Scratching and Scurrying at Dusk & Dawn?
If you hear activity in your attic or walls in the early morning or in the evening, it is a good indicator that you’re dealing with squirrels.
If you see nesting materials like shredded cloth, lint, insulation, leaves, and grass in your attic or in the walls, you may be dealing with a squirrel.
While squirrels are less likely to leave their droppings or a urine trail around the attic, you will likely still smell a distinguishable odor from their waste.
In order to fully free your Dallas or Fort Worth area home from any rodent or wildlife infestation, the Critter Stop team has created a four-step process. We begin by sealing all of the access points to prevent squirrels from getting into your home. Then, we trap the squirrels for humane, poison-free removal. Once your home is squirrel-free, we sanitize all the areas that were infested. Finally, we set up deterrents outside of the home. This can be especially important for squirrels, who can be very persistent. Even though we do our best to remove all the odor trails and other indicators that could lure squirrels back to your home, they may still want to get back in. This last step of the process is essential to keep squirrels away from your home.
