  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?

  • We Can Solve It!
Many of New York'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 New York'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 Erie 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 Hamburg animal control for wildlife issues.

Hamburg Wildlife Removal Tip: What is a squirrel's natural diet and how does it get its food?

What do squirrels eat?

The short answer to this question is "everything." Squirrels are truly omnivorous animals. These animals aren't picky when it comes to food.

Squirrel's natural diet includes fruits, vegetables, flowers, nuts, seeds, fungi, plants, and even insects. However, squirrels don't have boundaries when it comes to food. These animals love to experiment with eating food and it is no wonder seeing a squirrel eating food remains in parks such as burgers, chocolate, sandwiches, and other foods.


Squirrels enjoy eating fruits. Because of that, the favorite trees these animals love climbing up are fruit trees. These animals will happily munch fruits for hours and hours. Some squirrels even hoard fruits and eat them later.

These small rodents especially love eating apples, pears, peaches, nectarines, figs, and plums. Squirrels also like eating berries, such as strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. So, the next time you want to trap a squirrel, you can use berries as bait.


Squirrels are also fond of vegetables. These animals enjoy eating vegetables, especially leafy green. So, it is no wonder why many gardeners suspect every year that their devastated vegetable crops were destroyed by these small rodents.

Besides they love eating green veggies, squirrels also love eating other vegetables, such as tomatoes, corn, radishes, beans, squash, eggplant, carrots, and okra.


Do you know what food squirrels love eating the most? Well, the answer is obvious - nuts. Squirrels are literally nuts about nuts. Besides these cute animals love eating nuts, they also love hiding nuts and saving them for later.

However, most squirrels forget where did they hide their nuts and that is why millions of new trees grow each year. Squirrels opt for eating nuts because they are a rich source of fats and proteins.

What Foods do Squirrels Avoid?

If you have a pet squirrel and want to know what foods squirrels avoid in the wild, we will explain that to you. Wildlife experts claim that wild squirrels avoid eating avocadoes, dried fruits, cashews, onions, pine nuts, prunes, sunflower seeds, and plums.

So, if you have a pet squirrel, avoid giving it those foods. Also, don't give a pet squirrel any type of processed human food, such as pasta and bread.

How does a Squirrel Find its Food?

A squirrel finds its food thanks to their awesome visual field and its great sense of smell. A squirrel's sense of smell helps it find seeds and other food. The sense of smell of a squirrel is so powerful that this animal can even find buried nuts and seeds.
