Reasons For Getting Rid Of Squirrels
Squirrels can be seen as cute and cuddly little creatures. They are so common, you may not even know they can be a problem when it comes to pest control. The damage they can cause to your property, and the diseases they carry, may change your mind. You’ll be calling us here at Pest Exterminators in no time to rid you of your squirrel problem!
We often come into close contact with squirrels, so it’s really important that you know the risks involved with having them around. If your London home is surrounded by a lot of trees and shrubbery, you may find yourself, particularly at risk.
Squirrels can transmit serious diseases. They are often riddled with fleas and ticks too, making them even less cute and cuddly!
Stopping The Squirrels From Driving You Nuts
The best way to keep squirrels off your property is by using preventative measures as a form of pest control. Keeping them away in the first place is definitely the most effective route to take! Methods of prevention are recommended to be carried out by a professional pest control specialise, so call us out to your London home for some of our tailor made treatments.
Here’s some great tips for you to start with, to prevent squirrels from coming near your home.
- Remove food sources from your garden. If you have bird feeders, make sure they’re squirrel proof. If you have any trees that regularly drop nuts or fruit, it’s important to pick it up at least once a day to stop any pests from invading.
- Put the lids on your bins. All of your bins should have a sealed lid placed on top, and should never be left to overflow.
- Install and repair the fences around your garden. We all have that one hole we’ve been meaning to fix for a while, so now is the time to do it!
- Make a squirrel feeder and then place it away from your property. The squirrel will go elsewhere for its food.
For effective squirrel and other pest management, it’s always best to leave it to us, the professionals.
