Squirrel Control West Wales

Grey squirrels are larger and more robust than the native red species. While grey squirrels can cause considerable damage to trees with their habit of stripping the bark in the early summer, it is the damage they can do to your home that is of prime concern. Squirrels breed twice a year, in late autumn/early spring and again in the summer, having between 1 and 5 young per litter. They build nests, called dreys, from twigs, moss and other soft materials, typically located high in trees. However if they are able to access your roof void or loft, they will often choose this as their nest site.

Not only do they create noise scurrying about above your head, but they will tear up your loft insulation to create their nest. Being rodents, they need to gnaw to keep the length of their ever-growing teeth at bay. Therefore, they will chew wooden roof beams and stored items and sometimes even strip the insulation from electrical cables causing a major fire hazard. Squirrels only need a space the size of their head to gain access and so diligence is required when looking for their entry point. If this is not found and sealed, the squirrels will continue to present a problem.

However, it is essential to ensure that there are no squirrels (or other birds or animals) in the loft before the holes are blocked. Aside from being cruel (and illegal) to trap them in this way, they can cause further damage as they try to escape or nasty smells and infestations of insects should they be left to die and decompose there. If they die in a water tank, the decomposing body can contaminate the water causing illness if the water is used for drinking.
