Evict Unwanted Squirrels From Your Home with Our Humane Squirrel Removal Service
Cute and cuddly as they may be, squirrels are an unwanted nuisance once they’ve taken up residence in your home! Our wildlife specialists can safely and humanely remove your squirrels and ensure they do not return.
Is The Sound of Squirrels In Your Attic Driving You Nuts?
Not only are these wild animals disrupting your sleep – but they are making a mess of your insulation, chewing on your wires, and creating a real fire hazard! Our animal control service experts will let you sleep soundly again.
Our Squirrel Control Process
Our first step is always to undertake a thorough site investigation. We will look for points of entry, assess the severity of your squirrel infestation, and discuss eviction options with you. Since squirrel holes can admit other creatures like roof rats or bats, we’ll check for signs of other infestations.
The primary methods of removing squirrels is by installing one-way doors and using live traps. One-way doors permit squirrels to exit your home, but not re-enter. When we determine squirrel trapping is appropriate, our specialists will return to collect and relocate the squirrels.
Exclusion, Sanitizing, and Damage Remediation
After the squirrels have been removed we will seal up all available entry points, preventing them from being able to return. Next, we’ll thoroughly clean and sanitize the impacted areas. Lastly, we’ll repair any damage they may have caused – squirrels are notorious for shredding insulation to make their nests and chewing on electrical wires!

“We are so happy with Cramer Pest Control. We have been clients for several years for pest control. During a routine service call, CJ alerted us to a pipe leak that we had no idea was occurring. As a result, we were able to have a plumber and contractor come and fix the issue. It could have turned into a much bigger issue. Thank you!”

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if I have a squirrel in my home?
Other than by seeing a squirrel enter your home, most homeowners will notice that they have a squirrel problem by the noise. You’ll hear scurrying and scratching noises coming from your walls, floors, or ceilings – generally loudest at night.
From the outside you may be able to see their point of entry – a hole leading into your roof with gnawed edges is a great indicator that you need to call a wildlife removal service!
What attracts squirrels to my home?
Squirrels are attracted to areas with a good food supply. In some cases this will be outside of your control, for example acorn-producing oak trees. However, other food sources like bird feeders are our own responsibility. Use bird feeders which prevent squirrels from gaining easy access and clean up fallen bird seed regularly.
What do you do once you catch the squirrel(s)?
All squirrels that are caught using live traps are relocated back into the wild. With proper exclusion in place, these squirrels will not be able to return to your home.
How can I prevent squirrels from getting into my home?
Just like for raccoons and roof rats, the best way to prevent squirrels from getting into your home is by keeping your roof and eaves in good condition and ensuring that any entry points are well sealed.
Try to avoid having overhanging tree branches or bushes which reach up to your roof – as these provide the squirrels with easy access to your home.
Squirrels will exploit existing holes or damaged areas, but are generally foiled by a roof that is properly maintained.
What kind of damage can squirrels do to my home?
Squirrels, despite their small size, are capable of causing severe damage to your home. These critters commonly gnaw on wires, and squirrel damage is an oft-cited cause of short circuits and even house fires. Even when they aren’t busy chewing through your wiring, they tear up your insulation to use as nesting material.
Beyond the damage they cause to your home, squirrels introduce fleas and ticks into your home and their urine and droppings can spread diseases like leptospirosis.
How do squirrels get into my home?
Squirrels can squeeze through remarkably small openings and commonly enter homes through gaps in your roof’s eaves or soffits. In some cases they will gnaw through plastic chimney caps or wooden shutters in order to gain access to your attic.
