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.

Joliet Squirrel Control
Joliet Squirrel Control
Joliet, IL- Controlling squirrels is no simple task. First off, because of the risk squirrels present in terms of home damage most home owners insurance policies will not even cover the damages. This means immediate squirrel removal is necessary in stopping nuisance squirrels from causing further damage. Our Joliet squirrel control services are here for just that purpose. We get rid of squirrels in a timely manner so damages are stopped as quickly as possible. First we start our Joliet squirrel control with a home inspection to access damages done by pest squirrels along with find all entry points, both being used and possible areas. Problem squirrels will typically enter through vents, attic fans, soffits and by chewing into wood. With nuisance squirrels there are very few materials that will stop them from gnawing their way into a home if they are determined, we have even seen them gnaw through the thick metal gutter material. Our Joliet squirrel control consists of trapping squirrels and making sure all active entry points and possible entry points have squirrel exclusion work done to prevent future squirrels from trying to gain access. If squirrel proofing is not done or is done improperly other squirrels will take advantage of the now vacant den site. Squirrels also at times carry large amounts of leaves and sticks to create a nesting area also known as a drey. We remove nesting, provide squirrel odor removal treatments and also perform necessary work to keep squirrels from gaining easy access to the roof of your home. If pest squirrels have been causing a stir at your home give us a call for a squirrel removal consultation, our Joliet squirrel removal services will have you squirrel free in no time!
