When thinking of rodents, it is easy to get stuck on rats and mice alone. The reality is that, depending on what part of the world you are in, these pests come in many shapes, sizes and temperaments. Sure, in North America, rats run rampant and mice scurry the land but property owners also have to contend with squirrels. These bushy-tailed beasts might be adorable from afar but having them inside your home or workspace is not cute. If you think getting rid of mice is tough, imagine them being five times as large and just as stubborn! Instead of letting squirrels take over your space, have a Toodaloo expert escort them out!
Spotting a squirrel scurrying up a tree or leaping from branch to branch makes it seem like they are quite happy outdoors. This might be true during summer months but as temperatures drop, these animals get cold just like the rest of of us. Now, out in the forests, dens are made but within city limits, it is much easier to cozy up inside an attic. Human homes are warm, well-stocked and have an infinite number of resources that animals need to thrive. In this case, a little breaking and entering seems obvious for rodents. Once inside, squirrels begin to make themselves comfortable. This mean searching out meals, digging up supplies for nests and gnawing away on doorframes on other materials. The longer that these pests are allowed to trail attics, basements and crawlspaces, the more damage is being done.
There are plenty of household traps and baits that can be used to catch smaller rodents but squirrels are a tricky bunch to evict. One of the biggest disadvantages to this particular infestation is that squirrels can sneak in at any level. Sealing up ground-level entry points wont do much to keep them from ventilation openings or gaps in roofing. This sort of attention to detail is what sets our experts apart from the competition.
Squirrels are large and can become frantic easily. Removing a single squirrel from your house might mean separating a mother from her babies and that leads to clawing and scraping to get back inside. This is why Toodaloo offers humane removal technique that allow squirrels a working exit but does not let them re-enter.
