How to prevent squirrels from living inside your attic? Same day pest control and wildlife removal in Brampton, Ontario.
Brampton is one of the fastest-growing cities in Canada. Today, the city's population exceeds 600,000. Brampton, like many Canadian cities, has a large number of squirrels living in its green spaces as well as the homes of its residents.
How can Brampton residents keep squirrels away from their homes?
Squirrels enter homes through holes chewed in roof edges, roof vents, building exteriors, around doors and windows, as well as through plumbing and ventilation outlets. Squirrels cause extensive damage inside houses, chewing electrical wiring as well as wood framing. Occasionally, they will tear through the drywall and enter the living spaces of a home.
Squirrel populations are fast-growing in the Greater Toronto Area primarily because of the rodent's ability to give birth twice a year. Unlike many other larger pests such as raccoons and skunks, squirrels have babies two times a year, in the spring and summer months. During each of these baby seasons, female squirrels, on average, give birth to four kits.
Regular roof maintenance and inspection are among the most effective strategies homeowners can take against squirrels. It is essential to maintain roofs in good condition, especially to avoid the formation of cracks and holes. One of the most common consequences of roof damage is water leakage into the house. There are many reasons that can cause deterioration or damage to a roof, generating serious problems in buildings and even affecting the health of the people who live or remain there. Damaged roofs also frequently provide access to buildings to various animals including squirrels. We recommend that you get your roof inspected at least once a year to identify problems before animals manage to gain access.
Squirrel-proofing is another highly effective squirrel prevention technique. Seal all entrances such as gaps around vents, roof edges, doors, and windows with sheet metal, concrete or other similar products. Make sure chimneys and fan openings are properly covered. Windows and doors should be screened tightly. Place tightly fitting seals under all exterior doors. Hiring a professional animal removal firm is the best way of squirrel-proofing your home in Brampton, Ontario.
Squirrels that enter structures have to be quickly and humanely removed. TSR will use a variety of exclusion and removal methods to take out the existing squirrel population in your Brampton home. We can use exclusion systems that solve your problem as quickly as within a few hours.
Squirrels love frequenting properties with large trees. However, they also live in areas where there are few trees. So cutting and trimming trees is not a good solution.
There is no easy solution when it comes to having a squirrel free structure. Unfortunately, squirrel repellents are not as effective as advertisers claim.
Squirrels dig burrows that are capable of causing enormous amounts of damage to your property. They can loosen the foundation of your property and shake different structures, causing a potential health risk to you and your entire family. There is nothing that keeps many of those heavy rodents away than a well-groomed patio. If you want to prevent them from causing actual structural damage to the home, make sure you are vigilant enough about your property.
