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.

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!
