It’s Busy Season for Squirrels

Fall is a very active time for squirrels. They are gathering food and looking for den sites to overwinter. Squirrels can have as many as 10 den or nesting sites in a neighbourhood!

The best way to secure your home from squirrels is to frequently check for vulnerable or damaged areas around your roof, vents, soffits, eaves and chimneys. Securing these areas before wildlife makes a cozy home in your attic is the best prevention.

A few other things you can do to deter squirrels from your home:

  1. Trim back tree branches a few meters

  2. Keep bird feeders out of reach or install a squirrel baffle

  3. Do not feed wildlife!

If squirrels have gotten in your home, the next best thing to do is call an experienced professional. Blocking off their entry point without proper investigation and proper materials can result in more damage to your home or worse.

An experienced company will install measures that exclude the squirrels from your home, allowing them to leave on their own. All too often we hear of squirrels getting trapped inside with no way out, or babies becoming separated from their mother.
