Humane Squirrel Removal

There are more than 60 squirrel species and five types of squirrels in the United States. The different species come in different colors. Distinct body types make it easy to dig, climb or glide through the air

The size also varies between species ranging from 5 inches to 3 feet. These backyard pests have four front teeth that never wear down because they never stop growing. 

Female squirrels give birth to about 2-8 squirrels at a time, multiple times a year. It’s not surprising that the squirrel population quickly goes out of control. When this happens, it’s important to get rid of them quickly.

Squirrels removal from the Attic

Squirrels do not need much to make their way into the attic. Squirrels can take the slightest edge or gap to gain entry. All they need is a hole the size of a baseball. After squirrels get into the attic, they will find a small area to call their home.

Squirrel Removal is at an all-time high. Squirrels can sound quite large for such a small animal.

The standard grey squirrel is not the giant squirrel there is. The grey squirrel makes up noise and damage where they lack size. 

Unfortunately, if you see squirrels on your roof, there is a good possibility that the squirrels are chewing on your home. And this can be a problem. Squirrels don’t need much room to enter and will chew almost anything they encounter. Squirrels also leave a lot of waste in your insulation that can easily cause drywall damage.

Home inspections for Squirrels

Alpha Wildlife can handle all your squirrel removal needs. Our team is prepared to provide a complete squirrel inspection in your home. This means that we look at all potential squirrel entry points in your property. We check attics, soffit, crawl space, and other areas, and create a plan to humanely remove squirrels.

Once you realize that you need a squirrel removal service, call Alpha Wildlife to set up an assessment. Every technician at Alpha Wildlife is nationally certified and trained in all things squirrel removal.

When our technician comes to your home or business, we will determine if you have a squirrel problem. If you do, then we will assess the property. Following this assessment, we will present a plan to get the squirrels out of the attic and keep them out permanently.

While removing the squirrels from home, we will constantly communicate with you. You will also have the direct number to the technician should you have questions whatsoever.

Possible Damages Caused by Squirrels

By doing so, squirrels will first damage the insulation throughout the attic. The squirrels will flatten the insulation by walking on it or digging through it. The insulation can also be ruined by the urine and feces left behind daily.

Squirrels can also chew on electrical lines, potentially causing power outages or fire. While it is unlikely to happen to your home, the fact is that it can. Squirrels also chew incessantly, causing further wood rot and damage. If squirrels in the attic go unchecked, the damage can be severe.

Some people think they can live with squirrels in the attic. But this is not advised, as squirrels are incredibly destructive.

Common signs that you have squirrels in the house

The first signs that people will generally experience with squirrels are quick running or scurrying in your attic. This often takes place at sunrise. This noise will typically continue for a few hours in the morning and again in the afternoon, just before sunset. Squirrels will chew a baseball-sized hole in your Soffits, Roofline, Eaves, etc.

Most squirrels will naturally sleep in your attic at night because your attic has become their new home. 

Once inside, they chew electrical wires, create insulation damage, and contaminate your attic and home with their feces and urine. Squirrels will mate twice a year, which coincides with many areas’ rise in call volume.

Squirrels will mate and have a litter in the fall and the spring. The kit sizes can vary, but they are typically 4-6 per cycle. Female squirrels are pretty protective. They will run off any other squirrels that try to get into the attic with them

You may not know that you have had squirrels in the attic because female squirrels can be quieter. When the noises get loud, the young squirrels start playing and chasing one another in the attic. When it comes to young squirrels, you have to handle them very delicately.

Our inspection and removal process:

Our trained technicians will inspect your home for entry points. We will also set up traps and seal the entry. Once complete, we’ll discuss with you our squirrel prevention services, that include the following:

  • Home inspection to find entry hole(s)
  • Remove babies by hand and set up traps
  • Trap adult squirrels in humane manner
  • Seal shut entry holes and other vulnerable areas after removal

Once our remediation service is complete, we are confident you will no longer have a squirrel problem. We’ll also take the squirrels to a safer environment, while our squirrel control steps ensure squirrels will not be able to return.

Common Squirrel Removal Questions:

Q: What attracts squirrels to my property?

There are many facets of your home that may be attractive to a wild animal like a squirrel. It might be your bird feeder, which tempts them with daily food sources. Or it might be an easily accessible attic or crawl space, which provides protection from predators.

There is no way to know for sure, but one thing is for sure. If you have squirrels in your living space, they need to be removed by a trusted pest control service provider.

Q: How do you get rid of squirrels permanently?

A: You will never be able to keep the squirrels off the roof. We can, however, seal up the vulnerable areas that are considered hotspots that squirrels will try to get into. But a proven, full service wildlife control expert will be able to remove an infestation and prevent future entry.

Once we have sealed an area, including the main entry point and other vulnerable areas, we are confident squirrels will not be able to get back in. And we don’t seal up a space until we are sure all nuisance animals have been removed.

Q: What types of squirrels are in the area?

A: Grey Squirrels, Red Squirrels, Flying Squirrels, Fox Squirrels, White Squirrels, and Black Squirrels all live throughout Tennessee and South Carolina.

Q: Does Alpha Wildlife remove all kinds of squirrels?

Yes, we can remove any squirrel from your property. This includes common grey and red squirrels, as well as more nimble flying squirrels.

Q: What are common entry points for squirrels to get into the attic?

A: Squirrels will typically use areas such as the roofline gap, eave gaps, any ventilation vent, or rotten wood.

Q: Do squirrels carry diseases?

A: Yes, Squirrels do carry diseases. According to the CDC, squirrels can have the Plague, Tularemia, Tick Fever, Lyme disease, La Crosse Encephalitis, and West Nile virus.

Q: What do I do if I find a baby squirrel?

A: Typically, you will need to find a local wildlife rehabilitator for baby squirrels. They are trapped and removed with an extra level of precision.

A voluntary company or individual taught by the state wildlife commission will raise the young squirrels to survive once released.

Q: What can I expect for my squirrel removal cost?

Many companies will offer you a quote, only to up the price on you later. Don’t trust these outfits. Every nuisance animal infestation is different and requires different methods. Whether you have just one or many squirrels, this can change the potential cost of squirrel removal.

We were really impressed with Chris Mclain’s knowledge of pest control. He was so professional in his explanation of what we needed to have done. His bid was also much lower than our other bid. We highly recommend this company for any pest elimination you need. Michael and Ashley Robilio.

David and Matt at Alpha Wildlife are awesome to work with. We live in Germantown, TN and had rats in our home. They were quick to diagnose the problem and got the rats out of our home. Great work from both of them.

After calling multiple other companies to remove a possibility rabid racoon from my property and was told they could not get to me until the next day, I called Alpha Wildlife. Chris came out within 30 minutes of my call and caught and removed racoon. He said they would check to make sure it was sick. If so they would euthanize humanely. If it was not sick they would release it back into the wild. This made my daughter very happy. I would highly recommend.
