Intro to Squirrels 202: "Squirrels in My Attic"
SquirrelNet is glad to bring you a well-rounded squirrel education. In this short course, we give you advice on what to do if you have unwanted squirrels in your attic. This advice applies equally well if squirrels have invaded your walls, your patio or if they are generally unwanted on parts of your property.
Hear scratching in your attic or walls and think you may have an unwelcome squirrel? Our advice is simple: Call a Pest Control specialist. They will come, typically trap the squirrel in a cage and will then release the squirrel in a more natural habitat.
The best way to do this is to search for pest control for your city on Google (link opens in a new window).
It is important that you do not try your own means to get rid of the squirrels in your attic. You may end up hurting both yourself and the squirrel in the process. Baiting a squirrel with poison is cruel and could potentially contaminate you as well. Other strategies put you at risk too. Please treat squirrels with respect and please be safe.
