SQUIRREL wildlife inspections


SQUIRREL REMOVAL FROM exterior structures






One of the most popular animals to gain access to residential homes and properties are squirrels. Though they usually live in trees, squirrels will often move into the attics and soffits of homes and buildings.

It’s common that homeowners mistake squirrels for birds or simply put up with them in the hopes that they’ll eventually leave – but they don’t (why would they?). Squirrels that stay in a den site for extended periods of time can cause significant damage. This may include damage to insulation, urination, defecation, and chewing on wires or other structures in the area.

Squirrels are not only incredibly messy, but their small size lets them access areas behind your walls that other animals usually can’t get to. Not only do they let themselves in, but their entry points can also act as an invitation for other wildlife to come inside (Mice, Rats, Bats and Raccoons).

How does our squirrel removal service work?


We start all jobs with a detailed inspection to understand your unique situation. We will inspect the roof, and attic for signs of squirrel damage, feces or babies.


Once we've identified where the squirrels are getting in we install a one way door that allows the squirrels a way to evict themselves, while also preventing them from re-entering the area.


The key to successful long-term protection from squirrels is to proof any potential weak points on the home or structure. Any preventative work would be installed at the same time to eliminate further damage during the removal process.


2-3 weeks following your service, we will come back to the property to remove the one way door, and repair and reinforce the entry points.

How we'll evict the squirrels:

Wondering how you get rid of squirrels? Wildlife Exclusion methods are our preferred way to control wildlife. It is the most humane, permanent, and effective method of keeping squirrels out of a home compared to trapping and relocating. We don’t think that these methods effectively address wildlife issues because they are only temporary solutions. Not only does exclusion last longer than other methods, but the homeowner doesn’t need to constantly monitor for animals or pests.

The most humane way to safely remove a squirrel from a residence is by using the one way door method. This door is as resistant as it comes – it is constructed out of a heavy gauge steel mesh, and squirrels cannot chew through this material. Following the inspection, and after locating the entry point, we install this door over the access area. This allows the squirrels to exit, and then shuts behind it preventing them from getting back inside. 2-3 weeks following your service, our team comes back to the property to remove the one way door, and repair and reinforce the entry point. 

How we'll keep them out:

Squirrels, and other rodents have teeth that never stop growing. That’s the reason they’re always gnawing on things–to keep their teeth sharp and worn down. When you add their size to the equation, as well as the fact that our homes provide desirable shelter for them, it’s easy for a squirrel to access your attic. If a home is not properly sealed, they will continually find new ways to get inside and you’ll be dealing with squirrels on your roof.

During your service we install custom fit reinforcements made of industrial strength steel that squirrels cannot tamper with or destroy – This is what prevents them from breaking back in. All work done by us comes with a two-year warranty, and if you go for our full service recommendation, you’re guaranteed five years of protection! Learn More About our Preventative Sealing Services…

What if there are babies?

Most baby squirrels are born in either February or March, and then again in July or August. A litter of baby squirrels can have up to eight, but the average is usually five or six. If you find yourself overrun by squirrels in the roof, be prepared for increased activity and potential damage around your home. The mother feeds them every two to four hours for several weeks until they’re 7-8 weeks old, at which point they begin to follow their mother around the den site. If you live with a squirrel den in your attic, this is when you might start hearing noise if you haven’t already noticed the cries earlier on. By using the proper exclusion techniques, we can humanely keep mothers with their babies while providing our customers with a safe and permanent solution that doesn’t involve traps or poison.

Following the attic inspection, we will determine where the kits are located, and proceed to humanely remove them from the area. During the service the kits are removed from the den site, placed inside of a warming box that is then secured near the entry point. The goal of this is not to separate mother from her babies, but rather to keep the babies close to where the mother left them. At that point the mother squirrel will come and remove each kit 1-by-1 and relocate them to another den site in the area. We will then continue to seal up any weak spots on the home to ensure full prevention of future intruders!

So, let’s talk about why you might need professional squirrel removal services. First of all, it’s always a good idea to call in the experts when you’re dealing with squirrels. They have the right tools and experience to safely and humanely remove the squirrels from your property without anyone getting hurt.

If you try to remove squirrels on your own, it can be really dangerous for you and the squirrels. That’s why it’s important to call in the professionals. They’ll get the job done quickly, effectively, and without harming any squirrels.

Not only that, but professional squirrel removal services can also help prevent future squirrel infestations. They’ll identify what’s causing the squirrels to come to your property, and then take steps to keep them from coming back. This might involve sealing up entry points or making changes to the environment to make it less attractive to squirrels.

