Gray Squirrel

Gray squirrels are very common and found almost everywhere there are trees in the Delaware valley. Most active in the mornings and evenings, these agile animals are fun to watch but almost impossible to keep out of urban bird feeders. Not all gray squirrels are gray. Despite their name, these squirrels can actually be gray, brown, black or white. Gray squirrels are excellent climbers and build nests in barbecue grills, cars, garages and trees. Gray squirrels can also become a nuisance when they chew through fascia boards or the roof of your home, gaining access into your soffit and attic. Squirrels are very social animals, if you think you have ONE squirrel in your attic, think again. You may have four, five or more because squirrels stay as family unit.

Southern Flying Squirrel

Flying squirrels have large, loose skin flaps between the front and rear legs making their bodies resemble a kite-like shape when in flight. Despite their name, flying squirrels are not capable of flight. These animals glide between trees and rooftops looking for places to live and sources of food. Flying squirrels have large eyes with a black lining around them making them appear to pop out. Flying squirrels mate between February and March but are active all year around.

Humane Squirrel Removal

Our technicians are state-licensed and specially trained in humane squirrel trapping, removal and exclusion services. We use special tools and techniques for quick and effective squirrel trapping. The first humane trap we use is a spring-loaded multi-catch trap which covers the entrance the squirrels are using to access the structure. This trap allows multiple squirrels to push on the door, enter the trap with the door closing behind them. We will also use a passive trap (also known as a Have-a-Heart trap) near the opening on the roof. The passive trap will have bait inside to entice the squirrel. Once inside, the door will close behind them. By using these trapping methods, we will be able to capture squirrels inside the structure, as well as squirrels entering the structure. After the traps are set up, we will begin exclusion work which includes inspecting the structure for weak openings and sealing them by closing gaps or installing the appropriate screens.

Squirrel Exclusion & Squirrel Proofing

Squirrel exclusion is a safe, effective and permanent solution which humanely prevents squirrels from entering a home or building. Squirrels use existing openings around the home to make their nests and they will continue to enter a structure if they smell another squirrel's presence through weak openings. Only a combined service of trapping and exclusion will eliminate future infestations. We guarantee our services if we use trapping and exclusion together.

Wildlife Waste Is Toxic

If you have had animals in your attic, you could be harboring a significant health hazard. According to the Center for Disease Control, humans can contract diseases from wildlife when exposed to urine, droppings, saliva or nesting material. An animal presence in the attic means urine, feces and animal carcasses right above you and your family's heads.

We can help! We will remove your contaminated attic insulation, disinfect, repair access holes and install a fresh, clean blanket of TAP pest control insulation. The Boric acid content of TAP insulation acts as a permanent pest control solution, disinfectant and odor eliminator where it is placed. Typical energy savings with TAP insulation range from 20%-38%.

Squirrel Removal Reviews

5 star review

Thank you for your expert workmanship and patience. An extra THANK YOU for squeezing us into the schedule on Monday Dec. 21st the day before we were leaving for our extended trip. That was a HUGE worry off our plate. Our only regret is that we did not contact you two months earlier instead of relying on a company that, obviously, had little experience with squirrel removal. Thank you again. We will certainly reference you in the future if anyone else has pest problems.

Dane helped with a squirrel problem in my chimney. He checked the problem, explained the solution, spelled out the plan and helped me to feel better about my concerns. Dane was very polite and business like in his manner. I would strongly recommend Dane to serve any customer and to provide a possible solution to a pest/wildlife problem.

5 star review

I hired Patriot Pest Solutions to help me with a horrible noise coming from my attic. Chad was the person who came out, right away to help me. When he arrived I was a nervous wreck and terrified. He immediately put me at ease with his confidence that he would solve and exterminate the problem. Turns out it a lot of flying squirrels, meaning Chad would be making several trips to my house to eliminate the problem. Each and EVERY time, he was friendly, persistent, and just awesome at his job. He made me feel safe immediately. He was beyond thorough in resolving my problem. He went out of his way to put my kids at ease and convince them we were in good hands, in no harm in any way, and he would do his job until the attic was free and clear! Exactly what he did! I would hire Patriot Pest Solutions again and ask for Chad in a heartbeat!
