Animal Control Solutions provides rodent control, squirrel removal, squirrel control, and squirrel pest control in Arlington, VA.
The Eastern Gray Squirrel (squirrel) can adapt to residential and commercial environments easily and usually by choice. Squirrels adapt easily due to the abundance of food and shelter. Humans provide food sources such as bird feeders or squirrel feeders that are replenished regularly. Urban landscapes provide attractive nuts, buds, and fruits from trees that squirrels will favor. Once a squirrel has found a prevalent food source it will look for a nesting site that is relatively close to that food source. In most instances, your home or business becomes the nesting site due to increases in urbanization or land development in squirrel inhabited areas, a decline in large native trees in established neighborhoods, and the overpopulation of squirrels.
Squirrels look for aan area to enter your home that poses the least resistance. Gable vents, attic fans, rotten wood behind your gutter, or your soffit are a few locations. Once the den hole is established they will start to build the nest or drey. The noise level in your home will increase once the squirrels begin bringing nesting material and food inside. The noise really escalates when breeding season begins and when the young squirrels venture out and begin gnawing on the roof trusses or wall studs to wear down their teeth. Chewed electrical wires create the risk of fire and odor issues from their droppings and urine can create a biohazard. As long as we continue to urbanize, cut down native nesting trees, and provide an abundance of food to the Eastern Gray Squirrel they will continue to adapt to residential and commercial environments and pose a threat to homes and human health.
Squirrel exclusion (Repairs) and squirrel trapping are key to effective squirrel removal. Knowing their biological habits, performing the necessary repairs, and the use of traps will solve most squirrel problems. When ideal habitat, water, and food for squirrels are within your property or structure, mfull exclusion services are recommended to prevent and or eliminate new squirrels from trying to enter your residential or commercial structure.
There are many different ways to get rid of squirrels, but if you are looking for a professional, permanent solution to your squirrel problem, with a written guarantee and warranted for a one year minimum, you have found one of the only companies in Fairfax that can provide you with this and back it up.
Animal Control Solutions will inspect every square foot of the exterior of your home or business looking for current and potential squirrel entry points. When they find these current and potential entry points they will seal them with 35 – 50 year sealant that is backed with a permanent squirrel proof material, install rigid screens, or chimney caps and covers. If you just repair the current entry points without sealing the potential penetration points, a different family of squirrels will just move to those potential entry points.

What happens after the squirrels are removed from your structure?
Squirrel Exclusion is a technique where all the current and potential mouse entry points stated in your squirrel service agreement, are made uninhabitable or impervious to a squirrel by the use/application/installation of exclusion materials by Your Wildlife Professionals, Inc.
Squirrel Exclusion materials are squirrel proof building materials or components that may be used/applied/installed/dispensed, but are not limited to, caulk, adhesives, or sealants, backer rod, chinking, foam, wire mesh, metal flashing or coil stock, chimney caps, or any other squirrel proof building construction materials that will prevent squirrels from entering your structure once the squirrel repairs have been completed
Squirrel Exclusion materials will be applied to all current and potential squirrel entry points that lead into the interior of your structure from the exterior of your structure. Squirrel entry points are any area typically above the gutter lines of your structure and any areas that may emit air draft from your structure that are greater than or equal to 2 inches round or 2 inches wide and 32 inches long regardless of its orientation.
How Animal Control Solutions removes squirrels from your structure.
Squirrel removal is a process of removing squirrels from a residential or commercial property by the use of traps and exclusion materials.
Professional grade single door or colony humane capture traps are commonly used. Live single door cage traps are anchored on the building next to the hole. Live colony traps are anchored over the hole and the squirrel is forced into the trap. Once the squirrels are trapped, we repair the hole where they are entering so that it will not happen again.
