Classed as an invasive, non-native species, the grey squirrel is a significant factor in the decline of the native red squirrel population in the UK. They may also carry the squirrel pox virus, which is fatal to red squirrels.
In spring, the taking of eggs and young chicks by grey squirrels has a devastating effect on songbird and ground-nesting populations. They strip bark from tree trunks during May and June, damaging stands of timber and natural woodland.
Furthermore, grey squirrels frequently enter domestic roof spaces and build a nest for their young. If left unattended, they may damage woodwork, electrical wiring, and water pipes, as well as tearing up roof space insulation.
Starting with an initial inspection of your property, which will help determine the most effective, eco-friendly, and humane way to solve the problem, we will keep you informed every step of the way and will even offer specialist advice to help prevent rodents from entering your property, as well as addressing any other issues.
