Squirrel Trapping

Squirrel in houseThere are three types of tree squirrel in the great state of Texas, namely the gray squirrel, fox squirrel and flying squirrel. Tree squirrels are interesting rodents that have a tendency to be pests in Kingwood Texas and other urban environments. Mature female squirrels give birth to a litter of three or four baby squirrels twice a year. As it turns out, Hurricane Harvey showed up at just the wrong time, so Local Houston area squirrel populations may have been negatively impacted. Many people reported that they found squirrel nests and baby squirrels sprawled across the landscape after the hurricane. Like all good Texans, Houston area squirrels are destined to recover and prosper.

Squirrels can be pests, especially if they take up residence in your Kingwood TX home or business. The best way to avoid squirrel related damage is to squirrel proof your building to keep the squirrels out of your attic, HVAC system, basement or storage facility. Squirrels and other wild animals can cause extensive damage to property and endanger the health of your family or employees. Not only do squirrels contaminate insulation and other building materials with mold producing urine and feces, they sharpen their teeth by chewing on electrical wires and wood framing. The Critter Team specializes in squirrel removal, squirrel control and squirrel trapping. They can also professionally seal your home or business to keep squirrels and other nuisance wild animals outside where they belong.

General facts about Squirrels

Gray squirrels (Sciurus caronlinensis) live in trees and are medium sized. They may be dark colored and have red fur on their feet, hips, and head with white undersides. They breed in December through February and from May through June and have about two to three babies. Squirrels will migrate until they find a good place to set up housekeeping. If they can’t find a suitable tree, they will make their home in your home.

Signs of a squirrel nest or setting up housekeeping in your buildings include:

Scratching sounds.
• Problems with electrical wiring in your home.
• Holes and signs of chewing.
• Seeing electrical wiring that has been damaged.
• Seeing that your insulation has been trampled or otherwise damaged.

Any hole in the buildings on your property can provide access for squirrels looking for a nice warm home to build their squirrel nest.

You may see signs of wire chewing when you inspect your home or business property. We can safely remove the squirrels and humanely relocate them to a more appropriate home.

Once the squirrel removal is complete, our Kingwood TX Company will find the squirrel’s entry ways and prevent any further squirrels from entering your home in the future. We will clean up feces, urine and other signs of squirrel nest debris.
