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

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.

Humane Squirrel Removal Solutions

Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control applies a three-step process for wildlife removal on Vancouver Island and in the Victoria, BC area. This strategy helps us to achieve superior results compared to traditional wildlife control techniques.

  • Assess and Remove: First, we assess the situation. We identify the nature and extent of the infestation, and where the squirrels are located. Additionally, we determine the causes that likely led to the problem. Then, we remove the squirrels safely using one-ways doors that they can exit through without the ability to return.,
  • Clear and Clean: Next, we clear the impacted area and thoroughly clean it. Squirrels can carry diseases that may harm you, your loved ones and your pets. Pathogens may remain even after removal. So, we place a high priority on mitigating health risks. We will safely remove all harmful bacteria without spreading it throughout your home.
  • Prevent and Protect: Finally, we help you protect your property against future squirrel infestations. Galvanized steel screens are secured over all entry points, ensuring squirrels can not chew their way through. Prevention may also include sealing large cracks and gaps that they can squeeze through. We recommend removing food sources and trimming vegetation that touches the building to avoid attracting more squirrels and wildlife to your home.

Squirrels in Victoria and Vancouver Island

Squirrels are a common sight in most populated areas across Vancouver Island, including Victoria. Red, douglas, and eastern gray squirrels are all common sights in the area (the gray squirrels are urban transplants from the eastern side of the country). Northern flying squirrels are also sometimes spotted in B.C., but they tend to be less of a problem for homeowners.

They are very clever creatures that excel at scavenging. Anyone who has tried to keep them off a bird feeder or similar food source is familiar with how athletic and creative they can be. While this can be impressive to watch, it is also frustrating to deal with as a property owner.

Like other animals, squirrels like to find warm, safe places to nest and have babies. Thus, it is common for them to find their way into attics, crawl spaces and other such parts of homes and commercial properties.

The Dangers of Squirrel Infestations

Although squirrels are best-known for their high-flying adventures and skittish nature, they can be potentially quite dangerous. They are not typically directly dangerous to humans, but they can bite and scratch when threatened. This is particularly likely if there are babies nesting nearby.

More significantly, they can carry various diseases. In some cases, they may carry rabies. However, more common diseases include tularemia, typhus, plague and ringworm. Furthermore, their droppings and urine can create a potent environment for pathogens to thrive. In short, it is a good idea to handle your squirrel infestation quickly and effectively with the help of professionals. Do not attempt to move squirrels yourself.

Squirrel Facts


Squirrel teeth keep growing for their entire lives! This is common among rodents due to the way they gnaw on food, wood and various other materials.


Their seemingly crazy movements help them evade predators. They often move in zig-zag motions and change speed often, making them more difficult to catch.


Squirrels sometimes fake burying food to trick would-be thieves. That is brilliant problem-solving!


Their tails help them to stay warm in addition to aiding balance. Plus, they can plump up significantly to survive the winter. Watch out for chubby squirrels in the late fall!


Squirrels are little gardeners. By burying nuts and forgetting to dig some of them up, they help to plant new trees.
