Trapping is a common service provided by Trapper J for the humane removal of nuisance wildlife. Trapping services are normally the first step in solving a nuisance animal problem and proper repairs are normally required to keep wildlife out of the area they invaded. Being that every nuisance wildlife situation is different we offer different trapping plans and decide the most suitable for each situation.
One of the most common squirrel removal services we provide is for squirrels in the attic. During certain times of the year squirrels will enter homes and attics through existing holes or they will chew their way through weakened areas of roofs, vents and soffits to gain access to a warm safe attic. Once inside, squirrels can cause significant damage.
The most serious danger associated with having squirrels in your attic is a fire hazard. Squirrels are destructive by nature and like all rodents they chew on electrical wiring. By chewing on wires they strip the plastic coating, which exposes the bare copper wire and creates a very dangerous situation.
Trapper J Squirrel Removal Services also helps with the damage that also comes from chewing. Since the squirrel is a rodent, their front teeth always grow causing the squirrel to constantly chew to keep their teeth sharp and at a manageable level. In nature they chew tree bark, twigs and other natural hard items. In your attic, they chew wiring, support beams, roof braces and electrical fixtures. They can destroy your insulation by trampling it, pushing it down, which reduces your R-factor. Their urine and fecal matter will also collect in your insulation. They also cause damage in drywall by digging holes in the ceiling. This is usually the mother squirrel exercising her back leg muscles to prepare for birth. If you hear chewing or scratching in your attic don’t hesitate to call us. The Tree Squirrel should not be a welcome guest in your home.
