SQUIRREL REMOVAL PROCESS

ASSESS AND REMOVE

Assess and Remove

Our comprehensive 50 point home inspection is designed to determine squirrel entry points and home damage. The attic is a common den site for squirrels where they gain accessing by chewing holes or slipping in between building materials. We then use hands-on removal techniques to humanely evict the squirrels. We start by performing a comprehensive inspection of your home and use hands-on techniques to humanely remove unwanted home guests.

Clear and Clean

Squirrels are notorious for creating large, messy nests within their den site and causing damage through chewing. Skedaddle will thoroughly clear away any nesting material and debris from the den and clean up the mess left behind. We can also replace soiled insulation and damaged ductwork if required.
Then we go where the animals go to clear and clean the mess they’ve left behind.

PREVENT AND PROTECT

Prevent and Protect

Our final step is making sure your home is protected, not only against the current intruders, but all the other squirrels in your neighbourhood. To keep them out we will secure the entry points we identified, as well any other potential vulnerabilities.We identify potential points of entry and secure them to prevent future infestation. We offer a lifetime guarantee against re-entry on any serviced areas.

 


Squirrels in Collingwood

Bordered on three sides by a thick forest and butting up against the Nottawasaga Bay on the fourth side, Collingwood, Canada, is a prime environment for creatures of all shapes and sizes. The town of Collingwood is home to nearly 22,000 people, but because it houses many miles of hiking trails and the popular Blue Mountain Resort, the city is also a popular tourist destination. Both locals and tourists can enjoy the beautiful scenery and catch glimpses of native wildlife while hiking or skiing. Along with coyotes, raccoons, and skunks, squirrels are one of the most plentiful creatures in the region and learning how to co-exist peacefully with them is important.

Many people enjoy watching squirrels frolic and play in their yards. One of the most popular types of squirrel in Collingwood is the red squirrel. This is due to the number of conifer trees that grow in the region. A red squirrel’s diet largely consists of conifer pine cones, and when they start gathering food for the winter, the small creatures often find attics to store pine cones in.

Squirrels are not generally dangerous animals, but sharing your home with them poses several risks. The creatures could damage the structure of your home if they start to gnaw on roofing material, structural beams, electrical wiring or pipes. They also sometimes carry infectious diseases that could be harmful to you and your family. Finally, you could harm the squirrels accidentally if you come face-to-face with them. For these reasons, it is best to keep them out of your home if possible.

You should have a professional assess and eliminate any potential points of entry because squirrels become unwanted guests in your home. You can also try to make your home less appealing to small animals by removing easy access to your roof, and removing food sources like overgrown gardens and fallen fruit. Despite your best efforts, you could still end up with an unwanted house guest. You could accidentally harm the animal if you try to remove it yourself, so it’s best to contact Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control for help.
