San Diego Critter Tip of the Month

How to get Squirrels out of the Attic: Squirrels can be very dangerous to the inhabitants of the house if they start living in the attic. They can chew up electrical wires which can lead to fire hazards and they can also cause damage to your furniture and urinate and make it noisome. If they start to reproduce, that will be a source of further trouble for you and they will be harder to handle. One of the species of squirrels that is the eastern gray squirrel reproduces two litters of young per year and has a gestation period of 44 days. The progeny can grow up to be adult in a short period of time.

There are many conventional methods of squirrel removal such as using ammonia and moth balls, however let me tell you something, there is no easy way to get them out as these methods do not completely guarantee the removal of squirrels. The best way to remove the squirrels is the strenuous way and there are no shortcuts to that. You have to physically draw them out by setting traps so that none of them is left in your house to perturb you.

One method of squirrel removal is by setting squirrel sized cages in different parts of the house where the squirrels have been found to leave a trail. This will eventually trap them in the cage and then you can show them their way out. The most favorable places to set up cages are points of their entries such as a hole they must have chewed to make their way into the house. You can also set the traps considering the time of the day, the squirrels are mostly active. They are mostly doing their daily stints during the morning and the evening.

Another method of trapping the squirrels is by using one way doors. However, there are certain disadvantages of using one way doors. One of which is that if the squirrel enters a one way door where there is a lot of wood. It will get frantic and ultimately start to chew up all the wood to make an escape route.

Squirrels leave dropping on their trail which has a very bad odor and it can lure many other animals to live in your home and permanently inhabit there. It is advisable to ensure that there is no further scent of the squirrel after it is completely removed from the attic. They urine and defecate which is also quite unhygienic for the people living in the house. Another option is hiring a wildlife professional to do your work. He will certainly ensure that no further trouble is caused by the squirrels.
