Trapping is a common service provided by Trapper J for the humane removal of nuisance wildlife. Trapping services are normally the first step in solving a nuisance animal problem and proper repairs are normally required to keep wildlife out of the area they invaded. Being that every nuisance wildlife situation is different we offer different trapping plans and decide the most suitable for each situation.
One of the most common squirrel removal services we provide is for squirrels in the attic. During certain times of the year squirrels will enter homes and attics through existing holes or they will chew their way through weakened areas of roofs, vents and soffits to gain access to a warm safe attic. Once inside, squirrels can cause significant damage.
The most serious danger associated with having squirrels in your attic is a fire hazard. Squirrels are destructive by nature and like all rodents they chew on electrical wiring. By chewing on wires they strip the plastic coating, which exposes the bare copper wire and creates a very dangerous situation.
Some of the most common forms of squirrel damage associated with squirrel infestation are:
- Damaged and shredded insulation.
- Feces and urine deposits.
- Stains in ceilings from squirrel urine.
- Strong odor from urine-soaked insulation.
Trapper J Squirrel Removal Services also helps with the damage that also comes from chewing. Since the squirrel is a rodent, their front teeth always grow causing the squirrel to constantly chew to keep their teeth sharp and at a manageable level. In nature they chew tree bark, twigs and other natural hard items. In your attic, they chew wiring, support beams, roof braces and electrical fixtures. They can destroy your insulation by trampling it, pushing it down, which reduces your R-factor. Their urine and fecal matter will also collect in your insulation. They also cause damage in drywall by digging holes in the ceiling. This is usually the mother squirrel exercising her back leg muscles to prepare for birth. If you hear chewing or scratching in your attic don’t hesitate to call us. The Tree Squirrel should not be a welcome guest in your home.

How To Get Rid Of Squirrels in the Attic?
It’s crucial to find out where they are getting in and out (yes, they go out for water and food). Once you find the entry hole(s), you can mount a special repeater trap or a one-way exclusion door right on the hole. The repeater trap will trap all the squirrels in one shot, and the exclusion door will let them out, but not back in. It’s vital to make sure that any secondary holes are sealed shut, or else this won’t work.
Another option is to set several small cage traps on the roof (under eaves) and bolted to fascia boards, to trap them all. But cage traps aren’t nearly as efficient, and they often don’t fully succeed, and they can catch non-target squirrels. Once all squirrels are definitely out, and any trapped squirrels are relocated at least five miles away, you can seal up the primary entry hole. You will also want to clean up their feces and nesting material, and check for electrical wire damage. But wait! It’s not always so simple. Squirrels go into attics to give birth to a litter of young. You must deal with the baby squirrels in the correct manner. Below, and on the many pages of this site, I’ve written everything you need to know about getting rid of squirrels in the attic.
How did Squirrels get in my attic anyway?
Squirrels are excellent climbers. Most of the time, they’ve chosen an attic based on convenience or proximity to their normal home range. Squirrels are excellent chewers, so they often chew through wooden fascia boards or other areas to gain access. If there’s an easy and obvious way in, all the better. A house with wide-open holes and easy access stands a higher chance of seeing a squirrel enter at some point. Squirrels can fit through small areas, so most of the time they don’t even need to chew their way in – they just find a gap somewhere in the architecture.
Easy climbing access, such as trees adjacent to the house, also increases the probability of animal entry and habituation. But even without nearby trees, squirrels have no problem climbing almost anything. The most popular area of entry is any place where an eave meets up against a roof portion of the house, such as a dormer, or any architectural bend leading sections of the roof to meet. They also often get in where the roofline meets the fascia. Vents, both on the roof, the gables, and under eaves, are very common entry points, especially if they are not sealed properly.
