It can be hard to know how to tackle infestations when you are dealing with animals and not just insects. Squirrels appear cute from the outside but having these rodents indoors makes for a pretty ugly situation. Animals have a habit of outstaying their welcome, but our Toodaloo technicians can help get them out. Professional pest management services get rid of your infestations promptly, but most importantly – humanely! Instead of letting these animals run wild indoors, call Toodaloo for your Thunder Bay squirrel removal.
The habits of squirrels aren’t that much different from other rodents. Anything that a mouse would do, a squirrel would do – but on a much larger scale. If you are hearing scratching and scurrying coming from attics, crawlspaces or behind walls, it is not just your imagination. Rodents are known for gaining entry into properties through even the smallest of openings. Squirrels are known to dig their way into weakened materials, as well as sneaking into air vents, chimneys, and even opened windows and doors. Once inside, these pests set up camp, hunkering down and creating a space for themselves.
Squirrel damage comes from tearing away at delicate materials in order to build nests and through gnawing. Chew marks can be found all across wooden materials, even including furniture. While exposed wood is a problem area, wiring is even worse. As wiring is chewed through, it becomes a major risk for electrical fires. One of these rodents does enough damage on their own, but a litter is a mess! Over time, squirrel populations only increase, bringing on more damage, more droppings and more bacteria. Luckily, local options for your squirrel control needs mean prompt service and professional results.
Professional pest control services do more than remove an infestation, but educate clients and prevent squirrels from coming back. If you are noticing these agile animals hanging out around the exterior of your home or workspace, there is likely something leading them there. Removing attractants like bird feeders that hold items like sunflower seeds is the first step to prevent squirrels from sneaking indoors.
In order to bring the most humane services possible, our Toodaloo technicians encourage squirrels to leave of their own accord when possible. Sealing up entry points while leaving strategically placed exits invites these rodents to vacate your property with an inability to crawl back in. Live trapping and other methods can be used to capture and transport these unwanted critters to a safe environment, far away from your property. In order to find a method that world for you, just call an expert to assess your property!
Our Toodaloo technicians are fully trained in various methods of pest removal and extermination, capable of handling any job, of any size, professionally and efficiently. Unlike some other pest control companies our removal solutions are environmentally friendly so you know that there are no harmful chemicals being sprayed throughout your home.
