Squirrel

Squirrels are commonly found in Calgary, particularly in established neighbourhoods. Squirrels can be seen climbing trees and running across roof tops and fence lines. The most well-known squirrel is the eastern gray squirrel of North America. Squirrels are generally intelligent and persistent animals. Squirrels gain access into structures primarily by pushing against the soffit return and finding access to the roof line. Once inside, squirrels will nest in the insulation. The first step is to contact your pest control service technician to review the right options to safely remove the squirrels from the structure and consider what remediation steps are required.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR

Squirrels are sometimes considered pests because of their destructive behaviour of chewing on various edible and inedible objects. This characteristic trait aids in maintaining sharp teeth, and because squirrel teeth grow continuously, prevents over-growth. In residential areas with a heavy squirrel population it is recommended to keep attics and basements sealed to prevent property damage caused by nesting squirrels. Tree squirrels create minor annoyances by: digging in planting pots and flower beds to pull out bulbs (which they chew on); digging to bury or recover seeds and nuts; and building nests within structures, including attics and basements. It is always recommended to visually inspect, at ground level, where squirrels are coming and going from. On the interior of a structure, pay attention to scurrying noises and/or scratching on walls.

HOW TO IDENTIFY A SQUIRREL

Tree squirrels include over a hundred species that are found on all continents, except Antarctica and Australia. Tree squirrels live mostly among trees, as opposed to other squirrels that live in burrows in the ground or between rocks.

OUR SOLUTION

One of the first questions we ask clients is, “Where are you seeing the squirrels coming and going from?” The goal is to identify the access point(s). Our first preference is to install squirrel one-way doors. This will allow the squirrel to exit the roof line safely and find a new home in the area. Once the squirrels have exited the roof line, the squirrel one-way door is removed and access holes are sealed. From time to time, live trapping is an option. For the right solution, ask to speak to your pest control service technician. Peregrine offers a variety of pest management programs which will allow us to take the pressure off the structure. Our services focus on passive deterrence, exclusion systems, and live trapping. Ask to speak to your service technician to find out the best solution for your structure.

COMMON CONCERNS

How do I know if I have a mouse or a squirrel in a wall void?

The easiest way to know if you have a squirrel or mouse in the wall is by doing the knock test; knock on the wall where you are hearing the noise. If the noise stops, then reoccurs in the same general area within a couple of minutes, it is probably mice due to a freeze response. Larger wildlife tends to have a flight response and will flee disturbance.

Very helpful

Nick was very helpful in helping us get rid of our squirrel problem. I have used other exterminators for this problem and never had any success. The traps worked great and now, touch wood, we are squirrel free for the first time in years!

Marilyn!!

Huge thank you to Marilyn who answered my panicked phone call regarding sqiuirels and bugs. Marilyn was very empathetic and a much needed calming force for me. She was very professional and able to ensure Nick came the next day to help resolve my “issues”.
