Squirrel Removal & Control
Squirrels are everywhere. They certainly keep wildlife control companies busy throughout the year. These pesky wildlife animals inhabit all building areas but create the most problems when they enter the walls or attic of a home or business.
Are you being kept awake at night by scuffling and chewing sounds? You may have a squirrel or more racing through your walls or in your attic. And, if you suspect one, you most likely have the family.
Squirrels can enter homes and commercial buildings through the tiniest holes. They will chew their way in when structurally damaged areas and construction gaps occur. They may even get caught in attics, soffits, eaves and crawl spaces. Like other critters such as rats, mice and other rodents, they enter to seek food, warmth and nesting areas.
You must be aware that while you hear one, an infestation may erupt.
Eastern Gray, Fox, Red and Flying
4 Common Squirrels
Five types of squirrels are commonly found in Ohio; eastern gray, fox, red and, out of all, the most common, the flying squirrel.
But, out of all the squirrels, the eastern gray squirrel is the most problematic type that homeowners complain about most.
Safe and Effective
Using live traps such as the Tomahawk One Way Excluder provides a useful and efficient means of catching a nuisance squirrel. The process of determining how and where to set the traps takes time, experience, and knowledge. Depending on the squirrel problem, traps can be set in various areas such as on the roof, outside walls, your attic and any other space where the squirrel may be entering and exiting.
The first step in trapping is to locate where the squirrel is entering. All spots will be closed off, leaving one or two open. One-way door traps are set on the exterior. To exit, the squirrel must push through the one-way door, but unfortunately for the squirrel, once he leaves, he cannot get back in.
Once it is determined all of the squirrels are outside, the entry and exit points must be repaired and sealed so they cannot come back in.
If, in addition to squirrel removal and control services, the extensive repair is needed, please feel free to consult with us at Green Valley Wildlife Solutions.

Below we list a few problems squirrels cause.
- They gather and live in large groups during the winter and become more vigorous come spring.
