Squirrel Removal / Control Services
As squirrels are considered game in many states, trapping the pests may require the procurement of a special permit. Furthermore, though squirrels are not known to be particularly aggressive, it is always safer to contact a trained professional rather than attempt to handle wild animals without the proper knowledge or assistance. The wildlife specialists at Summit Environmental Solutions are skilled at identifying the different species of squirrels and handling squirrel removal properly and humanely.
Do squirrels harm people or property?
As non-aggressive creatures, squirrels are capable of relatively peaceful cohabitation with humans. However, they also have the capacity for destruction. In yards, squirrels will dig up buried nuts and seeds, which leaves holes and disrupts the overall presentation, and chew the bark of ornamental trees and shrubbery. They also trample on and eat from gardens, feed on the contents of bird feeders, and chew on birdhouses.
Inside homes, squirrels nest in attics and can chew and gnaw on wooden support beams and walls. They also endanger themselves and humans in the immediate area by chewing on electrical wires. Additionally, squirrels often travel on power lines, which can lead to electrical shorts.
