The Care and Feeding of Attic Squirrels – Just Kidding
When your friends and family start to wonder about the squirrel colony you’ve got thriving in your attic, or you’ve started giving each one a name based solely on the unique sound it makes running across your bedroom ceiling at 3 a.m., it may be time to consider calling Allison Pest Control. There are several options available – some of which are more menacing than others – and catch and release traps are typically best when you’re just looking to evict and relocate your furry friends.
Catch and release traps can be placed in small, hard-to-get to spaces where squirrels may decide to set up shop. This humane method of capturing and controlling your squirrel population can help rid your home of noisy guests who don’t pay rent. (Our traps are too small for unwanted mother-in-laws, we apologize.)
With our expert knowledge of all things furry, creepy, or crawly, we’ve found that some of the best bait buffets for squirrels include: nuts, seeds, corn, peanut butter, and molasses. While a squirrel city may sound harmless, these fluffy-tailed rodents can do some serious damage to your home, property, and attic as they carve out their way in the world. Humane trapping means relocation to a bigger and better outdoor space, where they can happily continue their squirrel-lives.
