regarded as a pest especially if they choose to nest in your premises, and will definitely require squirrel control London.

People think that squirrels are cute and cuddly but they actually cause more problems than rats, meaning that squirrel control London accounts for a high proportion of overall pest control services. Squirrels are very determined creatures and once they enter your loft it is very difficult to get them out and keep them out. Rats, on the other hand, tend to enter lofts by accident and don’t normally try to find their way in again.

How to carry out squirrel control London?

Squirrels like to build nests in warm, secure places - like your loft or chimney where they can chew through water pipes and electric cables. If squirrels get into these spaces and chew through these elements or even electric lighting cables, they can cause chaos, making squirrel control London a priority.

Electric cables chewed by squirrels are a common cause of house fires. Like rats, squirrels have ever-growing incisor teeth and the best place for them to gnaw when they are in your loft is the roof timbers causing thousands of pounds worth of damage.

Physically blocking gaps and entry holes with wire mesh is the best answer. Various types of traps are available as is a poison based on warfarin, but only to professional technicians. Release of grey squirrels caught in cage traps is illegal.
