How do I know if I have a squirrel problem?

If you think you’ve spotted signs of a squirrel infestation, you’re in the right place. This quick guide to mice will help you determine if it is in fact squirrels you are dealing with.

There are a number of tell-tale signs that you have a squirrel infestation:

  • Scratching or rustling noises coming from your attic or wall cavity.
  • Droppings and smell of urine in the loft area; our technicians can help you confirm the source of the droppings. 
  • Sightings of squirrels around the roof area.
  • Holes or damage in your insulation or exterior.

Grey squirrels were introduced to the UK in the victorian era and have since colonised 90% of the squirrel population in the UK. This has led to a decline in the numbers of the native red squirrel, a protected species. 

Grey squirrels have a silver-grey fur coat with white underside. They grow to between 24-26cm in length and have long whiskers, big eyes and small ears.

Grey squirrels create nests in trees called dreys; these are easy to spot in winter when there are fewer leaves. Without available trees, squirrels will make themselves home in an attic or loft space.

At Beaver we practice Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This is a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, cultural, physical and chemical tools in a way that minimises economic, health, and environmental risks.

We follow the following 5 steps:

  • Inspection – In line with the CRRU guidance, ensuring a through survey is carried out is essential. This will be a full environmental assessment identifying: pest infestations, access points, sources of food, water & harbourage, proofing options, and any external factors which could result in pest infestations i.e overgrown vegetation.
  • Exclusion – proofing is carried out where possible by our technicians, any larger proofing jobs need will be identified and explained to the customer. Proofing is the best defence against rodent ingress.
  • Restriction – Restricting the sources of food, water and harbourage will make your home less appealing for pests and can be an effective way to prevent re-infestation.
  • Communicate – Communication is perhaps one of the most important parts of the process as a whole. At every stage of this process our technicians will be communicating their actions and importantly the reasons for their actions for you. Explaining the importance of exclusion and restriction will in the long term benefit you as you will reduce the risk of repeated infestations. It is very important that the recommendations the technicians provide are followed to support you in having a pest-free home.
