Squirrel Removal Services — November 13, 2006
The month of October always brings big changes to the nuisance wildlife industry. The bat calls subside and the calls for squirrels and mice start to come in regularly as the cold weather arrives. October of 2006 was no different. We finished up a lot of outstanding bat removal projects just in time to get buried with calls for squirrels. The mice have also came back in full force and mouse proofing hhas been taking up lots of our time. Flying squirrels have also returned to their winter homes (meaning houses) and we have gotten quite a few calls for them as well. Below are some of the interesting projects that we completed in October of 2006.
Newton Squirrel Removal
WWe completed a flying squirrel removal project at a home in Newton last week. Most people wouldn't think of Newton as having enough undeveloped land to support a healthy population of these woodland squirrels but over the last few years we've been getting more and more calls for flying squirrels in Newton. This attic was home to dozens of these nocturnal critters. As you can see in the picture below they had destroyed all of the insulation in the attic. We also found piles of nut shells that they had brought into the attic. The homeowner had caught a flying squirrel inside the house and put it in a trash barrel. I removed the squirrel from the barrel and shot this video of the flying squirrel inside the barrel.
Boston Squirrel Removal
While performing a routine squirrel control service at a home in a downtown Boston I had a curious gray squirrel hanging around on the roof with me for quite some time. This squirrel had a lot of red-brown in it and was a very beautiful animal.Click here to see the video of this curious animal checking me out.
Watertown Squirrel Removal
We are starting to see the beginning of squirrel season. With the first cold nights of Fall we are getting calls about squirrels chewing their way into houses in an effort to stay warm. In the job featured above the customer called and told me that she had just started hearing a lot of noises in her attic that day and that she had never heard them before. This was because the squirrels had just chewed their way into her attic that day. You can see the fresh woodchips/splinters/sawdust on the ground below the damaged gable vent. Within two days we had her home squirrel-free and squirrel-proof.
Rhode Island Squirrel Removal
These pictures are from a squirrel removal job in Providence RI. The picture on the right is a gray squirrel that has a piece of caution tape around its neck. The squirrel must have chewed its way through a piece of the tape and it got stuck around its neck. Very strange. Just another city squirrel getting into trouble. Visit this page to see another example of a Providence squirrel removal project that we completed.
