How to Get Rid of Squirrels
If not taken care of quickly, the damage caused by many of these animals can cost hundreds of dollars. People have also become more aware of health issues associated with bats, skunks, raccoons, birds, etc.
Our website serves to provide you with detailed information on these animals including their behavior, habitats, physical descriptions, reproduction information, lifespans, habits and more. We include pictures of the mature species, babies, sounds and even footprints so that you might identify with the pesky animal invading your space.

Squirrels are cute, whimsical and fun to watch. However, squirrels can also be a pain in the butt. They can root up your bulbs, clean out your bird seed and get in your house.
But how can they be dangerous?
It's all because of two things: first, they get into your house, and two, they like to chew.
Squirrels move into your attic for a variety of reasons. Maybe it is near their food (since they like to live near their food) or maybe they need to make a nest to live (or have a family) or maybe it is because they found an opening into your attic - a place which is warm, dry and protected.
Well, it doesn't really matter why they are there. It's just that they are there.
This is a problem because squirrels love to chew. In fact it is a necessity for them to chew constantly and to chew anything. If they didn't, their teeth would grow too big for their mouths. So their natural bent is to chew and chew and chew.
All this means is that you need to get rid of the squirrels (if they are there already) or prevent them from coming in (if they are not there yet.). The best way to start is to make sure all openings in your attic are properly closed. This will go a long way to keeping them out.
To learn more about getting rid of squirrels (or at least getting them under control), you need The Definitive Guide to Controlling Squirrels. This $5 guide will give you all the basics and can be found at http://www.ControllingSquirrels.com

Squirrels may be a major thorn in your side. They spend enormous amounts of time eating and digging in your garden (or bird feeder) - but what can you do?
You can take major steps and set out poison, but that has its drawbacks.
You can try and trap them, but that has its drawbacks too.
Or, you can try and repel them with simple things found around your house.
People have found all types of things that can be used for repelling squirrels, but as with all things - some work for some people and not for others.
If one home remedy does not work, try another. As said earlier, some people have more success with some than others.
As a last resort, there are commercial repellents which you can buy at your local hardware store. These obviously will cost more but are a stronger repellent and may have a better effect.
