Chicago Squirrel Removal
Squirrel activity as weather gets colder goes hand in hand. Chicago squirrel control hits 2 peaks yearly and squirrels have 2 litters of young per year. We provide Chicago squirrel removal services for all nuisance squirrel situations such as home squirrel removal, squirrel trapping & rescue as well as squirrel proofing and exclusion which is necessary to keep squirrels out for good once the home has been rid of the problem squirrels.
Problem Squirrel Prevention
Common places squirrels enter are attic fans, attic vents, soffit pockets, fascia and any gaps or weakened areas on a roof. We are asked many times how far do branches need to be cut back to keep squirrels off of roofs. Branches must be trimmed to 8ft away from the structure to prevent squirrels from jumping. When Chicago squirrel removal is needed we suggest branches be cut once complete removal is accomplished to prevent stranded squirrels from dying inside the home.
Dead Squirrel Removal
Dead squirrel removal can not only be costly but also problematic as dead animal fluids can stain wood and drywall causing the need for cut out and removal for odor elimination. Our Chicago squirrel control services eliminate squirrel problems and solve future problems with quality squirrel proof materials custom cut and fit to your structure.
Squirrel control in Chicago is also needed in other areas aside from just attics. Squirrels are removed from chimneys, furnaces and dryers when they have entered an exhaust and become stuck. We have also provided Chicago squirrel trapping for squirrels that have decided to take residence inside a garage or shed.
Many times the cause for squirrel entry is roofing in poor condition or dilapidated soffit and fascia boards. If you are experiencing problem squirrels in your home and need Chicago squirrel control services contact us today!

Squirrel Exclusion & Squirrel Proofing
Here 2 squirrels were trapped in an attic
How to get rid of squirrels and how to keep squirrels out of a home is usually all down to the type of squirrel exclusion you are looking to put in place. Squirrels are great jumpers and climbers so keeping squirrels from off of a roof or keeping squirrels from climbing on a roof are next to impossible. With down spouts, trees and power lines squirrels definitely have the advantage for gaining roof access. Our squirrel exclusion solutions range from keeping squirrels from being able to climb trees and down spouts with ease as well as providing squirrel exclusion to common entry point areas such as eves, soffits and weak fascia areas on your roof. Rotting wood is a huge attractant to squirrels creating an entry point into your attic however a new roof is never a quick option. We can have squirrel exclusion done for poor or weak areas that will keep you squirrel free until wood or roof replacement is an option for you.
Here a steel grate was put in place to keep squirrels out
Squirrel proofing is almost always necessary for homes especially homes that have had squirrels and now have residual squirrel smells left behind. The most common squirrel proofing we provide is squirrel proofing of attic vents and fans, considering these are always built with a poor mesh screen that birds, squirrels and raccoons easily push through to gain entry. Squirrel proofing materials are very few when it comes to a selection. Many “handy men” have tried their hand at squirrel proofing and have realized they should not provide services they know nothing about, especially when squirrel proofing a home that squirrels are still inside! Squirrels will gnaw and chew through wood, sheet metal the thickness of a gutter, aluminum, roofing shingles, chicken wire, wire mesh and just about any other material you can find at Home Depot or Menards. We only use steel when squirrel proofing homes with a specific gauge thickness. We are the premier wildlife and animal proofing & exclusion company in Illinois with a system formulated over years and years of research. If your looking for squirrel exclusion or squirrel proofing call us today!
