West Chester, OH Squirrel Trapping Experts
We understand how to remove wild animals in a safe way so that neither any of us nor the animals are injured. Though not generally the case, squirrels can become aggressive when they feel threatened, when a mother is protecting her young, or when their food source has been removed.

Many people do not realize that the need for deodorizing and sanitizing, is vital also. It is always possible that one of the squirrels may die in the attic or in the walls. This can lead to a horrible odor, bacteria, and the attraction of insects and other types of pests.
Nuisance Squirrel Damages
Squirrels chew continuously in order to hone their teeth and keep them healthy. This need to incessantly chew can create severe damage within your home and outside. They will chew pretty much on anything including wood, ductwork, pipes, wires, or anything else they can get their tiny mouths around.
The damage that they can do by chewing alone, can cause plumbing and heating issues and even start a fire.
Aside from chewing, squirrels’ can cause structural damage to buildings. Since they are nest builders, insulation is easily damaged, which can be costly to fix, let alone the loss of energy resulting in an increase in utility bills.
Squirrels also leave their feces and urine around which can lead to a disgusting odor and even health issues.
Trapping Vs Repellents For The Removal Of Nuisance Squirrels
Now let us discuss repellents. They simply do not work! So many people try to take care of their squirrel infestations by using things like strobe lights, urine-based repellents, and ultrasonic noise emitters to no avail.
The process for effectively solving your squirrel problem is removal (via trapping), exclusion, and habitat modification. Our team of squirrel removal experts will employ various methods to get the animals out of the attic or space they now found to be their home, including setting traps and using one-way doors and tunnels. These doors are small devices that are placed over the entry points. They are made to allow the wild animal to leave but not get back in.
This is not always a long-term solution because they can return and try to chew through the doors and other structures that are not secured. This is just 1 phase of the removal process.
Once our experts are confident that the wild animals have been removed from the attic or other area, we will walk you through the exclusion process. Exclusion is the assessment, identification, and repair of the weak points of the structure that allow the squirrels to gain access to the attic or other areas. This is a vital part of the process; our team has removed the animals correctly, so now we need to ensure that they will not return.
Squirrel Damage Repair and Cleanup Solutions
Once the squirrels are gone and all of their possible entry points have been repaired and sealed, it’s time to clean up what they have left behind; urine, feces, hair, oils, nesting materials, and food. Cleaning up all of these remnants is vital. If not done the right way, the odor left behind will attract other pests. Also, the biological material, such as feces, and urine, can lead to possible diseases like Leptospirosis or Salmonella.
The Clean-Up Process
All biological waste will be vacuumed, and the matted insulation will be removed. Next, we use enzyme-based cleaners to deodorize and disinfect the areas. After, we can repair any damage to pipes, wiring, and ductwork that the squirrels have caused. Our West Chester squirrel removal experts in Ohio can handle the entire process from beginning to end. When we leave, you can rest assured that the squirrels are gone and will not be coming back.
More than 75 percent of the U.S. population lives in urban areas. While the growth of cities and subdivisions displaces some wildlife, many species continue to live in the habitat available in parks, undeveloped parcels of land, and vacant lots, along the stream and river corridors, and in our backyards. Their presence can provide recreational and educational viewing opportunities. Viewing wildlife in the backyard is exciting for many people, especially children. People and wildlife can peacefully coexist in most situations. However, there may be times when conflicts arise.
