Our team at Dixie Exterminators specializes in squirrel control and exclusion in Smyrna, Georgia. We will trap and remove any squirrels currently on your property and seal up any entry points to prevent them from coming back. Our wildlife team is experienced in finding all the potential entry points that squirrels could use, including roof gaps, roof vents, and gable vents around the attic. We can also replace any insulation that squirrels have destroyed.
Squirrel Proofing Your Home
To prevent attracting squirrels, practice good sanitation around your property. Keep pet food put away and garbage cans and grills covered.
You can also squirrel-proof your trees and shrubs by pruning branches six feet away from the ground and the roof of your property. If the trees are sufficiently far apart, you can also fasten a 12-inch-wide band of sheet metal around the trunks six feet from the ground.
Cage your bulbs by setting metal cages into planting holes, or place a wire mesh over the entire bed once you've finished planting. This will avoid any interference with new growth.
Barriers are essential when it comes to protecting your flowers and vegetables. Using chicken wire, hardware cloth, or 1- to 2-inch metal mesh can keep animals and pests from getting to your plants. You can also cover newly planted vegetables with a chicken wire fence to give them an extra layer of protection.
If you're looking to keep squirrels away from your bird feeder, one way to do so is by setting up a diversion feeding station. Providing squirrels with their own food source will make them less likely to bother your birds. Plus, it'll only take them a few minutes to figure out where the food is coming from, so you won't have to worry about them bothering your birds for long.
