Frequently Asked Questions

How do I keep squirrels out of my garden?

To prevent squirrels from doing further damage, you can try to flood their burrows. The squirrels will then be forced to search for another shelter. Alternatively, you can use live traps with peanut butter or sunflower seed baits and then release the squirrels at another location.

Can you kill grey squirrels in the UK?

While it is legal to dispose of squirrels by either trapping or shooting them, this must be done without any unnecessary suffering (drowning, asphyxiation, or bludgeoning). Any violations of these regulations will result in a hefty fine, so a good alternative is to either visit your nearest vet or hire a professional pest controller to handle your problem in a respectful manner.

How can I safely trap a squirrel?

Squirrels should be trapped in the so-called live traps. There are many trap models available on the market, with the most popular options being cage traps, repeater traps, and one-way doors.

Are there any natural squirrel deterrents?

Planting daffodils or marigolds is a great way of keeping squirrels off your property. If you want them to leave your veggies alone, sprinkle the area around your plants with cayenne pepper or a mixture of water and vinegar. If the squirrels keep coming back for more – get a dog or a cat.

Do squirrels damage trees?

No, squirrels will simply shelter inside a pre-existing knot or a decomposed hole. If no such hole is available, they will instead climb up the tree’s crown and build nests out of sticks and leaves.

Why do squirrels eat tree bark?

The reason for this is not yet clear, although it may have something to do with them searching for food, which they may believe is hidden underneath the bark layer. On rare occasions, squirrels will resort to gnawing on tree bark, but even then they won’t cause any damage.

Do squirrels gnaw on plants?

Their diet usually consists of acorns, walnuts, sunflower and other seeds. However, these are not always available, so squirrels may switch to fruits, vegetables, or flowering plants instead.
