Squirrel Trapping & Removal


Raccoons R Us, serving Palm Beach county, Broward county, Martin county, and South Florida, provides helpful advice and strategies to safely remove wildlife from your attic, fix any damage they have caused, and prevent the problem from happening again. The Eastern Gray Squirrel is the most commonly found nuisance animal in attics across America. If you've got a critter in your attic, it's likely a squirrel. An attic is like a big-hollow tree to a squirrel -- a great place to live, raise young, use insulation for nesting material, and chew on wood and electrical wires!

What Kind of Noise Do They Make?

Squirrels are most active in the morning and evening, so most people report hearing the sounds at that time. Squirrels are fast and light, so much of the noise sounds like fast scurrying or running, usually in the attic, near the edge of the roof, and sometimes in the walls or chimney.

How Did They Get in My Attic?

The squirrels in your attic either chewed their way in, or they took advantage of an existing hole or gap in the architecture. Unscreened vents, gable vents, roof vents, and soffit vents make great entry points. Squirrels almost always enter the house somewhere at roof level.

Trust Us to Solve the Problem

As with any animal, the best method is trapping, removal, and relocation of the squirrels. In many cases, a one-way exclusion door will work. The owner of Raccoons R Us designed a tunneling system more than 30 years ago and more than 400 companies use it today for squirrel trapping and squirrel removal without having to kill the animals.

Preventing New Squirrels in the Future

The most important step once all the squirrels are gone is to seal shut all the entry points with steel wire, which rodents can't chew through. It's also a good idea to clean the attic and remove the nesting material and droppings.
