This is a photo of squirrels caught in a trap. They will be physically removed from the home they were caught at. This will stop the problems that the animal was causing on the property, problems such as chewing, noise, fire hazards, etc. Wildlife management and control is different from extermination, so if you want a pro to come and take care of your squirrel situation, call one of the experts listed.
Squirrels cause a number of problems for people. The most common conflicts that occur with squirrels involves their desire to live inside of buildings. Like all members of the rodent family, squirrels are excellent chewers, and they will chew their way into your home or commercial building. Once inside, they may even chew on wires or pipes! People often hear the squirrels running about in the attic or ceiling. They often bring in nesting debris, and can create a fire hazard, not only due to the debris, but also by chewing electrical wires. Squirrels will also chew on the woodwork of a home. Everyone knows about how squirrels steal food from birdfeeders, but that problem can be solved by buying squirrel-proof feeders. Squirrels have two litters per year, and reproduce quickly, like all rodents. This means that at times the squirrel population can grow to high numbers, and extra pressure is placed on buildings. Squirrels will move into attics or chimneys, or even places like drier vents.

Customer Inquiry About Exterminating Squirrels: Dear David, There is a plan to kill the squirrels in the local woodland where we live in Wales. A group of us are very much against this and would like to have as much possible information to prevent this happening. Some people who want this cull to be carried out are involved with the Forestry Commission and claim the squirrels cause "enormous damage" to the trees. I have read your website and find it most interesting but wondered if you could you send us any information you have that would help to prevent the cull taking place or give us names or links to people who might be able to help us. Thank you so much
