Squirrel

Grey squirrels are a common sight in rural and urban areas throughout the UK. In small numbers, they can exist alongside humans without causing any issues at all. But they can also become some of the most unpleasant pests homeowners and businesses have to deal with.

Squirrels will often choose roof spaces and lofts as a nesting site, which is very problematic. Firstly, squirrels can spread a number of diseases so they are not an animal you want too close to home. Diseases carried by squirrels include:

  • Salmonella
  • Lyme Disease
  • Tularemia

Grey squirrels can also be dangerous as they are highly territorial. They will regard their nesting space as part of their territory and it will be impossible to move them, especially if they have babies.

How do you Know if Squirrels have Moved in?

There are a number of telltale signs when you have a squirrel infestation. These include:

  • Droppings. You might notice squirrel droppings around the loft if they are nesting. They are about 8mm-12mm in size and are round in shape.
  • Sounds. Squirrels can cause a lot of noise whilst searching for nesting materials. They can also be very destructive, causing damage to your roof and loft.
  • Squirrel sightings. You should be able to spot squirrels making their way up to the top of your property, suggesting they are entering your roof space.
  • Broken boards. Squirrels will gnaw through objects and leave damage and mess wherever they decide to nest.
