Squirrels are some of the most annoying rodents to have in your house. They can get into all kinds of places, including your attic, and they cause a lot of damage while they’re there. They are not only annoying but can also cause structural damage and insulation degradation. Squirrels can also be a fire hazard because they love to chew on electrical wires. If you have a squirrel problem, you’re not alone. Squirrels can be found in many areas of the United States and they cause problems for homeowners every day.

Highland is no exception. Because they can live year-round without freezing cold, squirrels love Highland Utah. Because of the mild winters in Utah, squirrels can stay active throughout winter. This means that homeowners are more likely than ever to see them at their homes searching for food and shelter. A squirrel infestation is something you don’t want to deal with. These rodents can cause significant damage to your property if they have no other place to go. There are likely to be some unwelcome guests living in your walls if you find something chewing on your attic or home.

Squirrels in the attic

Squirrels can be a pest in your home. Squirrels are persistent in their search for a spot in your attic. They will chew through any weak points on your roof or walls and gain access inside.

Attics are like squirrels’ playground. They can leap from one rafter or another and find their way into any ventilation system or hole they have made in your attic.

As soon as you notice these critters in the attic, do not wait for them to cause bigger problems. Our wildlife removal experts are available to help you immediately.

Squirrel Removal in Highland, Utah

Calling a professional wildlife removal company like us is the best way to remove these critters from your house. Our experts at AAAC Wildlife Removal understand that these critters can be a big problem and we will provide you with the best solution to resolve your squirrel issue.

We use humane and up-to-date techniques that will not harm the squirrel. We use humane and up-to-date techniques to trap the squirrels and make sure they don’t return.

Professional Wildlife Trappers

Our expert trappers are fully licensed and certified to handle nuisance animals. Our technicians are well trained in all aspects of animal removal and have years of experience with removing wildlife such as squirrels, raccoons, opossum, skunks, bats, snakes, etc.

Homeowners cannot effectively trap squirrels on their own. It requires a lot of work and knowledge about the behavior of each type of squirrel. We use the most up-to-date trapping equipment and will ensure that the critters get removed safely and humanely.

Animal removal usually is a three-part process – here’s how we do it:

  1. Setting up traps to catch the animal
  2. Seal all entry holes to prevent re-entry
  3. Inspection and repair of wildlife damage both inside and outside your home

Setting traps to catch a squirrel

We use either one-door or two-door traps and set them in areas where we see squirrel activity. We bait the trap with food that the critters find irresistible. The trip plate is used to trigger the trap and snap the door shut to seal the animal in the cage.

Seal all entry holes

After trapping and removing all squirrels in your attic, we close up any openings larger than 1/2 inch across to prevent more wildlife from getting into your home.

Inspection and Repair of Wildlife Damage

Finally, we perform a complete clean-up and decontamination of your attic to remove any trace of the nuisance animals. Then we install new insulation and re-install vents as needed before finishing with an overall restoration service for your attic.

Should I Get a Squirrel Exterminator?

Although squirrels can be quite a pest, poisoning them is a big no-no. Poison is best used for ant and termite colonies, not for wildlife. If you use it for squirrels, there is the real possibility of having dead squirrels inside your walls. It will create a terrible stench that will permeate the entire house.

Poisoned squirrels, before dying will also track the dangerous chemicals all over your home creating a dangerous situation for you and your family. Not to mention that poisoned squirrels will die in inaccessible places, like inside walls or under flooring which can be quite difficult to remove without proper equipment or training.

Professional Squirrel removal by a company that is experienced in safely getting rid of nuisance critters is the best option. We also provide an attic clean-up and restoration service after we have removed the animal so that you don’t experience any more surprises. This includes cleaning and decontamination, as well as insulation replacement and wall repairs if needed.

Our Squirrel Trapping Process

  • We first determine if trapping is necessary or if exclusion-based methods will be more effective.
  • We choose from a dozen of so traps, depending on the size of animal we’re trying to trap.
  • Place traps in places that we know the animals like to use.
  • Bait the traps with food that squirrels find irresistible.
  • Remove and relocate trapped animal.

Trapping or Exclusion

When removing squirrels, traps may not always be necessary. Sometimes, exclusion-based methods are sufficient. We use exclusion devices such as one-way doors to allow squirrels to escape but keep them from returning inside the house after they have left.

Choosing the right trap

We make sure the trap we use to capture squirrels is just right. There are many traps available for squirrel removal. Our team of experts will pick the best one for the job.

Place Traps in Key Areas

Knowing where to place the traps is one of the most important parts of this process. We will pick areas where we think the critters are active and place our traps there.

Bait with Food They Like

What food do you use to catch a squirrel? It matters! Different foods work better for different wildlife so it’s best if the professionals choose what kind of bait goes into the trap.

Remove the Animal

After we capture the squirrels, It is often pretty straightforward to remove them from your property. We first ensure that they are out of your home or attic before sealing all other entry points shut. This will also prevent any other pests from entering your home.

Attic Clean Up and Decontamination

After living in your attic for a long time, squirrels will surely leave a terrible mess. There will be feces, hair, urine, and more that have to be dealt with. They will attract other pests like rats and cockroaches which can spread disease and illness throughout your home. To get rid of all traces of the pests, we will do a thorough attic cleaning and decontamination.

Wildlife Damage Repair

Squirrels will do major damage to your soffits, eaves, vents, and roofs when they are living inside your attic. Squirrels have sharp teeth and will use their sharp teeth to open up openings. They also pull insulation out to create comfortable nests.

The damage outside can also be substantial, especially if the animals are living in your walls. The unsightly chewed-up siding or shingles will be noticed by your neighbors.

When these issues arise, it’s best to let a professional deal with the problem so that your home is restored back to its original condition. Our team are masters at carpentry and can make all of these repairs in a timely and effective manner.

If these critters have caused serious damage to your home or business, call us today for Wildlife Damage Repair!

Why hire a professional?

Although it may seem easy to get rid of squirrels by yourself, the process can be more complex than you think. There are also serious risks! Squirrels can carry parasites such as mites, bugs, and several diseases like Lyme disease, rabies, and leptospirosis.

If not treated immediately, these diseases can prove fatal. Furthermore, trying to do any kind of wildlife removal yourself is illegal in Utah as rabies is a concern anytime you’re dealing with these wild animals.
