There’s more information below as well about our professional squirrel control service.

Why squirrel pest control is needed
Grey squirrels were introduced to the UK in the late1800s. They’ve forced our native Red Squirrels into retreat and infected them with Squirrel Pox disease; this kills Reds but not Greys. Reds are now an Endangered Species. Greys, and the aggressive Black variants, are the only squirrels seen in some parts of the UK. However, we are lucky to have Reds still in Scotland; that’s why grey squirrel control in East Scotland is so important.

Grey squirrels are legally classed as pests. They spread fast because they can live in parks & gardens, in villages & cities as well as in much of the countryside. They breed up to 7 babies twice a year; that’s an awful lot of pest squirrels to control. Pest squirrels are rodents like rats so they’re destructive and chew everything they find. They are strong, cause damage by pulling with their front legs and they’ll attack people to get food.

Some examples of squirrel problems we’ve dealt with using squirrel control
Buildings, gardens and plantings are badly damaged by pest squirrels. We’ve used squirrel control in Blairgowrie when we investigated a strange smell and found these pests in the house roof and dead in the water tank. Customers have needed squirrel control in Perth when squirrels moved in under floors and wrecked a kitchen. Squirrels stripped cables and caused electrics to fail in a garage and workshop and we had to use squirrel control in Kinross to get rid of them, and we had to get rid of squirrels in Glenrothes in an industrial unit for the same reason. Proud gardeners needed squirrel control in Pitlochry after the pests dug up spring bulbs.And a customer needed squirrel control in Auchterarder because the pests had driven the Reds from her garden. We carried out an intensive course of pest control by squirrel trapping to catch the squirrels; our customer was delighted when her Reds returned!

Animal welfare in squirrel pest control

With our backgrounds in veterinary science and game-keeping, we take animal welfare very seriously, understand animal welfare legislation and keep up-to-date with new developments. We’re also very skilled in squirrel control work, with years of experience in the correct methods. We’ve never upset a customer or affected a client’s reputation by doing squirrel control poorly.
