Squirrels

Squirrels

There are several species of squirrels: Gray, Red, Fox and Flying squirrels.

They range from 3 inches to 20 inches long and they vary in color from red to black depending upon the species. They have a small head, a long slender torso with a bushy tail and the rodent typical large incisor teeth.

They can breed throughout the year with 2 litters per year consisting of 1 to 6 per litter. Their senses are more acute than rats and mice and they prefer feeding on acorns, pecans, seeds, insects, berries, bird eggs and small mammals.

While rats and mice are nocturnal, Squirrels are diurnal, which means they are active during the daylight hours. They will nest in trees, attics, cornices and are excellent climbers.

Squirrels can cause extensive damage to a home as they nest and multiply. They may store acorns and other food stuffs under the insulation in an attic and chew through HVAC ducts in an effort to build a nest. There have been several documented cases of a home burning down as a result of electrical shorts caused by gnawing squirrels.

Squirrel Removal

Gulf Coast Exterminators takes a multi layered approach when it comes to controlling Squirrels. As with any pest problem the initial step is that of a thorough inspection and evaluation. Our technicians thoroughly inspect each property to determine the proper exclusion methods required to control squirrels at your property.

If we find that squirrels are indeed a problem then we move on to the second step which is applying a repellant to the affected area. This is a short term solution at best but it can give the property owner a level of confidence as our control measures move on to the third step which is an exclusion job.

An exclusion job can be simple and quick or may require third party contractors if the work is extensive. Most jobs however can be done by one of our technicians in 2 to 4 hours. Gulf Coast Exterminators warrants most exclusion jobs for a period of one year but speak with your technician for warranty details on your property.


Squirrels are a popular Houston pest we get service calls for to perform Wildlife Control. Call us today at (281) 449-7404 and let Gulf Coast Exterminators help you with your Squirrel problem.
