What Is Humane Squirrel Removal?

While squirrels are often a friendly neighborhood animal, they can sometimes get into your home in search of food and water, create a nest, and cause an infestation to occur. When this happens, a variety of problems can ensue ranging from unsettling sounds to significant property damages. While invasive squirrels can be a nuisance, there is always a humane way to evict them from your home.

Here are a few signs of squirrels that you can look out for and some humane squirrel removal strategies that you can enlist to remove squirrels safely and effectively.

Signs of a Squirrel Infestation

If you notice scratch marks, bite marks, or droppings along floorboards or in and around your attic, then you may have squirrels in your home. Another sign that points to the presence of invasive squirrels is scurrying, scratching, and squeaking noises coming from your ceiling. Lastly, foul smells around your home are also a sign of potential squirrel infestation.

Damages of a Squirrel Infestation

In addition to the disturbing sounds that the rodents can make, squirrels will also instinctively chew through and damage wires, drywall, molding, and flooring, creating fire hazards and threatening the structural integrity of your home. Squirrels also carry infectious diseases that can spread through bites, scratches, and contaminated objects. If that isn’t enough, the foul odor from squirrel urine and droppings can engulf your home in a nauseating and lingering stench if not quickly addressed.

While squirrels can be destructive, they are simply trying to survive, so the price for such annoying behaviors should not be death. That is why you should not rely on inhumane means like snap traps, poisons, and sprays to get rid of squirrels, and instead contact humane wildlife removal professionals immediately if you believe you might have a squirrel issue on your hands.
