How will you know you have a squirrel problem?
The most common sign of squirrels is when they come into your loft area. They are extremely noisy and can make a tremendous amount of noise, much more than rats or mice.
Why should you have squirrels treated?
Squirrels can cause significant damage. They tear up loft insulation for bedding, they chew timber and pipe work and they pose a significant fire hazard by stripping the insulation from your electrical wiring. Grey squirrels are vermin and if they enter your garden they will destroy plants, bulbs, strip bark and will eat birds’ eggs and chicks.
What can you do before treatment?
Just observe, don’t try to block any entry points before treatment, this may cause the squirrels to do more damage as they try to get back into your property.
What will I do to treat this Squirrel problem?
The area of infestation will be baited with a special anti-coagulant bait containing Warfarin which is the only poison allowed by law for the control of squirrel infestation. The squirrels will need to feed more than once before they have taken a lethal dose, they suffer no ill effects whilst doing this and therefore are not suspicious of taking the bait. Traps may be used in conjunction with bait and these must be checked each day to ensure that no unnecessary suffering occurs.
What happens after treatment of Squirrels ?
If squirrels have entered your property some proofing should take place after treatment to ensure that other squirrels in the area do not take over from the ones that have been dealt with.
