Orlando Squirrel Trapper

Squirrel Information: The Eastern Gray Squirrel is notorious for chewing into attics, and living there, particularly in the early autumn and spring.

Squirrels are one of the nuisance wildlife critters that I commonly deal with in the Orlando area. I humanely trap and remove squirrels or exclude them from homes. Here are some of the common problems people encounter with squirrels:
  • Squirrels living in the attic of a home
  • Squirrels causing property damage outside
  • Squirrels causing health or safety concerns

 Expert Squirrel Control Servicing Central Florida

I deal with squirrels on an almost daily basis, and have been working with this nuisance animal for 7 years. I do not perform squirrel extermination. Rather, I am a humane squirrel trapper company, and I prefer to use live trapping and relocation, or exclusion. The best way to achieve effective squirrel control is to understand the animal and its behavior, and establish the appropriate course of action given the property and matter at hand. Squirrels are not bad animals, but they are common in urban areas, Orlando included of course, and I excel at solving squirrel problems quickly, professionally, and effectively. I aim for permanent results, to keep those squirrels away for good!

Squirrels: Damage To Insulation Caused By These Critters? One of the main reasons that you want to get rid of squirrels that have made their way into your home is that they can actually damage your home and that will cost you a lot of money. Some of that damage is what can be done to your insulation. Squirrels damage to insulation can be large if the squirrels are left unchecked in your home. The damage to the insulation is done so that the squirrel can more easily come in and go out of your home as well as to find a hiding place in your walls. They also use it as nesting material. There are ways to recognize damage done by squirrels; the first way is to check if the squirrels damage to insulation looks as if it is done to nest. Squirrels do not have much trouble chewing through the insulation because they actually need to chew to keep their teeth from growing too much because their teeth never stop growing. The chewing to the insulation has the dual purpose of preventing their teeth from getting too big to eat and of course nesting and seeking shelter. If you spot that you have damage to your insulation, you’ll then want take the steps necessary to get rid of the squirrels before the damage is much greater.

 Example Squirrel Problems in the Orlando area

Hello Ben, First, thank you for taking your time to build such an informative website! I have a squirrel living in my attic. I noticed the sounds when I moved into another bedroom upstairs a couple weeks ago. Now it wakes me up every morning at 6am sharp! I can hear it running up the wall to the attic vent (that has been pulled open) to go foraging for the morning. My problem is that when I went up into the attic to check for the nest, I found that it goes down the attic wall where it can't be seen so I can't see if there are babies. My question is: if there are babies will I hear them? Or will they be too young to make noise still at this time of year? There seems to be complete silence after the squirrel leaves in the morning. It would be very easy to stop the squirrel from coming back in since my house is brick and the vent is easy to permanently seal but I don't want to kill the babies if there are any! Thanks, Tom

Hi, Ben. My reason for writing is to congratulate you for your excellent article. I get so tired of reading sloppily-written stuff that is a joy to see an article that is so clear, well-organized, and complete as yours. Good job! I also commend you for your emphasis on the humane treatment of squirrels. I spent yesterday afternoon removing and replacing drywall to deal with a nest in the bedroom wall. My frustration with the squirrels has led to some dark thoughts lately, and your plea for compassion has turned me around. There is still at least one in the attic, and I now know that my next step is to search for the babies. Can’t wait. Chris
