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. They are not only annoying but can also cause structural damage and insulation degradation. Squirrels can also be a fire hazard because they love to chew on electrical wires. You are not the only one with a squirrel problem. There are many squirrels in the United States, and they cause all sorts of trouble every day.

Shively is no exception. Squirrels love Shively, Kentucky and it’s warm climate because they can survive year-round without the threat of freezing cold weather. The mild winters in Kentucky 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. A squirrel infestation is something you don’t want to deal with. These rodents can cause significant damage to your property if they have no other place to go. There are likely to be some unwelcome guests living in your walls if you find something chewing on your attic or home.

Squirrels in the attic

Squirrels can be a pest in your home. Squirrels are persistent in their search for a spot in your attic. They will chew through any weak points on your roof or walls and gain access inside.

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. Our wildlife removal experts are available to help you immediately.

Squirrel Removal in Shively, Kentucky

The best way to get rid of these critters from your home is to call a professional wildlife removal service (like us!). Our experts at AAAC Wildlife Removal understand that these critters can be a big problem and we will provide you with the best solution to resolve your squirrel issue.

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

Professional Wildlife Trappers

Each one of our expert trappers is fully licensed and certified to handle nuisance wildlife. All aspects of wildlife removal are handled by our technicians. They have many years of experience removing animals such as squirrels, raccoons, opossum, skunks, bats, snakes, etc.

Homeowners cannot effectively trap squirrels on their own. It requires a lot of work and knowledge about the behavior of each type of squirrel. We use state-of-the-art equipment for trapping and will make sure that the critters are 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. We bait the trap with food that the critters find irresistible. The trip plate is used to trigger the trap and snap the door shut to seal the animal in the cage.

Seal all entry holes

We will trap and remove all squirrels from your attic. Then, we will close any openings greater than 1/2 inch to stop 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?

Although squirrels can be quite a pest, poisoning them is 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. It will create a terrible stench that will permeate the entire house.

Before they die, poisoned squirrels will track dangerous chemicals around your home. This can create a hazardous situation for you and the rest of your family. Additionally, poisoned squirrels will die in difficult-to-reach places like under floors or inside walls, making it very hard to remove them.

The best solution is professional Squirrel Removal by a company that knows how to get rid of the nuisance critters safely! We also provide an attic clean-up and restoration service after we have removed the animal so that you don’t experience any more surprises. 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

We make sure the trap we use to capture squirrels 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 choose areas we believe the critters are active and place our traps there.

Bait with Food They Like

What food can you use to catch squirrels? It’s important! Different baits work better for different species of wildlife, so professionals will choose the best bait for that specific type of wildlife.

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 prevent other critters from getting inside as well.

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

Squirrels will do major damage to your soffits, eaves, vents, and roofs when they are living inside your attic. They have sharp teeth that they use to widen openings and they will pull out insulation to make comfortable nests.

The damage outside can also be substantial, especially if the animals are living in your walls. The unsightly chewed-up siding or shingles will be noticed by your neighbors.

When these issues arise, it’s best to let a professional deal with the problem so that your home is restored back to its original condition. Our carpentry team is skilled and can complete all repairs quickly and effectively.

Why hire a professional?

Although it may seem easy to get rid of squirrels by yourself, the process can be more complex than you think. There are also serious risks! 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.
