Grey Squirrel Pest Control in Southend-on-Sea
Grey squirrels are found in a wide range of habitats from parks and gardens to woodland. They spend part of their time foraging on the ground but are always within easy reach of trees.
They usually have their young either in Dreys (nests made of leaves and twigs) or in holes in trees.
They will also breed in roof and attic spaces where they may build their nests from insulation for lofts. Grey squirrels do not hibernate but are less active during periods of cold weather. They normally have two litters each year; the first in February to March and a second in June to July. The litter size averages three to four, and the young are independent at about three months.
Damage and nuisance caused by Squirrels
The grey squirrel is classified as a rodent but is not regarded as vermin as unlike rats and mice, they do not normally present a human health risk.
Problems occur when squirrels gain access to roof spaces. If this happens, they may cause damage to electrical wiring, insulation, plastic water pipes and so on. This can sometimes result in fires or flooding.
The noise they make can be very annoying and can be identified differently from a rat as it will normally only happen during the day and it is more of a thump, thump, thump sound as they hop rather that scurry.
How do Natures-Way control them?
Believe it or not, it is now an offence to release a Grey Squirrel’s back in to the wild once captured. We have to use humane traps which quickly dispatch a problem squirrel rather than capturing them alive.
Professional and Effective Rabbit Control Throughout Southend-on-Sea and Essex
Natures-Way Pest Control Services specialise in traditional methods of rabbit management. For many years, we have been successfully carrying out rabbit control programmes in many environments. From a few of rabbits under a garden shed in Southend-on-Sea to catching hundreds of rabbits from farmland in Rural Essex, private estates and nature reserves.
Successful rabbit control will quite often involve several different methods to be used, at Natures-Way we have the skills, knowledge and expertise to remove rabbits from any situation.
We only use traditional and environmentally friendly methods of Rabbit management
Our Rabbit Control Methods Include:
Ferreting – this is an extremely effective way of catching large amounts of rabbits if carried out methodically and professionally. Selectively bred ferrets in Southend-on-Sea are used to flush rabbits out of their underground tunnel network into well placed purse and long nets, well trained dogs in Southend are always ready in case one manages to kick out of a net.
Cage Traps – These can be useful when set correctly in certain situations such as rabbits migrating from neighbouring property in Essex.
Shooting – Trained and experienced marksmen use various calibre rifles and shotguns with great success where it is safe to do so and does not cause a nuisance or alarm. Shooting can be carried at night or during the day, it can also be used with ferrets.
Lamping – Lamping with trained dogs is a highly effective way of removing rabbits from areas where other methods may be undesirable or as a supplement to other methods.
