How to Know if You Need to Get Rid of Squirrels:
You can determine if they need to get rid of squirrels in or around homes or other buildings by asking the following questions:
- Are there noises in the ceilings or walls?
- Are these noises scratching/scurrying noises? Do these noises occur early in the morning?
- Are there chewed holes around the building? In siding, gutters, construction gaps or trim?
- Are there more squirrels than usual surrounding the building?
If any of these questions apply, call the specialists at Critter Control that know how to get rid of squirrels to help you assess your squirrel situation.

The most effective method to get rid of squirrels is to trap them. Critter Control will set traps around the building, monitor all entry points, and release the trapped squirrels as they are caught.

Squirrel Damage and Damage Identification
Squirrels may occasionally damage forest trees by chewing bark from branches and trunks. Pine squirrels damage Ponderosa pine, jack pine and paper birch. In the Southeast, fox squirrels damage loblolly and other pines. Home owners can get frustrated if they don't know how to get rid of squirrels.
In residential areas, squirrels sometimes travel power lines and short out transformers. They gnaw on wires, enter buildings, and build nests in attics. They frequently chew holes through pipelines used in maple syrup production.
Squirrels occasionally damage lawns by burying or searching for and digging up nuts. They will chew bark and clip twigs on ornamental trees or shrubbery planted in yards. Often, squirrels take food at feeders intended for birds. Sometimes they chew to enlarge openings of bird houses and then enter to eat nestling songbirds. Flying squirrels are small enough to enter most bird houses and are especially likely to eat nesting birds. These problems alone are reasons to call someone that knows how to get rid of squirrels.
