If you have squirrels that have formed home in your attic, you need to find the most effective way to get rid of them. Many people say that rodents like squirrels can be made to go away when there is a lot of light, odor and noise. In other cases, many propose that squirrels be removed by setting traps and cages where they can be captured. Often getting them out of our attic becomes tricky for which you need professional services.
Attics are usually warm and cozy and form attractive spaces for squirrels to nest. Female squirrels can have babies in such secure environment, but for homeowners it presents an unsanitary condition and extensive damages can be done by squirrels as well. For those who wish to remove the possibility of having squirrels settling in such spaces, they can ensure that the attic area is well lighted and cleaned regularly. Usually such spaces have low light filtering in as well as there are several nooks and corners created where squirrels could take up space. Hence, keeping the attic corners, clean and neat will help to prevent squirrels from setting up nest in such spaces. There are certain smells that such animals cannot bear such as ammonia. For that reason ammonia soaked rags are usually kept in the corners of attic spaces. It is said that such smell is akin to the urine of predators for such rodents and hence, they tend to leave such spaces where such risks exist.
Besides repellents one can also opt for multiple animal or single animal cages or taps. One needs to lure in the animals with the bait and the trap door mechanism, then gets activated and closes the way out when the animal comes in. If there are young ones in the nest already, it is best to wait it out till they become old and then set traps for them. It is best that one does not try to poison the animals. Hence, they should be baited or discouraged from setting up nests. If one is unsuccessful with such attempts by themselves, they should resort to a professional pest control service in Clifton Park like All Star Pest Solutions.
