Squirrel Removal Peterborough Services
To start the removal process, our technicians will strategically install a ‘One-Way Door’ based on the findings of the exterior inspection. In the majority of cases that we encounter, squirrels use one entry-point that they will also use to exit the property in search of food and water. The One-Way Door allows the squirrel to leave but not re-enter causing the squirrel to leave definitively. During the removal process, we never kill or harm the squirrel as we believe that humane and safe treatment of squirrels is our top priority. After installing the One-Way Door on the first visit, we then come for a second visit to remove the One-Way Door after which the technician will seal the entry-point with galvanized steel mesh. This ensures that the entry-point cannot be exploited again by the squirrel.

All our technicians are seasoned experts and can determine and locate weak spots around the premises through a full exterior inspection. We carefully look for entry-points that can be breached by squirrels and present our findings to the property owner.
Once entry-points are found, we install a ‘One-Way Door’. The contraption allows the squirrel to exit the property but not re-enter. Squirrels will leave the property in a few days after the installment of the door. This guarantees a safe and humane way to eradicate squirrel presence.
After the squirrels take their leave, our technicians will then seal the entry-points with galvanized steel mesh to prevent another invasion from happening. This also ensures that other types of wildlife cannot exploit the same entry-points. We will alsorecommend strengthening other areas of the property as well.
Squirrel Proofing Solutions
Squirrels often invade attics because they are often in search of a warm and cozy space to overwinter. They usually chew their way in by exploiting weak points around the property. Attics provide squirrels with the perfect amenities to make their stay as comfortable for as long as needed. Squirrels often use the attic as a nesting area to deliver their young in which creates another host of issues on its own. Squirrels typically give birth twice a year. The first time being in the spring and secondly in the fall.
Squirrels are mostly active during the very early hours of the morning. If you hear rustling, thumping, squeals, or see roof damage you might be indeed dealing with squirrels. Our technicians will come out to perform an inspection to determine where the squirrel is housing itself before starting on the squirrel removal phase.

What You Need To Know About Squirrels
These seemingly small creatures can cause a lot of damage that can easily add up to thousands of dollars in repair and restoration costs if the problem remains untreated. Squirrels can cause damage in every part of the property by chewing, nibbling, and clawing on the roofing material, wood, flashing, or soffits.
Once they break into the attic, they can degrade insolation material and contaminate the area with their urine and feces. Over time, these smells can be noticeable indoors.
Squirrels, just like any other rodents, spend their time chewing and nibbling on wood, and can even cause dangerous situations by chewing on wiring. This can create a fire hazard that can amount to unspeakable amounts of damage. Repairing wiring can be a costly and risky process.
Why is Squirrel Control Important to Your Home?
Squirrels create extensive damage to the property which can cost homeowners thousands of dollars. Squirrels are small, but are extremely destructive when they find their way in your property. Squirrels are especially fond of man-made structures like attics, sheds, decks, and chimneys. Squirrels can hole themselves up during the colder months in Ontario in search of warmth, shelter, and protection from the harsh temperatures. Squirrel mothers find the attics in particular an ideal spot since it can house man squirrel babies.
Typically technicians force the squirrels out through the One-Way Door. The One-Way Door is a tunnel-like contraption that give the squirrels only one choice, and that is a one-way out. After passing through the door, the door prevents the squirrel from getting in again. When babies are found, the mother often nestles them deep inside a tight space. The One-Way Door will not work. To work around this problem, technicians will carefully remove the squirrel babies by hand.
Squirrels also have razor sharp teeth that adds fuel to the fire. They will gnaw on everything that they can find to keep their teeth at an optimal length. Squirrels will go for cables, wires, aluminum, and virtually anything that lays around to help them keep their teeth grinded. Damaged wires and cables can pose a fire hazards for all the occupants and the consequences are real.
Signs of Squirrel Infestation
When winter comes around, squirrels begin to look for places they can overwinter in. The attic is the perfect spot for this since it offers protection from predators, shelter, and warmth. If you hear strange noises coming from the attic during nighttime or early morning you might need to contact Squirrel Control Peterborough for inspection and removal.
Before you hire a professional, here are a few signs that might indicate you have a squirrel problem:
• Structural damage
• Foul odor from the attic
• Scampering noises
• Damage at entry points
• Squirrel droppings
• Squirrel footprints and impressions
These are a few signs that can help identify what wildlife animal you are dealing with. If you are still in doubt do not hesitate to call the technicians for effective and safe removal.
