Grey squirrels can nest in your wall cavities, between false walls and in the loft. These squirrels may use roof insulation for nesting materials and may chew boxes and other items stored in the roof space. In some instances they have been known to chew electric cables and roof joists causing a potentially hazardous condition, at the same time causing the problem of noise.
The grey squirrel is a non indigenous species and is not protected. In fact, it is illegal to ’live trap’ a grey squirrel and release it back into the wild.
At Essex Pest Control Ltd, we only use ’killing traps’ as a control method. This by far the most humane method of control and unlike with the use of poison the body is always recovered.
