Squirrel Removal

Squirrel removal in Worcester, MassachusettsSquirrels can be nuisance to homeowners & businesses, by frequently using homes and other buildings as nesting areas. The most common of nuisance squirrels is the Eastern Grey Squirrel, which loves to chew its way into attics and roof soffits, build a nest to raise their young, and store their nuts and seeds for supplemental food supplies to help them overwinter.

Eastern Grey Squirrels are typically 16-18 inches long and weigh about a pound. They’re active year-round, with two peak breeding times, summer and winter. Because they’re accustomed to humans, they can see your home as their own home too. Squirrels will happily establish their home in your home where they can become a significant contributor to a potential fire hazard. Squirrels bring in dry nesting material in love to gnaw & chew through electrical wiring while attempting to file down their teeth.  Exposed wiring can easily spark and start a fire. Fire hazards aren’t the only risk nuisance squirrels cause. They also pose a health threat to humans by way of the urine and feces which they leave behind; and to add insult to injury, it also smells bad and attracts other squirrels. In many cases, it’s a good idea to have your attic decontaminated if it’s evident squirrels have taken up residency there. Salmonella Infection is a very significant concern when you enter into an area where squirrel urine and feces is evident. It is also very possible that you may fall victim to other significant health risks and diseases spread by the fleas and ticks brought in by squirrels. When fleas and ticks fall off or detach from a squirrel, humans now become possible hosts for these insects which can carry lime disease, cat-scratch fever, typhus, plague, Babesiosis,  Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichiosis,to name a few.

Squirrels in New England also have a tendency to get trapped between walls, fall down chimney flues, and pop out of fireplaces. If trapped within a wall or fireplace and unfortunately dies, deceased squirrels can cause a significant odder when decomposing along with attracting and being the food source for flies and other types of Insects.
