Squirrel Removal and Control Canada
Squirrels might seem cute to look at when you are walking at the park, but you don’t want the squirrels living in a residential or commercial property. Unfortunately, due to the loss of natural habitat, many squirrels invade buildings by climbing trees and jumping onto rooftops before entering small holes. Most invading squirrels remain in the attics of homes away from people, but the animals can also scurry through narrow spaces between walls. A squirrel makes annoying noises while running around in hidden areas, but the real problem is the damage to building materials, including insulation and electrical wires.
Property Owners Require Humane Squirrel Control
Due to the cold temperatures in Canada, squirrels begin to spend more time in buildings and get ready to nest throughout the winter, and in many cases, property owners have no idea that the squirrels are living in a building until there is significant damage. While people may not realize that the squirrels are chewing on building materials, homeowners will begin to notice stains on ceilings along with a foul odor caused by the animal’s urine. This is when property owners realize that professional squirrel removal services are required as quickly as possible.
Squirrels can Transmit Diseases and Pathogens
Wildlife authorities require that squirrels are captured humanely rather than poisoned with chemicals or shot with rifles, and it is dangerous for amateurs to attempt trapping the animals. Squirrels are normally docile, but if backed into a corner, then the animals might bite, especially when protecting a nest filled with young. While squirrels rarely carry rabies, there is still the possibility, and a bite can transmit other pathogens. The fur and waste of squirrels also contain parasites such as fleas and roundworms that can cause illness in humans and family pets.
Capturing Squirrels Requires Setting Traps And Installing One Way Doors
The technicians working for squirrel removal services know how to find the entrance and exit holes where the rodents enter and leave a building, and these are the best locations to install sturdy metal one way doors. If a property owner has seen one squirrel in a building, then there are probably more because this animal breeds rapidly. A litter of infant squirrels grows to adult size in less than two months, and these squirrels begin to breed quickly. There is a good chance that a building has numerous squirrels, and a technician can use a trap designed to capture several of the rodents in one day and night.
Prevent a New Invasion of Squirrels
Effective squirrel control also involves finding how and why they have entered into the structure. Wildlife technicians will find and protect the buildings weak points to prevent re entry. Squirrels are able to squeeze into tiny holes, and each one of these requires sealing with caulking, metal screens and or metal flashing. The only material that squirrels are unable to chew through is thick metal, and extensive preventative measures are necessary to stop more rodents from entering attics and wall spaces.
