Squirrel Infestation And Removal
Squirrels, as cute as they may look, can be a costly and damaging pest. Squirrels make their nests by pulling apart insulation, drywall, and other materials that will aid in building their nest. Thus, they can be quite a destructive pest. They’re difficult to remove due to their speed and agility and generally are best left to be removed by professionals.

Why Squirrels Need To Be Removed
Squirrels are common in urban areas, and you’ve certainly seen them crawling around trees in your neighborhood. But, despite how common they are, they can make their way into your home! They love to be in attics and, unfortunately, this can be quite a damaging issue. Though they can be easier to trap than other wildlife, the technique needs to be perfect. Fortunately, we are experts at removing them safely and effectively. We ensure that the removal is done quickly and humanely, making sure that the squirrel remains safe throughout the process.
The removal process
The removal process begins with locating the squirrel, determining where it is and whether or not it has babies with it. Once we determine the location, we will also see how much damage has been caused. Typically, we notice that squirrels cause:
- Damage to the attic structure by chewing on the wood, pulling parts of it away to make its nest.
- Chewed wires, which is a fire hazard.
- Living in the chimney and subsequent damage to it.
- Stealing vegetables from your garden, rotted vegetables near the home.
- Potential for spread of disease, odor, and other health issues.
If this is noticed, we will repair the damage done by the squirrels. If babies are present, we determine the age and whether or not they will be able to run out of the location. If they are not able to, they will be removed by hand and brought to a safe location. We typically use one-way exclusion doors to remove the squirrels from the location.
The repair process
After the squirrel is removed safely, we repair the hole that the squirrel used to enter your home. Any other damage done to the location will be repaired. This is, again, most commonly done in the attic. We will clean the location if necessary, removing feces, urine, and the remnants of the squirrel’s nest. We then decontaminate the location of the squirrels home, ensuring that any pathogens present are killed.
Squirrels will typically make their homes inside of your attic. The process illustrated above largely describes the removal process for attics. Pricing and the process will change according to the location. Any queries about the price can be answered over the phone, where we give a ball-park price range. Generally, removal ranges from $200-400. Squirrels located outside of your home can be removed for less. We take safety seriously, ensuring that the animal is not harmed during the removal process. A more specific price will be given during the inspection. Squirrel families will not be separated. The process is done expertly, and we ensure that any questions you have regarding the process are answered in-depth.
All questions about the process will be answered on-site by our expert staff. We give clear, honest, and expert answers. You are our priority, and we make sure that we have permission before anything is done.
