The most well-known squirrel is the eastern gray squirrel of North America. Squirrels are generally intelligent and persistent animals. In residential neighbourhoods, they are notorious for discovering clever methods to circumvent obstacles in order to eat out of bird feeders.

What to
look for

Squirrels are sometimes considered pests because of their propensity to chew on various edible and inedible objects. This characteristic trait aids in maintaining sharp teeth, and because their teeth grow continuously, prevents over-growth. Homeowners in areas with a heavy squirrel population must keep attics and basements carefully 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, to either bury or recover seeds and nuts, and for building nests within structures, including attics  and basements.

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!

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”.
