Mechanical Traps

Custom made traps are a good, humane squirrel repellent. They are a non-toxic way of encasing and ridding squirrels from attics or outside areas such as gardens or trees. The live traps used as squirrel repellents can be hung from trees or placed in areas where squirrels inhabit. Place peanut butter or bread inside the trap to lure the squirrel into the trap. Once the squirrel enters the trap, it will close encasing the squirrel without harming it. The animal can then be transported to a different area away from your home.

Organic Squirrel Repellents

Organic methods of squirrel repellent are the use of hot red peppers, chili peppers, or cayenne spice. Other spices such as black pepper or lemon juice can be spread in areas to deter squirrels. Placing these spicy ingredients on bird feeders or places where squirrels frequent will keep them away. The hot spices when ingested by squirrels will keep them from returning.

Squirrel repellents can be an effective way to rid squirrels from your garden, home, or tree areas. Make sure to keep any methods of elimination safe to the wildlife and environment surrounding the location. Most solutions for squirrel repellents are safe for children and pets especially designed traps. The important thing to remember when trying to get rid of squirrels is to remain patient.

With patience, your efforts will finally win over these pesky creatures.

Skunks Are Digging Holes in Yard

  • Live Trapping Raccoons

  • Signs of Bats

Racoons are very intelligent, bold and curious omnivorous mammals, with a clever ability to open closed containers and doors. They're night crawlers, and known for being cunning and destructive.

They normally destroy cornfields, pull off siding and tear openings to get into houses, hence the need to get rid of them.

Here are some tips to help you do just that:

First, deny them food and openings into your house. Restrict their access to birdfeeders, garbage cans, and entrances such as chimneys, which will eventually make the raccoon move to another area.

But, in case a raccoon has already taken up full-time residency in your house, maybe in your chimney, use a method called "exclusion" to get rid of it. This involves waiting until nightfall when raccoons are most active. When the racoon leaves to find food place a wire screen cover on the opening so the raccoon will have no way to get back in. And in case your garden is invaded, use fence wired with an electric to give them a mild shock every time they attempt to climb over the fence.

Send them packing with ammonia. Raccoons are naturally clean animals; they 'wash' their food before eating and continually keep their nests clean. They also don't like strong smells. Place a few Ammonia soaked rags near their nest and they should naturally go away.

Finally, once any of the above methods work for you, and you're sure the raccoons are out, promptly seal off all access to your home, while you repair every hole and opening with heavy wire cloth, steel flashing or solid wood.
