Squirrel on a fence

When you imagine squirrels, it’s easy to think of the cute, bushy-tailed cartoon characters. While you might not think of them as pests, they can be incredibly destructive.

There are two types of squirrels living in the UK. The rare native red squirrel is protected by law because they are endangered species.

On the other hand, grey squirrels are an invasive species in Britain originating from North America and were introduced to Great Britain in 1876. They have since spread across the country and largely displaced the native red squirrel.

Like other rodents, squirrel’s teeth never stop growing, which means that they constantly need to gnaw. This can lead to damaged soffits, gutters, telephone lines, cables and property. They can make their home in trees, woodland or even roof space.

If they find entry points into your home or business premises, squirrels can be a major disturbance, cause a lot of damage and be difficult to remove. They can be territorial and become aggressive when disturbed, so you need to hire professional squirrel pest control services to deal with the problem.

Pest In Peace has extensive experience dealing with grey squirrel infestations across Cheshire. Call 07980 597423 to book your squirrel pest control today.

Got in touch with the team after finding a 'little' surprise in the loft. Mike was super helpful from the off, with options & advice. They even visited to back up their advice, which required no action on this occasion. But was very grateful for the Peace of Mind and professional service provided nonetheless. Thanks guys.

Had an issue with rats in our garden after some building work.(decking removed) Called up Mike and was given some tips to try before needing their help (moving bird feeders) their advice did work but I felt we needed to be sure so asked them to come and lay bait boxes. No sales pitch not pushy, just very polite and professional. Turned up on time snd communication was excellent. Didn’t invoice until work was complete and Mike was sure we were happy. Would definitely use again (although and I mean this in the nicest way possible - I hope we won’t need to! ) Excellent service - thank you.
Alex from Pest in Peace is the BEST in the business! Been having him exterminate my home for years and I’m very happy with his professionalism and service! If you’re looking for a reliable exterminator, this is your best choice!

Brian answered all my questions, very professional and found where the problem started, so now we have the all clear the entry point has now been sealed. Highly recommend this company, they are 100% superb.

I had a mole problem, called these guys and they quoted me to get the job done. They arrived bang on time on all occasions and because they managed to solve the problem with only two visits, they charged me less than the original quote. A brilliant, honest and reliable service/company, I'd recommend and will certainly use again. Thanks guys
Mike from Pest in Peace was so helpful and sorted our problem out efficiently and humanely. Would recommend 100%

Called the lovely Mike yesterday at Pest in Peace to clean and sanitise our Colshaw mobility bus after a visit from some rats before we parked it up for lockdown. Of course as ever, excellent service as he turned up today, cleaned out anything left by our visitors then used a sanitising fog to make sure it was all safe. Although I've known Mike for a long time as he went to school with my son, It had completely slipped my mind that he is also a qualified mechanic! What a bonus as he replaced the dead batteries and pumped up the tyres, what a hero! Thank you so much Mike, would recommend to anyone without hesitation.

Signs Of A Squirrel Infestation

Squirrels have distinctive furry tails, making them very different in appearance from other rodent pests such as mice and rats.

However, squirrels are often difficult to see in the flesh because they’re secretive and diurnal, meaning they’re usually most active in the early morning and late afternoon.

As such, it can be difficult to tell if you have squirrel problems on your property. Some early signs of squirrel activity include:

  • Squirrel Droppings: Droppings are one of the most common signs of rodent pests. Squirrel droppings look like dark brown to black pellets, which sometimes contain undigested food, such as seeds or nuts.
  • Scratching Sounds: Squirrels have sharp claws, which often make a scratching sound on wooden beams and floors while they run. You may also hear thumping noises from the weight of these large rodents jumping around in the rafters of your home.
  • Tooth Marks: Like rats and other rodents, squirrels have sharp teeth that never stop growing. As a result, they have to gnaw on hard materials to keep their teeth down. So, you might notice chew marks on areas such as structural beams, fascia boards, door frames and other areas of your home.
  • Squirrel Nests: Squirrel nests look a lot like bird nests, made up of a combination of twigs and soft materials, such as shredded loft insulation. These nests can be found in trees or your attic space. If you see these nests, do not disturb them, as squirrels can become aggressive. Instead, hire Pest In Peace to remove the squirrels.

Common areas of squirrel activity include loft spaces and garden outbuildings, as squirrels need soft nesting materials and often use loft insulation. If you think you’ve seen or heard signs of squirrels in your home, look in your loft to check for additional indicators, including droppings or damage to your insulation materials. Then, contact us to get your squirrels off your property and keep them away.
