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.

Raccoons: Habits of Your Everyday Raccoon

  • Do Squirrels Carry Rabies?

Ever since I started rehabilitating orphaned and injured squirrels many years ago, I would occasionally read a reference to squirrels "purring." Among the numerous squirrels I've raised from infancy or toddler hood, I had never heard a "purr" from any of them. Chirps, barks and squeals, yes, but purrs, no!

I have a handicapped squirrel named Lucky who has been part of our family for almost two years. According to conventional Rehabilitation standards, I'm supposed to euthanize her because; " If you cannot return an animal to the wild, it should be euthanized!" Other so-called "experts" have said; "Squirrels only make good pets for the first six months of their lives, then they become too wild and unpredictable to safely keep as pets." While I agree that a healthy squirrel with no physical handicap should ultimately be allowed to choose to return to the wild, I contend that a squirrel has at least the "potential" to be a good and loving pet! But, I'm a maverick when it comes to agreeing with conventional wisdom!

The purr appears to be a willingness for social interaction. If I walk up to her cage and talk to her and say her name, she eventually will come to the side of the cage and check me out. Since she is a blind squirrel, when she realizes it's me, she starts quietly purring, or as I call it, "oinking," indicating that she knows who I am and she's willing to come out as soon as I open the cage. The conclusion I draw from this is that squirrels purr when they feel safe, contented and willing to interact with others! It makes me feel really good to think that our Lucky girl feels safe and contented and that she is able to verbalize that to us!

How Do You Find the Areas Where Bats Are Getting In?

If you have previously had a problem with raccoons and squirrels, then you know what a menace varmints can be. The same is also true for bats, especially knowing the fact that bats are carriers of the rabies virus. Remember, it is illegal to use poisons to kill bats, so it will be better if you opt for bat traps. However, research has shown that bats have a tendency to return to their roosting place even if they are 150 miles away. Hence, traps may not be a permanent solution to prevent bats from making a home in your house. In such a case, it would be best to go for a permanent bat control measure which ensures that bats do not return to roost in your home.

If you are not comfortable adopting bat control measures, then you can even hire a professional, but be prepared to shell out a few thousands based on the size of your home, the equipment used, the time spent on fixing the holes and crevices and the material used to seal off the holes and openings. Also, before hiring the services of a professional, it is best to get an estimate.
