Professional local squirrel control in Woodley 

With nearly three million grey squirrels living across the UK its not surprising that these are regular pests in homes around Woodley and the surrounding area, the rodent equivalent of Mission Impossible seems to be their goal to secure a site in the loft of a building in which to overwinter.

Squirrels in the loft? Don't worry we have the solution! 

The grey squirrel does not hibernate and so when the temperatures start to drop overnight in late October these industrious animals turn their attention to finding someplace warm and that will be inside your loft.  
Able to jump a distance greater than five time their body length, squirrels will have been testing out their territory for some time looking for the ideal winter quarters.  
Along with their jumping ability, squirrels can simply run up brick walls making their way up onto the roof where they will gnaw through wood, plastic and even thin sheet steel to get inside.

Frequently asked questions about squirrels 


How do squirrels get in the loft?  

Squirrels are great climbers and scaling a vertical brick wall is easy for them, as well as their climbing ability they can jump around five times their body length meaning that any overhanging tree branches are all that’s needed to give the grey squirrel easy access into your loft. 

What do squirrels eat?  

These animals are true omnivores in that they eat just about anything, acorns are a staple of their diet from the autumn onwards but they will attack young birds in the nest, rob nests of eggs and strip tree bark to eat the sugary layer of soft wood just underneath – this is why squirrels are a real pest. 

Do squirrels hibernate?  

Squirrels do not hibernate in the way that bears do, but they stay active all year round including during the winter months and they will hoard food supplies to get themselves through this period. During this time you will often see squirrels visiting garden bird feeders for seeds and nuts. to see what they can scavenge.
