Certain rodents are cute and cuddly from a far but pose major threats the closer they get - these are also known as squirrels! These pests can often be seen taking large leaps from structure to structure, but they can also be spotted hiding out indoors. Despite their adorable appearance, squirrels are terrible houseguests that can result in property damage, illness and even fires! It is easy to see why these intruders have got to go, but getting rid of them is tough - unless you call a professional service. Toodaloo has spent years discovering the most effective way to get rid of infestations without causing more damage to properties.
Squirrels want the same thing that all pests want: accessible food sources, and a warm place to sleep. What better place to find these things than inside an attic, basement or crawl space. An opened door or window can act as an entry point for rodents but so can cracks in foundations, or uncovered vents. Once inside, squirrels build nests by ripping up insulation and soft materials. This means insulation needs to be replaced, potentially along with wiring and other costly materials. This makes for an expensive chore but is useless without removing the pests themselves. These rodents dig in to the depths of properties but can usually be identified by scurrying sounds or the gnaw marks that they leaves behind.
No matter their type, rodents are unsanitary. Squirrels bring in bacteria in the same way that any mouse or rat would. Depositing these germs around homes opens the door for health hazards. Squirrels also reproduce quickly and when babies are involved, situations become a lot more dire - and this is where professional services become a necessity. Sealing entry points can separate squirrels from their offspring, making them frantic and unpredictable. This is why Toodaloo experts have come up with a system to live-trap animals in a humane way, ensuring that any and all pests are gone. Once populations are removed, entry points are sealed so you don’t have to worry about any recurring visitors.
