Grey Squirrels (Sciurus carolinensis)
Squirrel treatments start from £110.00 + VAT
Grey squirrels unlike the Red Squirrels were introduced from the USA. Red Squirrels are protected and should never be harmed.
Reasons for control
1) They strip bark from trees in order to lick the sap. This causes damage to older trees and will kill saplings
2) Squirrels make nests called Dreys, in lofts of private houses. They often strip large areas of insulation and will gnaw cables and wires, causing fires in extreme circumstances. The noise created by Squirrels in lofts can cause great distress to some people.
3) Squirrels are attracted to warehouses which offer shelter and food. They can cause considerable stock damage.
There are two breeding seasons for Grey Squirrels, January to March & June to August. A normal litter is about 3-4 young and gestation is about six weeks.
Handling of grey squirrels should always be avoided because they can give a nasty bite
