Effective Squirrel Control in London Performed by Experts

squirrel control in London


When you think of squirrels, the image of a nasty pest infestation won’t pop into your mind. These fluffy creatures aren’t scary like rats or other types of rodents but can still pose a threat to your property. One single squirrel can be the cause for your power line problems or the reason behind those teeth marks on your house insulation. Needless to say, having this rodent running around in your back garden, no matter of its cuteness, is a bad idea.

What you need to know about the service and prevention tips

Once the professional has set the traps, you’ll need to check them every 10 to 12 hours. After the rodent has been caught, call the pest controller to remove it and re-set the trap, if necessary.

Prevention advice:

  • Remove all food sources.
  • Prune tree branches, located near the roof, in order to eliminate access.
  • Block all possible entry points.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can I pay for the pest controller’s work?

A: We request payment only upon job completion.

Q: What payment methods do you accept?

A: We accept bank transfers and card payments with Visa or Mastercard.

Q: Why did the squirrel came into our home?

A: Squirrels enter human dwellings in search of food and shelter. No matter the case, your local squirrel exterminator will find out why the pesky creatures enter your house.

Q: Are there any natural squirrel deterrents?

A: 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.

Q: Do you work on weekends and bank holidays?

A: Yes, we work 7 days per week from 8am to 6pm and during the night.

Q: Can I kill grey squirrels in the UK?

A: 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.
