San Diego Squirrel Removal Control

About Squirrels: Squirrels are one of the more common nuisance wildlife animals that we deal with in San Diego. Most of the squirrels in San Diego become a problem when they choose to live inside a home or building. Squirrels very frequently enter attics, often chewing their way in. Mother squirrels like to raise their litter of usually four young, in the early spring and early autumn, inside attics.  In the below photo, we've removed four young squirrels from the attic of a home. They also commonly go down chimneys. For professional San Diego squirrel removal, give us a call at 619-313-4122.

San Diego Squirrel Emails:

I'm sorry to bother you with this, but you seem to really know what you're doing, and I'm at my wits end here in San Diego. Another "wildlife removal expert" came to my house today to address the squirrel situation, and suggested the use of glue traps, which was really very disappointing. So, I've decided to work up the courage to trap them myself. I'm getting anxious because these squirrels are not in my attic or basement. They're in my apartment. Well, really, they're living in the drop-ceiling over my bathroom and kitchen, but I found pawprints indicating that they've actually been inside the house. Also, a few nights ago, one of them climbed down my wall and tried to get in through my baseboard heating. The only thing I had on hand was aluminum foil, so I shoved it into the baseboard. As I was doing that, I could feel the animal clawing at the foil, and it started making frantic screeching sounds (or maybe that was just me?) It eventually gave up after about a half hour, and went back up into my ceiling. More than anything else, I'm concerned about the possibility of snagged or chewed electrical wiring. Having opened up the ceiling tiles and taken a peek, I can confirm that I have two adults and at least three young squirrels on my hands. The young squirrels do have fur, so I would imagine that they are old enough now to fend for themselves. I need your advice about traps. I thought repeater traps might be the way to go, but since these traps will have to placed on my drop-ceiling tiles, I'm concerned about weight issues, especially once the animals are inside the trap.

hi there, i think we have squirrels (or something else) in our house. it's a double wide, triple decker in san diego. our bedroom is off the back porch (which is definitly rotting in some places and also next to a big tree). our unit is on the 2nd floor. last night around 4am we heard scratching and chewing in the ceiling that made its way across the room and stopped when we pounded with a broom. we would very much like advice with how to proceed. I haven't had a chance to look around the perimiter for areas where they might get in. thanks alisha
