Squirrels are a pest that can cause much damage and sleepless nights with their activities when nesting in a loft space or chimney. They may look cute but can become very aggressive if their territory is threatened, especially if they have young in the nest.
The Grey Squirrel carries a fatal disease called the Pox virus which kills the native Red squirrel once mated. The red squirrel is protected under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981 so care must be taken when identifying the species. The Pox Virus cannot be spread to humans.
We advise customers not to try and deal with eradicating squirrels by themselves but to call a professional pest control service. If you try and block them out, they will gnaw ferociously until they’re back in creating more damage to your property. We offer a bespoke treatment after a thorough survey to rid squirrels from your property.
