Squirrel Removal in the Macon, Georgia Area

There are many species of squirrels. In fact, they have their own taxonomic family, Sciuridae, which includes all squirrels. We provide humane removal and relocation of any squirrels that gets into your home or building.

Only two squirrels are commonly encountered as nuisance animals in buildings in the Macon, Georgia are: the Eastern gray squirrel (which we'll talk about on this page), and the flying squirrel.

Two additional species, the red squirrel and the fox squirrel, are much less common but are encountered occasionally; and once in a very great while, chipmunks (who are also squirrels) may get into a house, usually in the basement or crawl space.

Gray squirrels are not always gray. There's a lot of color variation. A lot of them are reddish-brown, some are gray and brown, and we've even come across jet black or pure white squirrels. The official name is still gray squirrel, however.

In nature, gray squirrels usually live in hollow trees, only coming to the ground to find nuts, bury them, and retrieve them after they've been buried. This is part of the squirrel's job in nature: They plant a lot of trees.

Squirrels as Pests

Technically, squirrels are not pests. They're nuisance animals; and unlike rats and mice, they have to be humanely trapped and relocated, without using poisons. There's no such thing as a "squirrel exterminator".

Nonetheless, squirrels do cause damage and health risks when they get into attics and other parts of homes. They tear up the insulation, gnaw on the timbers and whatever has been been stored up there, damage the ductwork, and poop and pee all over the place. Even worse, they gnaw on wires and can start a fire. Thousands of homes are lost to fire this way every year.

Aside from making a mess of the place, squirrels create health hazards from their urine, droppings, and shed parasites. They also cause odor problems, especially if you have air-conditioning or heating equipment in the attic.

Long story short, when squirrels get into your home, they must be removed.

We have top-secret, newfangled, stealth, night-vision cameras to help solve difficult squirrel problems.

When squirrels get into your home, they need to be removed. Not only that, but the damage they caused needs to be fixed, the mess they created needs to be cleaned up, and all the ways that squirrels can get back in need to be found and sealed. Your home needs to be made animal-proof to keep squirrels and other nuisance wildlife out of the attic. This is called squirrel exclusion, and it's absolutely necessary for long-term squirrel control.

We also clean up after the squirrels after we remove and relocate them. This may include removing their droppings and nests, disinfecting and sanitizing the attic, neutralizing odors, and optionally, replacing contaminated insulation. We'll leave your home clean, squirrel-free, and squirrel-proof. We guarantee it.

If you have a problem with squirrels, please call us for a professional inspection and squirrel-removal consultation.
