We HUMANELY get Squirrels OUT & Keep them OUT! Do you have squirrels in your attic or elsewhere in your property? You can attempt to trap the squirrels yourself and if you succeed.. Great! BUT, if you fail you have just successfully trained the squirrel to avoid the trap. Now making it harder for a professional trapper and possibly costing yourself more than if you would have called a professional in the first place.
Squirrel Trapping Professionals can deal with squirrels in your attic? Scratching sounds in the walls? We trap squirrels and relocate them far away so they cannot make their way back into your attic. Some of the Squirrels that we can help you to EVICT & relocate are: Eastern Grey Squirrels, Flying Squirrels, Fox Squirrels.
No need to inspect. No matter what if you have heard noises in your attic – you have critters. We come out prepared to trap any species. Based upon our inspection, we will decided from the animal signs the kind of trap(s) and bait(s) that we need to use to be successful at getting the critters out of your house & attic. Other Squirrel Trapping Companies may want to charge you for an inspection – we do not. You hire us to trap and there are no hidden fees or per species charge. A part of the trapping service includes us performing a thorough inspection to figure out how the squirrels are getting in and provide you with a proposal to seal up your home so you will not have encounters with squirrels or other critters again.
If a squirrel is in your fireplace or running around inside your house… we will come out and spend up to an hour trying to remove the squirrel. We have 100% success rate of hand catching all squirrels that we have been called out to remove.
We charge a flat rate squirrel trapping fee per week. There is NO set up fee, NO per animal fee, NO need for an estimate or quote – simply CALL US! The trapping fee is all inclusive: Five (5) trips out every single day to set the trap, check the trap and to relocate Squirrels trapped. It is the law in the State of TX that the traps are checked every single day – No exceptions. Every trapper is struggling to trap squirrels during the time of the year when Mother Squirrels are raising their young. Although we will trap only if that is what you wish, but because of the greater success when coupled with exclusion, we highly “recommend” doing both the trapping & exclusion together. Regardless if you chose for us to do an inspection or go straight to trapping – we will immediately provide you with a quote for the exclusion work.
Yes, in about 75% of cases of any squirrel in an attic, there’s a litter of 3-5 baby squirrels. The most common reason for a squirrel to enter an attic and choose to live there is the case of a female who needs a safe place to give birth and raise its babies. The mother squirrel usually gives birth shortly after moving into the attic, within 1-2 weeks, and then spends about 8 weeks nursing the baby squirrels. At about 6-8 weeks and beyond, the young squirrels start to run around the attic on their own, and that’s when homeowners really start to hear a lot of noise – one squirrel has now become five! The presence of these young complicates the matter of removing squirrels, because if you trap and remove the adult female during the first 6 weeks after birth, the young are left behind. I’ve seen several dozen such cases: a homeowner uses some sort of trap to remove the mom, but the noise continues, and no more are caught. When I get called out to such homes, I crawl through the attic and find the babies, remove them by hand, put them in a sack, and remove them from the attic.
We are one of the only trapping companies who has a licensed wildlife rehabber on staff who will hand feed the babies until they can be relocated back into the wild when they are large enough to fend for themselves. If the problem had been taken care of properly in the first place, the young would be able to stay with the mother during relocation, where they would stand the best chance of survival and being raised properly. Thus, the presence of baby squirrels makes simple trapping a not-so-simple matter. The babies, as they lay in a cluster in an attic, aren’t capable of entering traps. If you do trap a squirrel, check for nipples! If you can see them, you’ve got babies up there, and they’ve got to be found and removed, and it’s often no easy task. The good thing about squirrels is that people don’t often notice or do anything until the young are up and running around, and at that time it’s easy to trap or exclude the young as well. By 12 weeks old, they are pretty much adult size.
First of all, it is the law to check the traps every day. Many people and wildlife removal companies ignore such laws but it is imperative to make the most out of your trapping dollars and it is the humane thing to do. It is only legal to release a squirrel where we have written permission to do so. Our standard is at least 10 miles away from the catch site. Many critters are amazingly adept at tracking their way back to a home range. If you relocate a mother squirrel with babies, the mother will bolt from the trap and run away as soon as it’s opened. Let the babies go as well, even if they are very young, and the mother squirrel will always come back for them and bring them to a new shelter. Bear in mind, this time period may be tough for her and her young, but the young stand the best chance of survival with their mother, even over a licensed wildlife rehabber.
Since no two homes are alike, no two exclusion proposals are the same price. Exclusion is the act of using animal proof materials, devices and methods to keep the animals OUT. Once the animals are taken out, they leave behind odors, feces and scents which may attract other animals. If trapping alone (without exclusion) it just clears the way for the next one to find their way in unless you block off its ability to “Get back IN”.
We only use the highest quality animal-proof materials and devices, therefore, we are proudly able to guarantee that no animal will get past the areas where we have performed the exclusion services. With all of this said, there is no way to give a price for exclusion work over the phone. WHILE we are setting up the traps it is necessary for us to determine how the animals are gaining access or entry into the building or property – this is when we are able to provide a proposal for the cost of the exclusion work. IF the proposal is acceptable we will perform the exclusion work while the trapping is being performed which increases the overall success of the entire process.
