Squirrel removal

Seasonal Alert: very high

Spring awakens from its winter slumber, and so do the squirrels in our area. Emerging from their dens, they become more active in search of new nesting sites. Unfortunately, your attic, basement, or crawl space might seem like the perfect spot for these bushy-tailed opportunists.

Squirrel removal

Seasonal Alert: High Activity

With spring in full swing, this is a crucial time for local squirrels. New mothers are caring for their second litters of the year and busily collecting leaves to build nests. To find food more efficiently during these warmer months, most species often become especially active just before sunrise or as dusk falls – so keep an eye out! Should you encounter any issues with our furry friends Aspen Wildlife Control can help – we’re experts at safely removing them from homes around Ottawa-Gatineau.

Keep an Eye Out for Squirrel Activity:

  • Unusual droppings or a scratching sound around potential entry points like eaves or chimneys can also be signs of unwelcome guests.
  • Torn soffit panels or damaged roof shingles might indicate squirrels have already gained access.

Signs of a Squirrel Infestation

Squirrels can leave a trail of evidence in their wake. Listen for daytime noises in your attic or walls, watch for mysterious droppings and scratching sounds, and inspect your roofline and eaves for signs of damage. Torn soffits, chewed entry points, and disturbed insulation in the attic can all indicate unwelcome squirrel guests. If you suspect a squirrel infestation, don’t hesitate to contact us for a squirrel removal appointment. More detailed information on identifying a squirrel problem can be found on our dedicated signs of a squirrel infestation page.

Humane Squirrel Removal Process

At Aspen Wildlife Control, we prioritize the safety of both squirrels and homeowners throughout the removal process, adhering to all applicable provincial regulations. Depending on your location, these regulations will be set forth by either the Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry (OMNRF) for Ontario or the Ministry of Forests, Fauna and Parks (MFFP) for Quebec. Here’s a detailed breakdown of our steps to ensure a successful and humane squirrel eviction:

Inspection and Assessment:

We’ll conduct a thorough inspection of your property to identify all potential entry points and signs of squirrel activity in accordance with best practices outlined by the relevant provincial ministry.

This includes searching for droppings, damage, and gnaw marks around your roofline, eaves, attic, and crawl spaces.

We’ll also assess the presence of any dependent babies, which require special considerations during the removal process as outlined in the provincial Animal Welfare legislation.

Safe and Humane Squirrel Removal:

Depending on the situation, we’ll utilize various exclusion techniques approved by the relevant provincial ministry to remove the squirrels without causing them harm.

This may involve one-way doors that allow squirrels to leave your property but prevent them from re-entering, following guidelines established by the ministry.

Live traps may be used in specific situations, but these are always monitored closely to minimize stress on the animal, as mandated by the provincial Animal Welfare legislation.

All captured squirrels will be relocated to a suitable habitat away from human residences, following provincial guidelines for wildlife relocation.

Preventative Measures:

Once the squirrels are removed, we’ll seal all identified entry points using materials that are durable and squirrel-proof, ensuring long-term peace of mind for you and complying with provincial recommendations for preventing future infestations.

    Our experienced technicians will handle the entire process efficiently and professionally, keeping you informed every step of the way. You can rest assured that your squirrel problem will be resolved effectively, humanely, and in accordance with relevant wildlife regulations.

    Evaluate And Remove

    Aspen Wildlife Controls experienced technicians understand the crafty ways of mischievous squirrels – their powerful teeth are capable of gnawing through even aluminum and shingle roofs! These critters can squeeze into surprisingly tiny places, so it takes a specialist to find every entry point. A technician will quickly block off all access points while humanely removing any already stowed away in your home; this is often going to be more cost-effective than relying on DIY solutions.

    Clear And Clean

    At Aspen Wildlife Control, we specialize in humane and reliable strategies to help you reclaim your home from pesky wildlife. If squirrels have taken up residence in the attic or elsewhere, they can wreak havoc on electric cables as well as spread ticks and fleas throughout the house – endangering both pets and people alike! Our experienced team of technicians will remove any built-up nests quickly so you can enjoy a safe living environment once more. We’ll also provide sound advice for how best to cleanse contaminants that might pose health risks after removal has been completed; it’s all part of our comprehensive service.

    Some Facts On Squirrels

    Squirrels are often thought of as cute and cuddly rodents, but they can be linked to serious havoc. These furry critters cause destruction by continuously scouring for food supplies, giving birth twice a year with an average litter size spanning from 5-6 babies – resulting in detrimental impacts on the homes or buildings which occupy their space.

    • Busy squirrels can present a danger to our homes, schools and businesses. With incisors that never stop growing, they must constantly gnaw away – causing damage while multiplying the problem with each litter of babies born every year! Buildings are at risk from destruction as well as potential fire hazards.
    • Those pesky squirrels can cause a whole lot more than just a ruckus in your attic – their extended absences often leave an open invitation for ticks and fleas to settle in, potentially endangering the health of you or your furry friends.
    • Fleet and fierce, mother squirrels will boldly take on any perceived threat to protect their young. Don’t be fooled by the timid façade of these furry little creatures – mama’s got claws!
    • Twice a year, mama squirrels bring forth their little ones to the world – usually in the spring and summer. On average, four to six babies enter this new place of life with each litter. But that’s not all! Mama likes her freedom so she chooses between five or six different homes for herself and her younglings spread throughout an area as they eagerly look forward to what lies ahead. Unfortunately though catching these adults won’t stop every squirrel from scurrying into our eaves’ corners; some will still remain ever present due to wild baby critters making mischief nearby all too often.

    J’avais un problème de rattons dans mon grenier. J’ai contacté Vincent de chez Aspen Wildlife Control. Des le lendemain matin, un représentant de la compagnie est venu et a pris des photos et vérifié les dégâts. Deux jours plus Vincent et deux autres employés sont venus. Ils ont sorti 3 bébés. Ils ont par la suite scellés mon sous toit au complet 100% à l’épreuve des ratons. La mère est par la suite venue récupérer ses bébés et reparti dans la nature. L’équipe a fait un excellent travail et très professionnel. Je les recommande très fortement.

    Nous avons récemment fait appel aux services d'Aspen WildLife Control pour un problème de raton laveur. Cette entreprise nous avait été hautement recommandée par des amis et elle n'a pas déçu. Nous avons apprécié la rapidité de réponse à notre demande de service et la fiabilité. Vincent, le propriétaire, est très compétent dans son domaine et a pris le temps de répondre à nos questions et de résoudre efficacement notre problème. Ils nous ont proposé une solution d'enlèvement respectueuse de l'environnement et écologiquement responsable et, plus important encore, ils ont réparé les trous près de l'avant-toit du toit pour éviter qu'ils ne reviennent. Merci pour votre excellent service.
