Squirrels in Lofts
Squirrels chew woodwork, ceilings and strip insulation from electrical wiring
Squirrel infestations are more difficult and time consuming than other rodent pests.
Grey Squirrels enter loft spaces by climbing the walls or jumping from nearby trees and can cause a lot of damage to the infrastructure of your home.
Once inside, Squirrels chew woodwork and ceilings and also strip insulation from electrical wiring, which can potentially cause house fires.
They also tear up fibreglass insulation to form a drey (nest) and have also been known to drown in cold water storage tanks, contaminating the water supply to your home.
Where Squirrels enter loft spaces, the potential cost of the damage justifies the expense of proofing to exclude them physically, for example by blocking gaps and entrance holes.
Proofing measures must be tailored to a specific site, and the determination, ingenuity and sharp teeth of the squirrel should not be underestimated.
