Squirrels can be quite a nuisance in your home. They can get into all kinds of places, including your attic, 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. Squirrels can also be a fire hazard because they love to chew on electrical 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.

Fort Knox is no exception. Squirrels love Fort Knox, Kentucky and it’s warm climate because they can survive year-round without the threat of freezing cold weather. Because of the mild winters in Kentucky, squirrels can stay active throughout winter. This means that homeowners are more likely than ever to see them at their homes searching for food and 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 can be a pest in your home. They are persistent when it comes to finding a place in your attic, especially if you have weak spots on the roof or walls that they can chew through and get inside of your living area.

Attics are like playgrounds for squirrels. They can jump from one rafter to another, find their way in through any ventilation system or other hole that they have chewed into your attic.

As soon as you notice these critters in the attic, do not wait for them to cause bigger problems. Call our professional wildlife removal experts immediately!

Squirrel Removal in Fort Knox, Kentucky

The best way to get rid of these critters from your home is to call a professional wildlife removal service (like us!). AAAC Wildlife Removal experts understand that squirrels can be a problem. We will help you find the right solution.

We employ humane, up-to-date methods that do not cause harm to the squirrel. We use humane and up-to-date techniques to trap the squirrels and make sure they don’t return.

Professional Wildlife Trappers

Our expert trappers are fully licensed and certified to handle nuisance animals. Our technicians are well trained in all aspects of animal removal and have years of experience with removing wildlife such as squirrels, raccoons, opossum, skunks, bats, snakes, etc.

Trapping is not something that homeowners can effectively do on their own, It involves a lot of work and knowledge about the behavior and activity patterns of different types of squirrels. We use the most up-to-date trapping equipment and will ensure that the critters get removed safely and humanely.

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 can use one-door or double-door traps, and place them where there is squirrel activity. The trap is baited with food that is irresistible to the squirrels. The trap is then triggered using a trip plate which releases a door that will seal the animal inside the cage.

Seal all entry holes

After trapping and removing all squirrels in your attic, we close up any openings larger than 1/2 inch across to prevent more wildlife from getting into your home.

Inspection and Repair of Wildlife Damage

We then clean up and disinfect your attic. We then install insulation and reinstall vents as necessary before proceeding to a complete restoration of your attic.

Should I Get a Squirrel Exterminator?

Squirrels can be a huge nuisance to have around your home, even so, using poison is just a big no-no! Poison should only be used to control termite and ant colonies. It is not recommended for wildlife. If you use it for squirrels, there is the real possibility of having dead squirrels inside your walls. This will cause an awful smell that will permeate your entire home.

Poisoned squirrels, before dying will also track the dangerous chemicals all over your home creating a dangerous situation for you and your family. Not to mention that poisoned squirrels will die in inaccessible places, like inside walls or under flooring which can be quite difficult to remove without proper equipment or training.

Professional Squirrel removal by a company that is experienced in safely getting rid of nuisance critters is the best option. After we remove the animal, we offer an attic cleaning and restoration service so you don’t have to worry about the mess in your attic. This includes cleaning and decontamination, as well as insulation replacement and wall repairs if needed.

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

Sometimes traps may not be necessary when removing squirrels. Sometimes, exclusion-based methods are sufficient. Exclusion means using one-way doors that allow the squirrels to leave but prevent them from getting back inside after they’ve left the property.

Choosing the right trap

When we set out to catch squirrels, we make sure that the trap that we pick is just right. There are a number of traps that are available for squirrel removal and our team of experts will pick the one that is right for your job.

Place Traps in Key Areas

Knowing where to place the traps is one of the most important parts of this process. We will pick areas where we think the critters are active and place our traps there.

Bait with Food They Like

What food can you use to catch squirrels? It matters! Different foods work better for different wildlife so it’s best if the professionals choose what kind of bait goes into the trap.

Remove the Animal

After we capture the squirrels, It is often pretty straightforward to remove them from your property. Before sealing any other entrance points, we double-check that the squirrels are gone from your attic or home. This will also prevent any other pests from entering your home.

Attic Clean Up and Decontamination

Squirrels will leave a terrible mess in your attic after living there for an extended period of time. You will need to deal with a lot of feces, urine, and hair. These will attract other pests such as cockroaches, rats, and mice which will spread illness and disease throughout your home. We will perform a thorough attic clean-up and decontamination to remove all traces of the pests.

Wildlife Damage Repair

When they live in your attic, squirrels can cause major damage to your roof, vents, and soffits. Squirrels have sharp teeth and will use their sharp teeth to open up openings. They also pull insulation out to create comfortable nests.

If animals live in your walls, the damage can be even more severe. The unsightly chewed-up siding or shingles will be noticed by your neighbors.

It is best to have a professional handle these problems so your home can be restored to its original condition. Our team are masters at carpentry and can make all of these repairs in a timely and effective manner.

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! Squirrels can carry parasites such as mites, bugs, and several diseases like Lyme disease, rabies, and leptospirosis.

If not treated immediately, these diseases can prove fatal. You can’t do any type of wildlife removal in Kentucky. Rabies is an issue whenever you deal with wild animals.
