Should I hire a pro, or remove squirrels myself?

If you want to know if you need to hire a professional or not for squirrel removal, keep in mind that it may depend on the level of the infestation. When you only have two squirrels around your home, you can scare them away and you can remove the sources of food which attract them to your place. However, if the squirrels have made their home on your property and they already have their babies in the ceiling, attic or roof, then you have to call a professional.

If you have a heavy infestation in the home and you do not know the best way to remove these squirrels, then you should hire a professional. The best thing about the professionals is that they will make sure that they have removed all the squirrels and they will prevent future infestation. The extermination of the squirrels is immediate when you decide to hire a professional of animal control. These are just some of the reasons why you have to contact animal control for a severe squirrel infestation.

Even if the squirrels are not known to carry rabies, they have some serious infections which can result in complications if they are not handled in a professional manner. This is why you do not have to put yourself at risk trying to remove the squirrels on your own when there are professionals who can offer an easy solution in a safe manner. They will ensure that your home is squirrel free if you hire them to get their service.

The wildlife removal experts do not all charge the same amount of money. Some will charge a huge amount, and this is why you have to compare the charges of different companies before you can make the choice. Make sure that you have the highest quality but at an affordable price. You should start with the nearest pro in your area. When the professional is near you, it will be easy to respond to you as quickly as possible, and they will give you a lasting solution to a squirrel infestation.

If you want to get rid of the squirrels on your own, you should start by finding the holes in the attic, and they can be along roof lines or the eaves. You may set a squirrel trap at the roof near entry holes or you can mount a one way exclusion to let the squirrels out but not come back. Even if this may sound simple, in some cases it is complicated, especially when there are babies with the squirrels you want to keep away. The squirrels may refuse to enter the trap if you don’t mount the one-way trap in a proper manner.
