Squirrel removal

Squirrels are one of the most common wildlife animals in North America. They live in close proximity to humans in urban, suburban, and rural areas. While they play an important role in the ecosystem to improve soil health and growth of new vegetation, squirrels can become problematic for people when they build their nests on properties.


How to get rid of squirrels

An infestation of squirrels in your home can put your home at risk of damage and cause health concerns for your pets and family. With almost 100 years of pest control experience, Ehrlich has developed industry-leading procedures for the removal of squirrels from properties.


Trapping, coupled with exclusion services, will be used to remove squirrels from your yard and to prevent them from coming back.


Exclusion involves closing off any entry points in your yard that may allow the squirrels to get in. One-way doors are exclusion devices that allow the squirrel to exit the structure but not re-enter. 

Ehrlich specialists attend regular training seminars to stay up-to-date on the most effective pest control solutions. Ehrlich’s squirrel removal services follow state and municipality regulations. All specialists performing services involving wildlife management are certified to do so as required by the state.

How to keep squirrels away

Squirrels can be a tremendous pain to residential property owners, especially if they create a nest in your attic. Though these DIY methods may not completely solve the problem, the tips below will help to deter squirrels away from your property.

  • Trim plants and shrubs in your yard. Squirrels don’t like a lot of open space, so eliminating heavy vegetation in your yard removes any option of shelter for them.
  • Get a motion-activated sprinkler. Squirrels are skittish and will be less inclined to go to your yard if they have been startled by something.
  • If you like bird feeders, use a squirrel-proof bird feeder. Bird feeders attract squirrels and other pests.
  • Trim tree branches back away from your house as much as you can. If branches are touching your home, squirrels will use those as access points to climb onto your roof.

If squirrels have infested your home or business, contact Ehrlich. A specialist will remove the squirrels from your property and make recommendations so that your yard does not become infested again.
