About Local Squirrels

Gray squirrels are a common species found throughout much of North America, but they can also cause problems in urban areas where they have adapted to living in close proximity to humans.

They are known for their tendency to damage bird feeders and gardens, and their burrowing and nesting habits can also cause damage to buildings and other structures.

Additionally, gray squirrels can carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans and pets, and their foraging behavior can result in litter and debris in public spaces.

Overall, gray squirrels can be a nuisance for many people, and managing their populations in urban areas can be challenging without the help of professionals like New England Wildlife Control.

Signs You Might Have Squirrels​

  1. Noise: You may hear scratching, scurrying, or gnawing sounds in your walls, ceiling, or attic.

  2. Damage: Squirrels can cause damage to your home as they gnaw on wood, electrical wires, and insulation. You may notice holes or chew marks on the exterior of your home, as well as any damaged or missing roof tiles or siding.

  3. Droppings: If you see droppings in your home, it’s a good indication that you have a squirrel problem.

  4. Nest: Squirrels can cause damage to your home as they gnaw on wood, electrical wires, and insulation. You may notice holes or chew marks on the exterior of your home, as well as any damaged or missing roof tiles or siding.

  5. Sightings: If you see a gray squirrel inside your home, it’s a strong indication that you have a problem. Squirrels are active during the day, so it’s not uncommon to see them scurrying across the floor.

FAQs About Squirrel Control

Squirrels are adorable creatures, but they can become a problem for humans in certain situations. For instance, squirrels are known for raiding bird feeders and gardens, which can be frustrating for homeowners who have put time and effort into maintaining their outdoor spaces. Squirrels can also chew through electrical wires and insulation in attics, which can cause serious damage and pose a fire hazard. Additionally, squirrels can carry diseases and parasites that can be harmful to humans and pets. In urban areas, squirrels have become quite skilled at adapting to human environments and can even cause traffic accidents when they dart across roads.

There are several techniques that can be used to remove squirrels from an area. The most effective and humane method is to use live traps to capture the squirrels and relocate them to a more suitable habitat. These traps can be purchased or rented from hardware stores or pest control companies. It’s important to choose a trap that is appropriately sized for the type of squirrel you are dealing with.

Exclusion methods are also commonly used to prevent squirrels from entering a space. This involves sealing off entry points with wire mesh or other materials that squirrels cannot chew through. 

Another technique is to use repellents, such as predator urine or loud noises, to discourage squirrels from entering a certain area. These methods can be effective in the short term, but they may not be a long-term solution as squirrels can become accustomed to the noise or scent over time.
