We are able to coexist peacefully with most species of wildlife whilst they are in their natural habitat, as certain species get used to people being around them. Unfortunately, this can often result in damage to property, and potentially increase the risk of the transfer of disease.
Squirrels, for example, can often get out of control in terms of their population and as a result can cause risks to human health and to property.
Signs Of Squirrel Activity:
- Digging in lawns causing holes
- Damage to fruits and vegetables
- Distinctive scurrying sounds in roof spaces and attics
- Tree damage
- Bird feeder damage
Squirrels tend to have grey coats with a white underside, though sometimes the colour of the coat can be a brownish colour. They grow up to around 30cm long and have bushy tails which are nearly as long as their bodies.
Squirrel Control Specialists
Squirrels cause most of their damage once they get access to the roof space of a house, by climbing up the walls, running along gutters, or simply jumping from trees on to the property. Once they have access and get inside, they will chew insulation from electrical wiring, tear up the fibre glass insulation, chew on woodwork and on ceilings, and they are often found in cold water storage tanks after they have drowned. Squirrels are found everywhere – in Lincoln, Grantham, Skegness, Sleaford, Horncastle, Spalding, and Stamford to name just a few towns. You may find them in the garden or the garage, or if you own a business out in the yard.
Grey squirrels tend to eat acorns, berries, tree bark, buds and other vegetation, so generally they are herbivorous, but if there is not much food about, they will eat insects, birds’ eggs or their chicks, and smaller rodents.
