Think you may have a squirrel control problem? Critter Control in Washington can effectively help you assess your squirrel situation, while eliminating the cause and keeping you well informed through the entire process.
The most common complaint associated with squirrels is noise. Our squirrel control customers in Washington will hear noises within their homes, typically at sunrise. At first light, squirrels will begin to scurry around, looking for food. Occasionally, customers will find the entry point from the outside – the hole where the squirrels are getting into the home – but typically the first signs of a squirrel control situation are the irritating noises they make in the early hours of the morning.
When customers in Washington call us, we ask them a series of questions to help determine if and what type of squirrel control is necessary. It is important for customers to track what time of day they are hearing noises, how long they have been hearing noises and in what area of the home or building they are hearing noises so we can implement the most ideal squirrel control plan.
Squirrels will enter buildings for shelter and nesting. Squirrels in Washington have litters of babies in the spring and in the fall, and commonly end up in the attics of buildings. If squirrel control is not implemented immediately when the squirrel situation is identified, the population of squirrels living in or around a building will continue to grow. Every time a new litter grows up and leaves the nest, they begin to look for places to build their own nests, which often ends up being in other areas of the building. It is important to implement squirrel control in your Washington home or business in order to prevent large populations of squirrels. If squirrels are ignored, Critter Control of may find holes in every corner of your home!
When squirrels invade your home or business in Washington, they can cause significant damage. Inside buildings, they tend to chew on wires and destroy insulation in attics and walls. On the outside, they damage siding, gutters and construction gaps by chewing holes for access inside.
The most effective method of squirrel control is trapping them. Critter Control will set traps to catch the squirrels around your home or business. We then monitor every hole to ensure there are no squirrels still coming and going. Once we have removed all squirrels from the building, we will seal the entry points.
