The Grey Squirrel
Elmbridge Borough Council provides a pest control treatment for squirrels (in domestic loft space only). This is a charged service.
What does treatment involve?
This treatment involves three visits. The first visit is to carry out a survey of the loft, place and set two spring loaded traps and the remaining two visits are to check the traps and remove any catches.
At the time of the visit, we will leave with you an |advice sheet. This includes information on your treatment i.e. chemicals/traps used, health and safety precautions and other relevant advice as well as our terms and conditions.
Signs of infestation
- Gnawing of cables, building structures and insulation - usually they are searching for food or nesting material.
- Tree damage, caused by gnawing, (mainly to hardwoods - especially sycamore and beech).
- Scratching noises and droppings, however, these can be mistaken for rat droppings.
If you submit an online request form we will contact you to arrange a suitable appointment, alternatively call 01372 474750 during office hours (choose the Pest Control option).
