Squirrels are members of the rodent family. In the main, they cause us few problems. In fact, they are a joy to watch them scampering through the trees.
But squirrels, like other pests, can become disorientated. Looking for a safe place to nest can lead them to attics and loft spaces in domestic properties, churches, all kinds of buildings where they can quickly and easily gain access.
Squirrels are fiercely protective of their young so if you suspect a squirrel family is in your loft or outbuilding, you must contact TAH Environmental.
What You MUST Know About Squirrels
The native red squirrel is still somewhat of a rare sighting in Southern England but over the years, the red squirrel population had increased.
Smaller and lighter than its grey cousin, many people assume that the grey squirrel was responsible for the decline of the red squirrel because it killed it. In fact, it was the diseases carried by grey squirrels that caused the population of the red squirrel to decline.
The Grey Squirrel
Grey squirrels were introduced into the UK in the 1870s and are now considered to be significantly invasive.
The law states that no trapped grey squirrel can be released back into the wild. It must be euthanized using an appropriate and humane method.
Live trapping squirrels could be seen as inhumane treatment and unless you pay a vet to euthanize it, you could be at risk of causing an animal unnecessary suffering.
Squirrels in attics and buildings lead to damage because like rats and mice, they continually gnaw to keep their incisor teeth short.
Once removed and damage repaired, our team will ensure that entry points are sealed effectively so no more squirrels can move in.
If you have a problem with a grey squirrel, stay on the right side of the law and ask TAH Environmental to send a qualified pest control technician to deal humanely with the squirrels.
