Squirrel Exterminators — January 24, 2007
The arrival of the cold weather has resulted in more traditional "Winter Nuisance Wildlife" complaints for us over the last month. We have been busy responding to calls for squirrels in attics, mice in walls and basements and believe it or not we're still getting calls for bats. The majority of our work has been squirrels. Both gray and flying squirrels have had us running all over our service area setting traps and repairing entry-points. Very typical for January. See our recent projects below for more details.
Foxboro Squirrel Exterminators
We completed a squirrel removal service at a home in Foxboro that had a severe infestation of gray squirrels. The squirrels had managed to chew around some old work and made themselves comfortable in the attic. I observed several nests and even a dead squirrel lying in the middle of the attic. We removed 7 squirrels from this one attic.
Flying Squirrel Exterminators
The calls for flying squirrels have been keeping us very busy over the last month. Every year we see more and more of these crafty nocturnal critters. This particular house only had one small hole that was about the size of a golf ball. This one small hole in the roof allowed over 15 flying squirrels to enter this attic. The "party" that the customer had described in her attic is now over.
Brookline Squirrel Exterminators
On a recent squirrel removal service in Brookline MA, I had squirrels running all around me as I worked on the roof of the house. As you can see in the pictures these squirrels created a large hole in the corner of the roof.
Massachusetts Squirrel Extermination
I took these pictures as I walked into the attic during the inspection. This attic was home to an adult female gray squirrel and several young "teenage squirrels". I have always used the term "teenage squirrels" to refer to juveniles that are old enough to run around an attic at 100mph but not old enough to leave the attic and forage for food on their own yet. The squirrels in the pictures below are teenagers.
Massachusetts Attic Cleanout
This project was a severe raccoon infestation at an old historic house in Massachusetts. What you see in the pictures below is a big pile of raccoon feces in the attic of the building. These animals had lived in this attic for at least 5 years. There were piles of feces like this throughout the attic. It took a 4-man crew two whole days to complete this attic cleanup service. This was one of the dirtiest, filthiest, most rancid-smelling attics I have ever seen. I feel dirty just writing about it. Visit our attic cleanout page for more information on these services.
