Squirrels can cause significant damage by gnawing on wood and electrical cables.

Squirrels can be removed by catching them in traps. It is possible to use DIY traps, although great care needs to be taken when handling cages with live squirrels, as they are likely to bite and scratch. Our BPCA certified technicians are trained to remove squirrels.

It is an offence to release grey squirrels back into the wild and once caught in a cage, they must be destroyed humanely. Professional treatment of grey squirrels may use mechanical traps or baiting. These are effective methods when applied by appropriately trained technicians.

It is essential to proof your home against squirrels to stop them re-inhabiting. This may include cutting branches overhanging your property, to prevent access and blocking their access points.
