Squirrels are some of the most annoying rodents to have in your house. They can get into all kinds of places, including your attic space, and they cause a lot of damage while they’re there. Their presence is not only an annoyance but it will also lead to additional problems like insulation deterioration and structural damage. Additionally, squirrels are a fire hazard as they love to chew on electric 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.

Houston is no exception to this. Squirrels love Houston TX and it’s warm climate because they can survive year-round without the threat of freezing cold weather. The mild winters in Texas allow squirrels to stay active all throughout the winter months, which means homeowners are more likely to see them around their homes looking for food or shelter. However, one rodent infestation that you may not want to be dealing with is a squirrel infestation on your property since these rodents will cause a lot of damage while they’re there if they have nowhere else to go. If you notice that something has been gnawing away at your home or attic then chances are good that you have a few unwelcome visitors living inside your walls!

Squirrels in the attic

Squirrels in attics can be a big problem because they can chew through your home’s exterior and cause serious damage to your insulation and other parts of your home. In addition, the droppings from squirrels can become a real problem as well. Squirrel droppings have been known to carry diseases that other rodents might be carrying. In addition, the urine from these animals will soak into your insulation which can lead to additional health risks down the line because it’s going to smell really bad when this happens!

Professional Wildlife Trappers

Trapping is the best way to have a pest problem removed from your property. The professionals at AAAC Wildlife Removal can handle all types of animal removal, including squirrels and other rodents that might be infesting your home or attic space.

We provide humane squirrel removal services for these animals so they don’t suffer as we relocate them to another area away from your home. Squirrel trapping is best left to professionals who know what they’re doing. If you attempt to do this on your own, you risk harming the squirrels and there’s also a chance that they’ll be able to get back into your home.

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 either use a 1-door or 2-door traps depending on the size of the squirrel or that we’re trying to catch. We then determine optimal placement of the traps, position our bait on the trigger plate, and set it by pulling back the lever.

Seal all entry holes

After the squirrel is caught, we must prevent other squirrels or other rodents like mice and rats from entering your home. We seal all entry areas, whether it’s through your roof or through the walls of your house.

Inspection and Repair of Wildlife Damage

After all entry holes are sealed, it’s important to inspect the inside and outside of your home for wildlife damage. All damages identified will be repaired by our team of wildlife damage repair specialists.

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

With squirrel pest removal, sometimes traps won’t be necessary, and in these cases we will use exclusion-based methods. This is a process where we make sure all entry areas are sealed shut so that no rodents can get back into your home!

Choosing the right trap

When we set out to catch a squirrel, we want to make sure that the trap is just right. There are many different types of traps and our team will choose the best one depending on what kind of animal we’re trying to catch.

Place Traps in Key Areas

We put traps in places that we know the animals like to frequent, which is usually in highly trafficked areas where they can find food. We sometimes put traps behind objects that might attract them or near a common entry point into your home!

Bait with Food They Like

Next, bait the trap with food that the animal will find irresistible. Squirrel bait might be varied – it could be peanuts, walnuts, pet food, or even plain old peanut butter smeared into a plate that will attract them into the trap.

Remove the Animal

After the animal has been trapped, it’s important to remove them so they won’t be able to get back into your home. We make sure that this is done in a humane manner while avoiding any further harm to these animals!

Should I Get a Squirrel Exterminator?

Using poison to get rid of squirrels is never a good idea because they can die in your walls or attic and cause a mess to clean up. In addition, the smell from dead rodents is just awful! If this happens then chances are you’ll have to call us to remove the dead animal from your home.

There are pest control companies that like to use poison because it’s cheap and easy to apply. Poisons are best for termites and other insects, not squirrels.

The best way to deal with any squirrel problem is by using humane trapping or exclusion. These animals can be relocated to another area outside of your home which makes it easier for them to survive in the wild without causing problems for you!

Attic Clean Up and Decontamination

Squirrels will usually leave a large mess behind in your attic and walls with their droppings and urine. Not to mention the grease, hair, nest lining, scraps of food and other debris that’s left behind by these animals. This encourages mold growth and attract insects like cockroaches, flies and ants which can spread disease.

Furthermore, the smell will be awful and the pheromones in them will attract more of these animals to your home. We provide complete attic clean up and decontamination services for homeowners in Houston who need their space back from these wild animals.

Why hire a professional?

It may seem like it’s easy to get rid of squirrels on your own, but the process is more complex than you might think and there are some serious risks involved with doing this! For example, squirrels have been known to carry parasites likes mites and bugs as well as several diseases such as rabies, Lyme disease, and leptospirosis.
