Flying Squirrel Removal Darien CT

Flying Squirrel Removal Darien Ct By Kris And Jill Of Weston Wildlife Specialist

We have done six squirrel and flying squirrel removals this week in Darien and Westport Ct. Flying squirrels are very intelligent and know how to avoid traps. They are only active at night, so everyone knows in the home that they are moving around. It’s not an easy task as flying squirrels have all the nuts they brought in from outside, and they like their warm dwelling.

Now, most guys try to use a repellent and try to get them to leave only to find out 14 days later they’re back! To prevent returning squirrels, we trap and relocating these pests. It may be more challenging, but our clients do not see flying squirrels again. It’s essential to relocate these guys at least 10 miles from the area where we caught them as they will look to return.

After they are trapped and relocated, the sealing and cleaning come into play. This is very important as other flying squirrels or creatures can try to re-enter. After trapping, we do thermal imaging to ensure all pests are removed and locate holes that we can’t see with the naked eye. After that, we start the sealing of the entire top 1/3rd of the house.

After things are sealed, we spray down entry points as they have the pheromones from flying squirrels telling others it’s a happy place. That’s why it is so vital to spray everything down and change any damaged insulation with new. This process deters any future pests from wanting to enter this dwelling. Thermal imaging also shows me any urine and feces that these pests have left behind. Once we seal these guys out, we don’t want any urine smell to attract other creatures to the dwelling.

So when we finish, our clients are pest-free!
