Pest squirrels are divided into three groups for classification:

While squirrels are often portrayed as harmless animals, all three groups of squirrel species pose a significant threat to your residential or commercial property. Squirrels, including fox squirrels, eastern gray squirrels, and red squirrels, do most of their damage to the exterior of the property -- digging holes in yards, stripping bark from trees, and stealing food from gardens. But squirrels will occasionally build nests in attics, crawl spaces, and eaves -- leaving scat and potentially carrying diseases like Lyme disease. 

Squirrels also enter homes by chewing holes through soffits, or fascia boards. They’ll easily squeeze through flimsy screening in roof top attic and louvre vents, and they’ll utilize existing building gaps, such as dormers or roof junctions, and chimneys. 

Under no circumstances should you approach nuisance squirrels. If you have a squirrel intrusion, it’s important to contact a professional as soon as possible. Our technicians have the tools and experience to safely and humanely remove the squirrels and repair the home to keep them out.

super professional and very nice service
They earned more than 5 stars! So appreciated the timeliness! Michelle has tremendous experience and helped me understand how they were going to tackle the job as there were a few possibilities and means to accomplish. I appreciated how she kept me informed along the way. It really eased my mind. Additionally, she took care to keep drywall dust to a minimum and removed soiled insulation. I highly recommend Critter Control of Jacksonville.
