Permanent Squirrel Exclusion

Squirrel Inspection

1. The Home Inspection. The first step towards a quiet, squirrel free attic is a complete and thorough inspection of the interior and exterior of your home. In the attic (basement, crawlspace, and walls), locate nesting, feces, tunneling and other signs of infestation. Identify any damage the animals make have caused to your home such as chewing on wires, living in boxes, etc... Find the exterior holes that the squirrels are using to enter your attics, walls, and homes.

Squirrel Removal

2. Install a Squirrel Exit Tunnel. Locate the squirrels main point of entry into your attic. Once identified, a Squirrel Exit Tunnel will temporarily install on the outside of this hole, on the outside of the structure. This exit device allows any squirrels still inside to exit without re-entry. This eliminates the need to trap the squirrels inside your attic. Squirrels can cause more damage if you lock them inside the attic without a way to get out.

Squirrel Proofing

3. Squirrel Proof your home! We squirrel proof every opening on your roof and more! Verminators have identified all existing openings or potentinally vulnerable areas that squirrels are either using now or could use in the future. Verminators use only the best quality materials for animal proofing your homes and businesses. Verminators have long guaranteed squirrel proofing.

Gray Squirrels

The gray squirrel and the fox squirrel are found throughout America. The generic name Sciurus, means “squirrel” in Latin and was derived from two Greek words, “skia” (shadow) and “oura” (tail). Taken literally, the name means “an animal that sits in the shadow of its tail,” which both species can do.
The tail is a squirrels most distinctive physical feature. It provides while running, jumping, and climbing, and acts as a parachute to break unexpected falls. It supplies warmth in cold weather and shade on sunny days. When flicked rapidly back and forth, the tail acts as a warning signal, or a decoy to distract predators.
The gray squirrel is mostly gray with white on its undersides. The fox squirrel has many color phases that vary from silver-gray with a predominantly black head, to solid black, to a light buff or brownish color mixed with reddish yellow. Fox squirrels are larger than grays with some adults exceeding three pounds. Gray squirrels appear more slender-bodied with adults weighing 1-1 ½ pounds.
The most important habitat components to provide for gray squirrels are mature, mast-producing hardwoods and large cavity-producing trees. Fox squirrels habitat includes mature, open pine forest having a variety of mast production and cavity development.
