Squirrel Control in Brighton
One of our clients was hearing scuffling and scratching noises coming from their attic. It was keeping them up at night and causing unwanted anxiety! Our wildlife control technician, Jay, went over to inspect. He went up into the attic, and sure enough there was a family of squirrels living there. The baby squirrels were removed and placed in a baby box, which would allow the mother to retrieve and relocate them. A one way door was installed for exit of the mother squirrel. After treatment, the homeowner was finally able to sleep soundly again! Thanks Jay for a job well done.
Squirrel Breeding Season
Like most wildlife, spring time is baby season for squirrels. For squirrels, a litter of babies is called a “kit”. A kit of baby squirrels usually consists of three to four pups. They will usually give birth twice a year, once in early spring around March to April, and another time in the summer around July to August. Mother squirrels can invade into your home, especially in the attic or even the chimney, where they can make a warm nest and give birth to their pups. This also allows them free access to come and go as they please, gathering supplies and food. Because they have strong teeth that can chew, they can access your home by chewing away wood, soffit and fascia.
