Squirrels are commonly found all over Toronto. They can damage gardens, property, and be a general nuisance. Additionally, they breed quickly and can be found in both public and private areas. They eat nuts, seeds, and even insects depending on the food available. Squirrels also can be loud, disturbing the sleep and peace of the residents it shares the property with. Many residents ask if it’s possible to remove a squirrel from their premises on their own. Our company offers professional squirrel removal in the GTA region.
How To Remove A Squirrel From Your Premises
The first step in pest control is to decide if the animal is a pest. Most homeowners with squirrels on their properties do not find the animals to be pests. If the reason you wish to remove squirrels is because they are causing property damage, then there are solutions that do not require removal. Some examples of damaging including chewing through homes, damaging vegetable gardens, eating food not intended for squirrels such as pet food and bird feed, and more. Homes can be squirrel-proofed by removing food that is left out, using nets to cover vegetables and areas that you wish to keep squirrels out of, and using natural deterrents such as spraying them with a garden hose.
One common method of removing a squirrel is to capture it and relocate it in a distant location. Commercial animal traps are available in retail stores that sell general pest control products. Follow the instructions that came with your purchase and once the squirrel has been caught, relocate it at least 10 miles from your home. The problem with this is that squirrels do not simply live isolated from one another. If another squirrel spots that your home is a free territory, it may decide to live there instead.
Some ways to deter squirrels from choosing your property as its residence is to clean up any food sources around, sealing any holes in your home that leads from the outside to the inside, and to seal off any possible natural shelters for squirrels.
Check your local animal bylaws to see which pest control methods are legal in dealing with squirrels. Shooting with a gun, poisoning animals, and using lethal traps may be outlawed, depending on the area that you live in. It is generally recommended that you contact a professional wildlife control organization for advice and/or services.
