Will the city or county animal services help me with a squirrel issue?

Once you realize that your home might be infested by squirrels, you might find yourself in doubt of what the proper thing would it be to do about it. Squirrel infestations can be tricky for various reasons. Firstly, squirrels are, in general, very innocent and friendly creatures to encounter. However, no matter how innocent they may seem, they can cause extensive damage to a home, including chewing on wire utilities, creating holes and gaps within the infrastructure of the home, feeding on the crops of your garden and devastating plants, as well as carry infectious disease. Secondly, the fact that in some areas squirrels classify as protected species, meaning that it is illegal for you to harm them in any way, can put a giant question mark over your decision of a proper removal process.

The first thing you would maybe consider doing might be to call your city or county animal services to help you with squirrel infestation, and you might be wondering if they would be willing to help you out. Sadly, aiding with squirrel infestations is not something animal services, be it city or country, usually perform. In urban areas, squirrel inhabitations are quite frequent, so you can see that handling them might pose an unnecessary spending of resources, which is why the problem would most likely remain on you to handle it. Considering that calling city or county animal services would prove to be useless, you are left to make the right decision on your own.

Since you can't count on city or county animal services to help you get rid of unwanted squirrels in your home, the next best thing would be to try to determine the type of the squirrel (is it a grey, read or the flying squirrel?) and observe the behavior of these animals. Try to determine how many of them there are, where they are most likely located in your home, have they nested or whether or not you are dealing with a female that had had babies in your home. Take notes on as many details as you can, about the type, habits and behavior of these squirrels, which will make the further removal more effective.

The best way for you to free your home of the squirrel infestation is to hire a professional animal removal company to do it for you. The information you've gathered will serve as a great help to a professional to determine the right way to remove squirrels from your home, in a manner that will be relatively fast and effective. Make sure that you take adequate protective measures after the experts remove all animals from your home, such as trimming any long tree branches near your house, spreading short wire along your fence and repairing the damage that these squirrels have already caused in your home.
