Fall Squirrel Control Tips for New Jersey Homeowners

As the cool days and colder nights of fall transition to winter, Squirrels begin to search for food and shelter.  If you are looking for strategies to remove or prevent squirrels from gaining entry into your New Jersey home, read the article below for some great tips.

First, remove food sources: things like bird see for example, should be moved away from the home. Second, consider protecting your gutters and cover down spouts – Products like “Gutter guards” will not only reduce the amount of leaf debris, but may also reduce the squirrels ability to enter through the roof top and facia boards.  Call on the Professionals here at RM Termite if you have a pesky squirrel problem – our team of experts will evaluate your home and find the path and entry places and remove the unwanted squirrel from your attic or home.

Focusing on a preventive effort to reduce squirrels from entering your home in the first place is one of the best things you can do. We recommend sealing up and repairing all entry points after removing the squirrels so they no longer have access.  We also recommend taking the following steps to prevent squirrels from entering your crawl space or basement:

  1. Trim tree branches that may overhang the roof line.
  2. Remove firewood stacked against the building.
  3. If there are cracks in your foundation wall, repair them.
  4. Finally – Seal all entry points
