Squirrel Pest Control

Fast Call Back

Something went wrong. Please try again later

When squirrels call your loft or attic home, it can be irritating. They make massive amounts of noise when making nests, and their gnawing behaviour is known to cause serious fire hazards. Squirrels are known to cause damage and carry the following risks:

  • Spread diseases such as tularemia, salmonellosis, typhus, and ringworm
  • Have a constant need to gnaw their teeth on anything and everything, including electrical cables
  • Cause damage to loft insulation and timber
  • Keep you up at night with their nesting and gnawing sounds

Vermicure provides squirrel pest control services throughout Wakefield, Leeds and surrounding areas such as Pontefract and Castleford. Our removal treatments are carefully crafted to eliminate squirrels in your home. Furthermore, we can identify ingress points used by squirrels and offer guidance around proofing against future infestations.

Don’t hesitate to act if you hear noises in your attic; contact Vermicure at 07951 157254 or request a callback.

Why should you control a squirrel infestation

If squirrels have infested your home, it is no joke. They cause extensive amounts of damage in lofts and have resulted in many fires across the areas of Wakefield and Leeds. The damage is caused due to their constantly growing teeth which need to be ground down. This need means they’ll chew through timber, electrical cables or anything else that’ll do the job. While this will grind down their teeth, it will also damage your property, so if squirrels enter your home, you need expert squirrel control.

Above are a few photos from recent squirrel removals in Wakefield and Leeds. The damage is apparent, and leaving a squirrel infestation for extended periods puts you and your family at risk.

How our squirrel pest control service works



We’ll first visit your property to understand how squirrels access your attic or loft. Once identified, it allows us to put together a strategy that will be 100% effective.



Once our removal strategy is identified, we’ll begin to place a range of professional-grade traps around squirrel runs. After that, we may use rodenticides, but this is usually the last option.



Using specialist 24/7 wildlife cameras, we can monitor the strategy and understand its effectiveness. If alterations need to be made, we can do this on our inclusive second and third visits.



Three visits is usually all we need to remove your squirrel infestation. However, if more is required, we will communicate this with you. We can also offer guidance and advice on proofing to prevent another infestation in the future.

Spot signs of a squirrel infestation

A squirrel infestation can often be confused for rats and mice. However, there are some distinct signs to look out for with regard to squirrels:

  1. The easiest way to identify a squirrel infestation is to spot them. Squirrels will often use your fence line if they are climbing up into your attic. Noticing squirrels using regular routes is a sure sign that you have an infestation.
  2. If you have a garden, you’ll see squirrels feeding from your bird feeders, eating fruit, nuts, seeds or flower buds. If you’re precious about your garden, you’ll notice the damage they are causing by digging up bulbs.
  3. You’ll hear scratching and rustling sounds from your loft or cavity walls. The noise is caused by building nests and gnawing their front teeth down.
  4. Trees in your garden may have bark stripped from them. Squirrels especially love maples, ash and beech trees.
  5. Pop your head in your attic or loft; you’ll notice droppings and a urine smell. You may require a survey from our technicians to identify if this is rats, mice or squirrels, but either way, you’ll know you have an infestation.

Squirrels are no joke, so if you spot any of the above signs, you should call our team on 07951 157254 to discuss your problem and arrange your first squirrel control visit.
