Rochester Squirrel Removal

Although I wrote everything I know about squirrel issues for this website, oftentimes a problem with squirrels in the attic is beyond the scope of the do-it-yourself homeowner to solve. We have a professional squirrel expert in Rochester, New York that handles problems with wildlife. We have the tools, techniques, and experience that help us do a far better job at wildlife removal than a non-experienced homeowner could. We possess licensing that allows us to do certain types of work legally, that non-licensed homeowners in the state of New York are not allowed to do. For the welfare of your situation, and the squirrels, in some cases it's best to hire a pro.

Rochester Squirrel Situation: Hi David, I'm having a squirrel issue that appears to be common based on what I've read on your website. My main problem is that I do not have full access to the attic space to properly execute the job. Here is the scenario: The squirrels are entering a sophit and/or vent of a small trailer. There is a small space for me to operate (enough room to fit my head through). I pulled out some of the insulation in order to make room for a trap (Safeguard) and 2 babies unexpectedly fell to the ground earlier this week. I believe there are still more stashed away above (I heard them). Early attempts to get the mother squirrel ended up in consumed bait (crackers, peanut butter) but the trap did not shut. My guess is that mice may be up there since they are the only ones that can fit through the small grid. Currently, the trap is active with a granola bar set as bait with glue boards surrounding the exterior of the trap to deter (or catch) possible mice. The sophit entries are too big to simply attach a one-way trap. My main preference is to catch the squirrel with the Safeguard trap. I'm also afraid of repairing the building exterior and possibly keeping the adult squirrel(s) inside. I understand they freak out if they are held captive. Any suggestions on how I can improve my approach? I've been at this for about 2 weeks. Is it dangerous for me to lift my head up into the crawl space? Thank you. Regards, Chris S

My response: I'd wait until the young are big enough to be trapped, and then set the traps outside, right near the entry hole. Of course, trapping can be tricky for beginners, so I don't have any extra advice not already written in my trapping guide.

I have a big back yard and grow lots of tomatoes. I've tried everything to fence off each tomato plant but i've practically lost my whole crop now for 3 years straight to tomato eating squirrels. I'm in the city so shooting isn't an option. I could trap them live but don't want to send them to somewhere else where they are going to be a problem. I've been thinking about a rat trap. One is called a Tom Cat Rat Snap trap. The other is a Rat zapper. Do you think either of those would work in my yard?

Hi David, Last we I noticed a chewed up screen on the outside of an attic vent, after hearing noises in the attic. Squirrels?! So I have since secured the breach but may have trapped one or two IN the attic because I still hear noise up there! Need your help!
