We are hearing sounds in the loft do you think its rats or squirrels?
As a general rule squirrel's will be more active during daylight hours and rats more active at night; this is a general guide as we often find from customers who have a squirrel infestation, that they'll hear noises at night. In somewhere like a loft, squirrels will latrine in one or two parts so they're a bit like us in that, if they need to go to the toilet at night then they get out of bed to do it.
As squirrels are active during daylight you'll hear more activity during the day and they are quite brazen, popping out of holes that they've gnawed to check on the surroundings and generally run about quite happily if you're there or not.
If we have squirrels in the loft what damage can they cause?
For a start squirrels build a nest called a drey and they do this by scraping all the insulation out of the loft and into the box formed by the soffet and fascia boards. This isn't enough as they will start destroying fabrics and soft items and if its a pregnant female then she may make a couple of dreys before deciding which one's the best.
Squirrels are a destructive pest in Maidenhead and classified as vermin, read our blog on just how bad these invasive animals are to the Uk's flora and fauna.
Maidenhead Pest Control for professional squirrel eradication without the use of poison
As with rat infestations we do not like the use of rodenticide within properties; squirrels are larger than rats and stock up on fat to get through the winter months. Although legal to use rodenticide on squirrels we think that this is unprofessional as squirrels will weaken and die within the property more often than rats.
Dead vermin like rats and squirrels will attract carrion flies who lay their egg's on the body, these develop into maggots which in turn can infest the house eventually producing more flies - as if you didn't have enough to deal with?
We trap squirrels removing the bodies and then seal the access point leaving you pest free. Squirrels are now covered by Law and cannot be released back into the wild under any circimstances. Find out more about their status with this link:
