Reviews of Ontario Squirrel Removal Customers
The squirrel is not only a sleek and agile creature but also clever. If you hear sounds coming from your roof or attic at night it could very well be these creatures making all of those pesky noises! They are omnivorous eaters who enjoy both plant-based foods like fruits and nuts as well as even animal meat. In an urban setting, they eat basically anything that they can find – garbage, small animals, plants, trees, etc. It’s important to keep track of squirrel breeding cycles as well since it’s these times that will be the most difficult. If you’re hearing scratches and noise around March to June, you’ll most likely be dealing with baby squirrels as well. They breed in February and March, and the pregnancies last about 60 days. Squirrels can have up to 8 pups.

How to prevent squirrels from nesting in your home
The best way to keep squirrels out of your home is by closing all doors and windows, inspecting any open vents or chimneys for signs that they have been present before (such as tracks), capping them if necessary; also make sure there aren’t any more entry points like damaged roofs. For those who live in areas where this problem occurs often- materials like wire mesh are ideal because they can be put up quickly without causing much damage when installed correctly! They’re even able to squeeze underneath your deck if there’s even a slight opening, so you should regularly be checking any structures in your backyard that could be used as a home for squirrels.
- If you have a squirrel problem, it’s crucial to confirm that they’re all gone before caging up your chimney. There are usually young squirrel pups or babies present in March and July who might not yet be able to climb out of the habitat so check for them then too! The best way to keep squirrels out of your garden is by blocking access to all areas that they might use as toilets or latrines such as gardening patches, compost containers, and flower beds.
- To keep squirrels out from under your deck, purchase a commercial cap from the store and then attach it securely on top. These caps can be found at most stores and will keep those pesky creatures from removing or breaking them! This device should be made with heavy material so that the squirrels cannot remove or break it. Research shows these animals will chew through just about any object if given enough time!
- The best way to keep squirrel out of your backyard is by making sure the overlay are in good condition. To notice squirrel damage you need to pay attention not just to shingles but also to the soffit (the lip at the front of the roof) or fascia which can be easily damaged if an animal tries entering through them! These areas are usually left unsecured since they offer decent protection, but over time, or with shoddy workmanship, an opening for squirrels starts to form.
- To gain access to your roof, squirrels often come in, or jump in, using branches or other attachments like TV towers, antennas, etc. It’s good practice to trim back any tree branches that come close to the house, which will allow them to get on easier. The harder you make it for squirrels, the less likely you’ll have a problem.
- Guarding your home against pesky squirrels is easy with the right precautions taken. Make sure there are no signs of any attempts to enter through corners or roofs, such as claw marks on walls where they try climbing up; wrap 1m x 1m squares around those vulnerable areas so that these animals can’t get a toehold for climbing up the wall!
- To keep baby squirrels out, ensure all ventilation holes are securely covered using heavy-duty screening. Make sure to install it over open-air vents as well! It’s also important that the screening is rust-proof so that it does not weaken over time.

How we remove your squirrel problems
1. Inspect the house for any access points and entry holes.
Squirrels are one of the most common pests in North America, and they can cause a lot of damage to your home if they get inside. Fortunately, there are a few telltale signs that can help you determine whether or not you have a squirrel problem. One of the most obvious is squirrel droppings. These are typically found near areas where squirrels have been active, such as in attics, crawl spaces, and basements. Squirrels also usually make a lot of noise when they’re moving around, so if you hear unusual noises coming from your attic or walls, it’s worth checking for squirrels. Finally, squirrels often tear up insulation and other materials in their search for food, so if you find shredded paper or fabric in your home, it’s a good idea to call an exterminator. By being on the lookout for these signs, you can help protect your home from squirrel damage. The first order of business when dealing with a squirrel infestation is locating their access point so that it can be repaired after removing the pests. You should also inspect your home for any damages and make a list, along with all materials needed to fix these problems in order to come out on top!
2. Keep an eye out for Baby squirrels
Squirrel babies are often born in late spring or early summer. If you think you may have squirrel babies in your home, there are a few things you can look for. First, squirrels are nocturnal animals, so you may hear them moving around at night. You might also see them during the day if they’re getting into trash cans or raiding bird feeders. If you see squirrels during the day, it’s a good indicator that they’re looking for food for their young. Another tell-tale sign of squirrel babies is their size; squirrel babies are much smaller than adult squirrels, so if you see a small squirrel running around, it’s likely a baby. Finally, squirrel babies usually travel in groups, so if you see more than one squirrel, there’s a good chance they’re parents with their young.
3. Utilizing Trapping to Remove Squirrels.
Trapping squirrels can be an effective way to remove them from your property. However, it’s important to do so in a way that is humane and will not cause the squirrel undue stress or suffering. The most important thing to remember when trapping squirrels is to use a size-appropriate trap. Squirrels are medium-sized animals, so using a trap that is too small could result in the squirrel being injured, while using a trap that is too large could make it difficult for the squirrel to trigger the trap. Once you have selected an appropriate trap, baiting it with food that squirrels enjoy, such as chicken or fish, can help to attract them. It’s also important to set the trap in an area where squirrels are likely to travel, such as along a fence line or near a food source. Once the squirrel has been caught in the trap, it should be relocated to a new location at least 10 miles away from your property to ensure that it does not come back. With proper care and attention, you can humanely trap and remove squirrels from your property.
4. Clean up, and Fix any Damage to the House
If you’ve had the unfortunate experience of dealing with squirrels in your attic, you know that getting rid of them is only half the battle. Once they’re gone, you’re left with the task of cleaning up their mess and repairing the damage they’ve done. The first step is to remove all the debris left behind by the squirrels. This includes everything from droppings to insulation that’s been shredded for nesting material. Once you’ve got all the debris out, you can start repairing any damage to the structure of your attic. This may include patching holes in the walls or ceilings, repairing damaged insulation, and so on. Depending on the extent of the damage, this can be a big job. But once it’s done, you can rest assured that your attic is safe and free of squirrel for good.
