Proper Squirrel Removal

Hi my name is Brendan Mangnitz and I am the owner of 24/7 Wildlife Control. I have been in business now on my own for nearly five years and I have been in this industry for close to 10 years working with friends, family and other companies while learning, training and understanding the wildlife removal & nuisance animal control industry. I started off by graduating from the University of South Florida with my Business Management degree. After this degree I got into the field of wildlife control because I knew there was a big issue with squirrels getting into people's residences and I realized that there are not many professional squirrel removal companies. I wanted to be one of the most professional squirrel removal companies and squirrel trapping companies out there. You want to hire professional and honest squirrel removal and squirrel trapper that is properly licensed, insured, bonded, has workers comp, but additionally you want to hire squirrel removal companies and squirrel trappers that show up in uniforms, have wonderful customer service, have clean trucks and respect both of you and the animals like the squirrels being trapped.

Professional squirrel trapping generally involves the squirrel trapping company to initially come out to your home and perform a free inspection and evaluation in order to determine that you are actually having an issue with squirrels or that you may have squirrels in the attic. During this free inspection and evaluation, the professional wildlife and squirrel removal company will get in the attic and take a look at everything that's going on and identify whether or not you do have squirrel in your attic. We will look for squirrel poop and we will also identify the squirrel poop based on squirrel smell and even take a look and listen for the sounds of the squirrels. Once we are in the attic and it is confirmed that you are having an issue with squirrels, a professional squirrel removal company will then get on the roof and walk the exterior of the property to identify the areas that the squirrels are using to get into your home.

Squirrel bait is used to catch squirrels and it will depend on the age and maturity level of the squirrels. What I recommend for people trying to do this themselves, or if they want to make sure that the company that used is doing a good job, is to look for certain signs with squirrel trapping. You can look at the picture of the squirrel trapping to the left. This is a live squirrel trap. I put the bait for the squirrel in the back of the trap. The idea is that the squirrel will smell the bait; squirrel bait will smell good to the squirrel and the squirrel will enter the trap and the door will then close behind it. The squirrel is now trapped and can not get out of the trap. This is humane because the trap will not kill or harm the squirrel.

Squirrel poison is very dangerous! You never want to poison squirrels! Always trap the squirrels. There are no effective deterrents. In my opinion, for squirrel removal, the best way to get rid of squirrels is to trap them by using a bait such as peanuts for squirrel trapping. Peanuts are a good bait for squirrel trapping but every now and then you may accidentally catch a rodent. If you catch a rodent in your squirrel trap you should let someone remove it and reset the trap. Marshmallows and oatmeal pie cookies or a great trap idea and a certain trick for catching squirrels. This squirrel bait is attractive to more juvenile and baby squirrels; it's sweeter and they generally seem to enjoy it.

Customers ask me all the time how to get rid of squirrels permanently and the simple answer is once you catch that squirrels and you know that there are no more squirrels in the attic, you need to close off the access pointclose off the access point(s) to prevent more squirrels from coming in. This is called an exclusion; you definitely want to hire a professional squirrel removal company to perform exclusion work and squirrel removal from the home in order to guarantee that no more squirrels come in or back.
