Another rodent in King of Prussia, the squirrel, is a collector that stores its treasures in unique places, like your attic, yard, trees, chimney, or vents. The gray squirrel is the most common kind in King of Prussia neighborhoods, along with less common varieties, like red, fox, and flying squirrels. Watching squirrels raid birdfeeders, scurry from tree to rooftop, and raid the garden can be enjoyed until you realize their behaviors damage your property.
If you have squirrels in your yard, you likely have a supply of their favorite foods, including seeds, nuts, berries, mushrooms, grains, flower buds, and bird eggs. You may also have a squirrel nest in an unwanted area. If in your attic, expect to find shredded insulation, gnawed beams, and wires. If they build a nest in your heating and cooling system, you will see an increase in your utility costs. Because squirrels actively mate all year, you may find a family of squirrels living in your home.
Squirrels see everything in shades of black and white. However, with their keen senses of smell and hearing, they are great at detecting even the slightest movements. Getting rid of squirrels requires knowledge of trapping regulations and seasons and local requirements for testing squirrels for diseases.
Wildlife experts have this knowledge and proper equipment to get rid of a squirrel or a family of squirrels. Traps, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture are some methods qualified technicians use. In addition, they can implement exclusions like sealing access points, removing food sources, and installing tree or roof barriers to prevent climbing. They can also repair and sanitize areas affected by squirrels.
