Squirrels (Sciurus Carolinensis) in East Yorkshire

The grey squirrel seems to be quite happy to set up home within a domestic loft, making use of the insulation to build their drey (nest) and rear their offspring. Squirrels are very territorial animals. Once they have become established within your property, they will return every season. They can cause considerable damage and even danger, by gnawing through electric cables, wooden rafters etc.

Biology:

Grey squirrels measure approx. 25-30cm (head and body) and the tail is approx. 20 cm long. They weigh between 350 and 600g. Grey squirrels may produce up to four young twice a year between the months of September and May. Their teeth grow 50mm per year so they are continually gnawing.

Prompt Pest Services Control:

Effective control involves proofing the area to ensure all visible holes and gaps are sealed. To eliminate squirrels already in your home or premises professional control materials such as specialist traps will be suitably placed.
