Do You Have a Squirrel Control Problem?
Squirrels in the New Jersey area are known to sometimes enter homes and buildings to nest and protect themselves from predators and the elements (especially during the colder months). Female squirrels are known to invade attics and use them as den sites to protect the six to 10 offspring they have each year. To keep them from entering your home, it is best to take away their food source by keeping your yard free and clear of acorns, nuts, and seeds. Unfortunately, if they are already dug in to your home or invaded your yard, you may need to call an experienced squirrel removal company to prevent squirrel hazards.
If squirrels are not immediately removed when they are identified, the squirrel population in and around your home or building will continue to multiply and can spread squirrel diseases to humans. Therefore, they need to be removed from the area as soon as possible to keep the population in your area under control.
