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.
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.
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.
If you are experiencing problems with squirrels in your home or business in Victoria, Nanaimo or the surrounding area, Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control can help. We offer humane wildlife removal services to help you enjoy your property while living more harmoniously with the surrounding wildlife.

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.
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.
