SQUIRREL CONTROL

"How Do I Get Squirrels Out Of My House?" 
They are running all over my attic ! 


Harbor Wildlife Control provides the following services:
Trapping, Removal, Habitat Modification and Damage Repairs

Maine is home to three kinds of squirrels. The Eastern Gray Squirrel, Red Squirrel and the Southern Flying Squirrel.

Squirrels have easily adapted to humans. They frequently use buildings as nesting areas. Squirrels love to stay in an attic or soffit. They often find a small opening and will chew a wider hole to gain access to the building. They bring nesting material into the home, and make quite a bit of noise scurrying around and caching nuts.
 They often fall down the chimney flu and make a lot of noise or enter the fireplace. Sometimes they fall down a wall from the attic and get stuck or squirrel trapped in attic from closing up the opening before removing the squirrels. They often chew their way into commercial buildings or apartments. They often enter the attic through the gable vent. Squirrels can cause a fire hazard in homes by bringing in nesting material, and by chewing on power lines. Squirrels can leave behind a lot of droppings and urine in the attic.

The droppings not only smell bad, but they pose a biohazardous risk, and the smell attracts new squirrels. I highly recommend attic decontamination services if you've had squirrels living in your attic. Squirrel Trapping & Removal, Exclusion and Repair Services, This means we not only remove unwanted animals. We repair the damage that the wildlife has done to your home.

Our IPM program for wildlife involves removal, exclusion, and habitat modification. To decrease the opportunity for future conflicts we install screening vents, chimney caps, and close entry holes. Without proper exclusion and follow-up work, the removal of an animal will open up habitat for another animal to move into and your problem will occur again. 

Flying Squirrel Control

Flying squirrels are members of the rodent family. Like all rodents, to keep their teeth sharp they must chew. Homes with flyer colonies often have chewed electrical wires which, if gone unnoticed, can a fire hazard. These animals will set up a "litter box" that can produce stains and smells that are unbearable. The most common complaint from homeowners is from the noise in the walls at night these critters make. It is hard to sleep when you have 30 flyers storing acorns in your home every night. 

Our Wildlife Control Process

Unlike other wildlife control specialists in Maine, when you choose Harbor Wildlife, you’ll work with a team of experienced professionals that leverage the latest advancements in Integrated Pest Management and cutting-edge technology. Our process for wildlife removal and control includes:

Step One: Determine Point(s) Of Entry


Finding out how wildlife are getting in is our first priority. Your technician will evaluate your home and property to determine point of entry. For bats in the attic, a small hole in the roof or gaps in the attic vent are all these pests need to slip in. For larger animals such as racoons, areas around soffits, dormers and under eaves are common entry points.

Step Two: Implement Removal & Control Plan 

Once we know how these pests are getting in, we’ll design a plan of action. Our wildlife control methods include live trapping, relocation, exclusion, and habitat modification.

Step Three: Clean-up 

Unfortunately, wildlife have no regard for you property and will use it as their shelter, and their bathroom. Animal feces and urine have the potential to be dangerous and should only be cleaned up by professionals. After the wildlife problem has been removed, your technician will assist with the waste clean-up. 

Step Four: Post Removal Repairs 

We will install chimney caps, dryer vent covers, and seal areas that wildlife use to access your property. If the damage caused by wildlife is beyond our capabilities, we’ll let you know what needs to be fixed by a contractor, even documenting with pictures.
