There are signs that point to a potential squirrel problem.

Noises: The most common signs of having a squirrel infestation are noises of loud chewing and scratching emanating from walls and ceilings. Squirrels are active during the daytime as opposed to raccoons, mice and rats. If you have heard noises during the day, it is most likely squirrels. Gray squirrels, (Toronto black squirrels are melanistic subgroup of gray squirrels) are mostly active in morning and evening. This is the time they exit or re-enter after a day foraging outdoors. Since squirrels can weigh up to a couple pounds so when they are heard running in an attic they can sound like a larger animal.

Sightings: The best way to confirm that squirrels are living in an attic is to see them entering or exiting.

 

Squirrel Repellents

hat said, in general there are many long-standing old wives’ tales about animal and repellent, and there are many modern products sold meant to evict unwanted critters from property and homes, and most all of them do not work. Some of the old-fashioned standards include naphthalene (moth balls), ammonia, bleach, and even human hair.

 

Squirrel Dangers

They are cute but can damage ones property and therefore many homeowners find squirrels to be pests. Squirrel droppings, like pretty much any wildlife dropping, are associated with Leptospirosis and Salmonella. Do not try to poison a squirrel, there is a likelihood the animal will end up dead in your attic. The unbearable stench of decomposition can last weeks and create additional pest and health problems.

Squirrels in Toronto

Squirrel population in Toronto.

Most Toronto squirrels are melanistic grey squirrels.

If you live in Toronto then you have come across at least a squirrel or two. If you are a home owner and you have trees in your or neighboring lots then you see at least one every day. Squirrels are very adaptive creatures. They move neighborhoods and from house to house easily. They will travel many kilometers to find food when necessary. They will nest on trees when available or in other warm places such as attics. Squirrels can be hard to be trapped if one doesn’t have the right equipment and technique to do so. Even though squirrels are fascinating animals to watch, photograph, and study and they make themselves available for observation in ways that few other animals do, it is not advised to have a large squirrel population living near ones house. Squirrels are generally clever and persistent animals. In residential neighborhoods, they are notorious for eating out of bird feeders, digging in planting pots and flower beds to pull out bulbs which they chew on or to either bury or recover seeds and nuts and for inhabiting sheltered areas including attics and basements.  It is very important to contact a squirrel removal specialist so that the animal doesn’t get hurt during removal and that the squirrel is removed effectively.
