Getting Rid of Squirrels In Your Crawl Space

With crawl space squirrel infestations, Critter Control experts will implement several methods of control in order to remove the squirrels. Sometimes it can be difficult to get squirrels out of crawl spaces, especially if parts of the crawl space are inaccessible. If this is the case in your home, then baiting and trapping will be the best method for squirrel removal. It is important to get squirrels out of crawl spaces as soon as possible in order to avoid any internal damage, which could include chewed wires, torn insulation and odors from droppings.

Squirrel Dangers and Damage

Cracks and crevices in home foundations allow squirrels into crawl spaces. Once inside, the rodents use the space as a den for food storage. These pests carry fleas as well as the ticks that transmit Lyme disease. Squirrels can also spread illnesses like tularemia.

Additionally, squirrels gnaw to file down their teeth, so infestations often lead to damaged wood supports and frayed wires. Shredded insulation in crawl spaces or attics is also common.

Squirrel Control

Traps can be useful, but proper placement requires skill and patience. Attempting to catch the rodents increases the risk of injury and infection.

When faced with a squirrel in a crawl space, the best option is to contact professionals. The trained experts at Critter Control have the knowledge and tools for the efficient, humane removal of squirrels and other rodents.
