How Squirrel Control Works
- 1. Survey
Often, squirrels enter attics and do most of the damage there. However, that may not always be the case. This is why a skilled pest technician will arrive onsite to check where the signs of squirrel presence can be found and where their entry point is.
- 2. Treatment
Squirrel traps with bait will be placed in strategic places by the pest controller. When the animal is caught, the exterminator will come back to pick it up together with the traps. The squirrel is dispatched humanely, following all rules and laws in the UK.
- 3. Observation
As a part of the guaranteed treatments, the technician will come for a follow up visit when the squirrel or squirrels are caught in the traps. You should call us and inform us when that has occurred and schedule the animals pick up.
- 4. Prevention
When the squirrels are caught and removed from your property you will be given a detailed report of the service. You will also be advised by the technician to seal the entry points so you don't have other squirrels or different pests bothering you in the future.

As a member of the Fantastic club, you can get £30 OFF for 10 different services within 1 year.
The specialist will bring several traps when performing the squirrel removal service. After loading all of them with tasty bait, the pest controller will instruct you to keep an eye on them every 10 to 12 hours.
Once all animals are captured, the anti-pest operative will complete the squirrel control service by removing all of the traps from your property. You will have to call a squirrel pest control expert to re-set the traps after a squirrel was caught.
Guarantee: 2 extra London visits within 3 months after the first squirrel removal session.

Effective squirrel control in London performed by experts
When you think of squirrels, the image of a nasty pest infestation won’t pop into your mind. These fluffy creatures aren’t scary like rats or other types of rodents but can still pose a threat to your property. One single squirrel can be the cause for your power line problems or the reason behind those teeth marks on your house insulation. Needless to say, having this rodent running around in your back garden, no matter of its cuteness, is a bad idea.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can pest controllers work during the Coronavirus lockdown?
A: Yes, according to BPCA, pest controllers are still allowed to visit properties, in order to make assessments and implement pest control solutions. You can check our dedicated article that gives more explanation regarding pest control services during Coronavirus lockdown.
Q: Can I kill grey squirrels in the UK?
A: While it is legal to dispose of squirrels by either trapping or shooting them, this must be done without any unnecessary suffering (drowning, asphyxiation, or bludgeoning). Any violations of these regulations will result in a hefty fine.
Q: How can I pay for the pest controller’s work?
A: We request payment only upon job completion.
Q: What payment methods do you accept?
A: We accept bank transfers and card payments with Visa or Mastercard.
Q: Why did the squirrel came into our home?
A: Squirrels enter human dwellings in search of food and shelter. No matter the case, your local squirrel exterminator will find out why the pesky creatures enter your house.
Q: Are there any natural squirrel deterrents?
A: Planting daffodils or marigolds is a great way of keeping squirrels off your property. If you want them to leave your veggies alone, sprinkle the area around your plants with cayenne pepper or a mixture of water and vinegar.
Q: Do you work on weekends and bank holidays?
A: Yes, we work 7 days per week from 8am to 6pm and during the night.
