Squirrel problems are the number one call we get here at Advanced Wildlife Control. They can do some severe damage to your home and yard. Squirrels will chew through your roof or venting to gain access to your attic for shelter. Once inside, a squirrel can cause all sorts of messes in your insulation and damage your wires and venting system. Squirrels will also tear up flower beds and gardens looking for food or places to store their nuts.
At Advanced Wildlife Control, we believe in humane animal removal. Therefore, we will humanely live trap and relocate the squirrels 30+ miles away from your home. We usually caught around 1,500 – 2000 squirrels each year!
The final step when dealing with squirrels is to repair any damages left behind. Our technicians will seal up any entry points or openings to prevent future animal entry. Squirrels are difficult to control, especially if you have pine trees, nut-bearing trees, or bird feeders. However, we can help prevent them from gaining access to your attic with our Ridge Guard venting.
Our customers are our #1 priority! At Advanced Wildlife Control, we want to make sure your animal problems are resolved in a timely manner. Therefore, our AWC professionals can usually be out at your property on the same day when you call or the following day.
Squirrels love to eat birdseed, nuts, acorns, and bark. If you have a bird feeder in your yard, you will have squirrels.
Squirrels can be found throughout Wisconsin in parks, forests, neighborhoods, and cities. They will build nests in tree branches, tree cavities, and holes in the ground. During the winter months, squirrels will even try to find their way into people’s attics and walls. We’ve seen squirrels gnaw straight through roofs and wood sidings to gain access into homes.
Red squirrels breed from February to March and again from June to July. Baby red squirrels are born about a month after mating with a typical litter size of 2-7 young.
Grey squirrels breed from January to February and again from May to July. Baby grey squirrels are born a little over a month after mating with a typical litter size of 2-5 young.
