Squirrel Removal in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Most of the time, you’ll find squirrels making dens in tree cavities or using leaves to make a leaf den. However, the insulation in an attic space is a suitable alternative for squirrels – making them a common pest in homes.

Removing Squirrels

Squirrels make their way into your crawl space or attic through opens voids. Usually, they’re looking for a place to store food or gain shelter. If they make their way to your chimney, they may accidentally fall through. Squirrels aren’t known to be aggressive, although they may get vocal or bite if cornered.

Unfortunately, squirrels are fast little creatures making them difficult to catch without trapping. Once we determine the squirrel’s entry point, we use a point of entry trapping process that involves one-way trapping methods. This type of trap is the most common, effective, and humane method of evicting unwelcome squirrels from your home.
