Our trained wildlife technician will inspect your property for squirrel entry holes and determine the best solution to trap and prevent squirrels from coming back. Our method of squirrel removal is humane and safe, we simply trap and move the squirrels far away from your property. Squirrels sometimes enter your home through uncapped chimneys or dyer exhausts.

Our knowledgeable squirrel removal technicians will install a one-way door on the entry point. This allows the squirrel to leave but they will not be able to get back in. The door is temporary, and has a trigger to let the technician know when the squirrel has left. The technician will also let you know of other potential entry points, and will recommend fixing these problem areas.

Tips for Preventing Squirrels

Check your roof for wear and tear by looking for missing shingles or gutters that have fallen off. Don't feed squirrels if you don't want them and bird feeders is a good source of food for them. Even if squirrels can’t get to the bird feeder, birds are notoriously sloppy eaters and spill far more seeds on the ground than they eat. These steps certainly won’t prevent squirrels from coming around but should at least help keep their numbers lower.
