Squirrel Repellent Advice and Expert Removal Strategies

When it comes to unwanted tenants like squirrels who like to nest in attics, you want to be smart when choosing a technique for their removal. Although cute, these busy critters can become pretty annoying to deal with and can make a lot of mess and damage to the area they inhabit. Squirrels have been known to raid bird feeders as well, making it hard to chase them away. There are a lot of squirrel repellents that can be quite dangerous for them, so when it comes to removing squirrels, companies like Skedaddle avoid using repellents and opt for the ethical approach. Skedaddle has been successfully removing squirrels in a safe and humane way, leaving homes spotless and owners satisfied. Read on to get acquainted with some advice concerning squirrel repellents and expert removal strategies as well.

Can Squirrel Repellents Harm These Animals?

The first thing that comes to people’s minds when they think of ways to remove unwanted wildlife is to try and find a repellent. Squirrel repellents can be bought or made at home, but usually, serve only as a short-term solution. These repellents aren’t harmful and resemble pepper sprays that can chase the squirrels away from their dens. Although this will sometimes help, it only serves to temporarily remove the squirrels from your home. The annoying part is that you’ll need to cover every inch of the area they inhabit with the repellent. The most popular squirrel repellents are mothballs and ammonia sprays which rarely bother these animals but can be very dangerous for humans to inhale. That is exactly why you’ll need a better and safer solution to get rid of these furry animals.

Should you Remove Squirrels on Your Own?

There are strategies that can help you get rid of squirrels and keep them from coming back. First of all, you’ll need to inspect the whole area to find where they’re going in and out and then try to locate all the babies. This isn’t an easy task since mothers like to hide their babies well in order to protect them from predators. Beware of the mother squirrel since they can be very aggressive when it comes to their babies. Baby squirrels don’t leave their mother’s den until they’re up to eight weeks old and can be easily removed by hand, but if not handled properly they could be put at risk. If the mother squirrel feels that you are enough of a threat, she will attempt to relocate her babies to another den site. It is important to remember that removing squirrels is only one step. After they have been removed, proper cleaning and prevention is absolutely essential.
