Squirrel Removal Windcrest

Absolutely nothing is worse for your insulation than a family of squirrels setting up shop. Our AAAC Wildlife Removal professionals of Windcrest are right here to help you eliminate your squirrel issue, clean up the mess, and fix the damage. Don't delay, damaged wires can catch fire!

Windcrest squirrels living inside your yard and in your attics can cause property damage that will need repair.

Squirrels are some of the most annoying rodents to have in your house. They can get into all kinds of places, including your attic, and they cause a lot of damage while they’re there. They are not only annoying but can also cause structural damage and insulation degradation. Squirrels can also be a fire hazard because they love to chew on electrical wires. You are not the only one with a squirrel problem. There are many squirrels in the United States, and they cause all sorts of trouble every day.

Windcrest is no exception to this. Because they can live year-round without freezing cold, squirrels love Windcrest Texas. The mild winters in Texas allow squirrels to stay active all throughout the winter months, which means homeowners are more likely to see them around their homes looking for food or shelter. However, one rodent infestation that you may not want to be dealing with is a squirrel infestation on your property since these rodents will cause a lot of damage while they’re there if they have nowhere else to go. There are likely to be some unwelcome guests living in your walls if you find something chewing on your attic or home.

Squirrels in the attic

Squirrels are one of the most annoying creatures to have inside your home. Squirrels are persistent in their search for a spot in your attic. They will chew through any weak points on your roof or walls and gain access inside.

Attics are like squirrels’ playground. They can leap from one rafter or another and find their way into any ventilation system or hole they have made in your attic.

As soon as you notice these critters in the attic, do not wait for them to cause bigger problems. Our wildlife removal experts are available to help you immediately.

Squirrel Removal in Windcrest, Texas

Calling a professional wildlife removal company like us is the best way to remove these critters from your house. Our experts at AAAC Wildlife Removal understand that these critters can be a big problem and we will provide you with the best solution to resolve your squirrel issue.

We employ humane, up-to-date methods that do not cause harm to the squirrel. Our process involves trapping and exclusion of the nuisance animal as well as making sure that they don’t come back.

Professional Wildlife Trappers

Each one of our expert trappers is fully licensed and certified to handle nuisance wildlife. Our technicians are well trained in all aspects of animal removal and have years of experience with removing wildlife such as squirrels, raccoons, opossum, skunks, bats, snakes, etc.

Trapping is not something that homeowners can effectively do on their own, It involves a lot of work and knowledge about the behavior and activity patterns of different types of squirrels. We use state-of-the-art equipment for trapping and will make sure that the critters are removed safely and humanely.

Animal removal usually is a three-part process – here’s how we do it:

  1. Setting up traps to catch the animal
  2. Seal all entry holes to prevent re-entry
  3. Inspection and repair of wildlife damage both inside and outside your home

Setting traps to catch a squirrel

We use either one-door or two-door traps and set them in areas where we see squirrel activity. We bait the trap with food that the critters find irresistible. The trap is then triggered using a trip plate which releases a door that will seal the animal inside the cage.

Seal all entry holes

After trapping and removing all squirrels in your attic, we close up any openings larger than 1/2 inch across to prevent more wildlife from getting into your home.

Inspection and Repair of Wildlife Damage

Finally, we perform a complete clean-up and decontamination of your attic to remove any trace of the nuisance animals. We then install insulation and reinstall vents as necessary before proceeding to a complete restoration of your attic.

Should I Get a Squirrel Exterminator?

Although squirrels can be quite a pest, poisoning them is a big no-no. Poison should only be used to control termite and ant colonies. It is not recommended for wildlife. You can have dead squirrels in your walls if you use poison as you use them for ants and termites. This will cause an awful smell that will permeate your entire home.

Before they die, poisoned squirrels will track dangerous chemicals around your home. This can create a hazardous situation for you and the rest of your family. Not to mention that poisoned squirrels will die in inaccessible places, like inside walls or under flooring which can be quite difficult to remove without proper equipment or training.

Professional Squirrel removal by a company that is experienced in safely getting rid of nuisance critters is the best option. After we remove the animal, we offer an attic cleaning and restoration service so you don’t have to worry about the mess in your attic. This includes decontamination and cleaning as well as insulation replacement, and wall repairs if necessary.

Our Squirrel Trapping Process

  • We first determine if trapping is necessary or if exclusion-based methods will be more effective.
  • We choose from a dozen of so traps, depending on the size of animal we’re trying to trap.
  • Place traps in places that we know the animals like to use.
  • Bait the traps with food that squirrels find irresistible.
  • Remove and relocate trapped animal.

Trapping or Exclusion

Sometimes traps may not be necessary when removing squirrels. Sometimes, exclusion-based methods are sufficient. Exclusion means using one-way doors that allow the squirrels to leave but prevent them from getting back inside after they’ve left the property.

Choosing the right trap

When we set out to catch squirrels, we make sure that the trap that we pick is just right. There are many traps available for squirrel removal. Our team of experts will pick the best one for the job.

Place Traps in Key Areas

Choosing where to place the trap is one of the most important part of the process. We will choose areas we believe the critters are active and place our traps there.

Bait with Food They Like

What food can you use to catch squirrels? It matters! Different baits work better for different species of wildlife, so professionals will choose the best bait for that specific type of wildlife.

Remove the Animal

After we capture the squirrels, It is often pretty straightforward to remove them from your property. We first ensure that they are out of your home or attic before sealing all other entry points shut. This will prevent other critters from getting inside as well.

Attic Clean Up and Decontamination

Squirrels will leave a terrible mess in your attic after living there for an extended period of time. You will need to deal with a lot of feces, urine, and hair. They will attract other pests like rats and cockroaches which can spread disease and illness throughout your home. To get rid of all traces of the pests, we will do a thorough attic cleaning and decontamination.

Wildlife Damage Repair

Squirrels will do major damage to your soffits, eaves, vents, and roofs when they are living inside your attic. They have sharp teeth that they use to widen openings and they will pull out insulation to make comfortable nests.

The damage outside can also be substantial, especially if the animals are living in your walls. The unsightly chewed-up siding or shingles will be noticed by your neighbors.

When these issues arise, it’s best to let a professional deal with the problem so that your home is restored back to its original condition. Our team are masters at carpentry and can make all of these repairs in a timely and effective manner.

If these critters have caused serious damage to your home or business, call us today for Wildlife Damage Repair!

Why hire a professional?

It may seem like it’s easy to get rid of squirrels on your own, but the process is more complex than you might think and there are some serious risks involved with doing this! Squirrels can carry parasites such as mites, bugs, and several diseases like Lyme disease, rabies, and leptospirosis.

These diseases can be deadly if not treated right away. Furthermore, trying to do any kind of wildlife removal yourself is illegal in Texas as rabies is a concern anytime you’re dealing with these wild animals.
