Effective Squirrel Control in London Performed by ExpertsWhen 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.
Your Fantastic pest control specialist will take a look around your property to determine the level of infestation.
He will figure out where the squirrels come from and how they enter your property. He will also check if there's anything that attracts them to your home - perhaps bird feeders or any other sources of easy-to-reach food. Then he will get to work.
The exterminator will resort to traps with baits to capture the pesky squirrels. They are very suspicious of poisons, and that's why the Fantastic pest controllers have developed an effective, instant squirrel capturing method.
We use heavy duty traps to catch the squirrels and then dispatch them in a safe way.
As part of your full squirrel pest control service you would need to notify us once there has been a squirrel caught so that the technician can return to inspect your property again and follow up on the work that has been carried out.
He will check the traps and dispatch of any squirrels in them. The technician will replace the bait and you would still be able to take advantage of a third visit for a final check, during which he will also collect all traps.
At the end of the treatment, your Fantastic squirrel control expert will offer you some useful advice on how to avoid future problems with annoying squirrels or other rodents bothering you.

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.
Why did the squirrel came into our home?
Squirrels enter human dwellings in search of food and shelter. Perhaps you have a bird feeder in your garden or another source of food that is easily reachable for the rodent. Or maybe your attic is not fully isolated so the squirrels have found it to be a convenient space for their nest. No matter the case, your local squirrel exterminator will find out why the pesky creatures enter your house and will give you advice on how to avoid them in the future.
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.