We will use our 10 years of expertise and specialized equipment to take care of the problem quickly and without causing any harm to the squirrels.

When you want to get rid of squirrels, the best way to do it is by using exclusion techniques which in our opinion is the most humane, permanent, and effective way to control wildlife. We don’t like trapping and relocating squirrels because it’s not a long-term solution and they could just come back.

One way to safely remove squirrels from your home is by using a one-way door that only lets them leave and not come back. This door is made of strong steel that squirrels can’t chew through. First, we look for the squirrels’ entry point into your home, and then we install this special door over it. This lets the squirrels leave your home, but keeps them from getting back in. After a few weeks, we come back to remove the door and fix the entry point so the squirrels can’t get in again.

Absolutely! Squirrels are really good at climbing. They have sharp claws that can grip onto surfaces, and they’re super agile, which means they can easily jump from one surface to another. So, if you have squirrels in your backyard or around your home, it’s important to know that they can easily climb up walls, trees, or any other vertical surface to get where they want to go.

Now, if you’re dealing with squirrels around your home or business, it’s important to take steps to keep them from getting inside. This can include things like cutting back tree branches that are close to your building, sealing up any holes or gaps in your walls or roof, and getting rid of things that might attract squirrels, like bird feeders or open trash cans.

But, If you already have squirrels inside your home or business, the best thing to do is call in a professional squirrel removal services. Our team can safely and humanely remove the squirrels and make sure they don’t come back. We’ll also take steps to figure out how the squirrels got in, and help you take steps to keep them from coming back in the future. So, if you have a squirrel problem, don’t worry, just give us a call and we’ll take care of everything!

Squirrels are agile and persistent creatures, so it can be tough to remove them on your own with DIY solutions or home made repellents. That’s why it’s usually best to call in the professionals for squirrel removal services.

Yes, squirrels can scratch through drywall. Squirrels have sharp claws and are skilled climbers, which means they can climb walls and access areas such as attics and crawl spaces in homes and buildings. Once inside, they may scratch and gnaw at walls, including drywall, in order to create entry or exit points or to build nests.

It is important to have squirrels removed by a professional wildlife removal service to avoid damage to your property and potential risks to your health and safety. Professional squirrel removal services can identify and seal entry points, remove the squirrels in a humane and safe manner, and help prevent future infestations.

Squirrels are notorious for finding their way into homes and buildings through small openings, and once they are inside, they can cause damage and create a lot of noise. They are particularly active in the early morning and late afternoon, but they can also be active at night if they are disturbed or searching for food.

If you think you might have a squirrel infestation, here are some signs to look out for.

First, listen for scratching or scurrying sounds in your walls, ceilings, or attic. Squirrels are active during the day, so you might hear them in the morning or afternoon.

Second, check for squirrel droppings, which are small, dark pellets and can usually be found near the areas where the squirrels are nesting.

Third, look for any holes or chew marks in your home or property, especially near the roofline or in the attic. Squirrels can gnaw through wood, siding, and even electrical wiring.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to call a professional squirrel removal service as soon as possible to prevent any further damage to your home or property.

Once squirrels have been removed from your property, it’s important to take steps to prevent them from returning. One of the most effective ways to do this is to seal up any entry points that squirrels might use to get into your home or property. These might include gaps around doors and windows, holes in your roof, or openings in your chimney. Learn more about our Preventative Sealing Services…

It’s also important to keep your property clean and free of debris, such as fallen tree branches, that could provide squirrels with a place to hide or build a nest. Additionally, consider using squirrel-proof bird feeders and removing any potential food sources, such as pet food or unsecured garbage cans.

By taking these preventative measures, you can help ensure that squirrels do not return to your property after they have been removed.

Squirrels can cause a lot of damage to the attic and other parts of your home. They often like to chew on things like wood, wires, insulation, and even pipes. This can create holes and other damage, which can allow water, insects, and other pests to get into your home. Squirrels can also create nests in your attic, which can cause even more damage. If left unchecked, squirrel damage can become quite extensive and expensive to repair. It’s important to address squirrel infestations as soon as possible to minimize the damage they can cause.

Squirrels can stay in your attic for several months or even years, especially if they find a warm, safe, and cozy place to live. Once they establish their nest, they will continue to come back to your attic until they are removed. It’s important to get rid of squirrels as soon as possible, because the longer they stay, the more damage they can do to your home and the harder it will be to remove them. If you think you have squirrels in your attic, it’s best to call a professional wildlife removal company like First Class Wildlife Removal to safely and effectively remove them.
