  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Maryland's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Maryland's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Prince George's county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Greenbelt animal control for wildlife issues.

Greenbelt Wildlife Removal Tip: How to Get Rid of Squirrels in The Attic?

Facts on Squirrels

Squirrels are relatively small mammals found living in the forestry or areas with lots of trees and sometimes even in the deserts. They have slim bodies with thick and bushy tails and soft and silky fur. They feed on seeds, fruits and nuts. But if climates do not permit them in finding such dietary, squirrels sometimes also feed on insects and small bugs. They can see very clearly with their large eyes and their teeth are very sharp for gnawing and grinding.

1. Squirrels’ Entry Holes

There are around seven entry points for squirrels to enter your houses:

• Roof Vents
• Roof Edges
• Intersection on Roof
• Gable Vents
• Wall Vents
• Plumbing Mats
• Chimneys

2. How to Prevent Squirrels from Entering Your House?

There are several methods in preventing squirrels from entering your house and these methods may seem simple to be installed but slightly tedious.

• Method 1 – Segregation

o Step 1: Seal off your attic by patching up holes and spaces small enough for a squirrel to enter your house.
o Step 2: Block your chimneys and vents with a cap or wire mesh fencing.
o Step 3: Seal up all openings found all around the house.
o Step 4: Create an exit for existing squirrels that are stuck in your house, using a wire mesh funnel.
o Step 5: Attach this funnel to the last open hole in your house, so it can lead the squirrels to outside of your house.
o Step 6: Lure the current squirrels out by placing nuts or fruit slices outside the funnel entry in your house.

• Method 2 – Traps and Cages

o Step 1: Purchase and set the right kind of trap cage to capture squirrels.
o Step 2: Set the cage at a hidden and dark area in the attic.
o Step 3: Place nuts or fruit slices on the trap trigger as bait to entice these squirrels into the trap cages.
o Step 4: Once the trap cage is successfully triggered in trapping the squirrels, you may move them to a new place of at least 16 kilometers or 10 miles away from your house.
o Step 5: Before relocation, please ensure that there are no baby squirrels hidden in your house, especially the attic. If there are baby squirrels, then make sure these baby squirrels are to be moved together with the mummy squirrel.
o For Precaution purposes, please make sure that you protect your hands with thick gloves when you release them from a trap.

• Method 3 – Squirrel Repellents

o Step 1: Scare the squirrels off with sound from radio or ultrasound devices.
o Step 2: Make the attic a brighter environment with flash lights installed.
o Step 3: Purchase a natural squirrel repellent, spraying on the nesting areas in your attic.
o Step 4: Disinfect your attic with ammonia-soaked or vinegar-soaked rags.
o Step 5: Scatter mothballs in all the entrances and around your attic.
