Houston Squirrel Removal

The two most common kinds of squirrels found in Houston, Texas, are the eastern gray squirrel and the fox squirrel. Their yard antics can range from entertaining to annoying as they tirelessly try to outwit bird feeders and bury nuts in lawns. The act becomes much less pleasant when the animals move indoors. In Texas, we are particularly susceptible to squirrel invasion due to squierrels seaking our home as shelter during the cool evenings.

Squirrels can be found in so many places and situations. If you have an older house with a crawl space beneath it, it can create a cozy living space for these pesky critters. Common places squirrels can be found:

  • Attics
  • Walls
  • Soffits
  • Crawl spaces
  • Beneath decks
  • Chimneys
  • Stove pipes 
  • Attic Exhaust Housing

Common Squirrels

  • Eastern Gray Squirrel
  • Fox Squirrel

The noises they produce are often the first indication for local homeowners that the attic has been breached. In addition to making disturbing sounds, squirrels also habitually chew on things like electrical wiring, creating the risk of fire. Their nests can also pose a threat if they are built aroud heating exhaust ducts or inside chimneys.

Animal Control is an important part of having a safe, secure, and healthy home. If yout let animals penetrate your attic then your sleep wont be as restful as it could be, you might have unwanted alergies, and insects might be brought into your house. Our certified professionals are capable of handling all your pest control needs. Your home is where you should be in control.

How To Get a Squirrel Out of the House

Squirrels in the house can be a real issue, especially if you’re sensitive to loud, constant noises. Not only are Texas squirrels unconcerned with keeping the peace, they are also very destructive and messy inside the confines of a building. The good thing about a squirrel is that it is not inside the home because it wants to eat your leftovers or chew on your wires. The squirrels see your home as a source of shelter. Most of the time these critters will be found in eaves or soffits where they have quick access to the outside. If you have trees next to your home, it can create the perfect situation where a squirrel can leap from their playground to their shelter (your house).

You should get squirrels out of the house because they:

  • Damage to electronics and wires
  • Leave messy droppings
  • Create unhealthy living conditions for occupants

Getting rid of a squirrel can be easy, but it depends on the number of animals and the location of their nest. Obviously, one or two squirrels will be easier than taking out a dozen. And a nest in on of the far reaches of your attic may be easier than in the opening below your deck.

You should never use snap traps or poison for squirrels. A big issue with poison is once the squirrel dies, you need to locate the carcass. And then you have an animal carcass filled with deadly toxic chemicals resting within the confines of your home. The most effective means of extermination are repeater traps or exclusion doors. The exclusion door is a good method to use, allowing squirrels to exit the building but not to re-enter. The only serious complication will be if baby squirrels are in the home. Sadly, this is the case the majority of the time. Finding infant squirrels can be a boon for your trapping efforts. If place in a cage trap, the babies will always attract the mother squirrel.

Don’t use these methods to solve your squirrel problem:

  • Poison
  • Snap Traps

Do use these methods to solve your squirrel problem

  • Repeater Traps
  • Exclusion door

Squirrels in the attic are there to have baby squirrels. Extraction of baby squirrels from an attic, chimney or fireplace is a very unique process. It should be professionally resolved to prevent the Squirrels from entering the home and endangering family and pets. When young are born sounds described as a barking or chattering can be heard.
