Westchase wildlife control tip of the month:
Hi there David! I live with my parents in Florida, and Westchase animal control we've had some squirrels in our attic since early fall. Today my Dad hired an exterminator to come and trap the squirrels, and I am horrified. Apparently, he puts humane traps up on the roof around the entry hole, Westchase animal control and then retrieves the traps when they catch them. Though I begged not to have this happen, the man told us that squirrels are the leading cause of house fires, and that the law requires him to euthanize them once they Westchase pest control are caught (apparently by chloroform, which is says is "the most humane").
One of the traps caught a squirrel earlier today, and he seems so upset I still hear another squirrel running around in the attic (which Westchase pest control is above my room), so I know there is at least one more), but my greatest concern is that there's a litter of babies in there; to my knowledge, this species has a litter in late fall and early spring (Feb-April). Though the exterminator Westchase wildlife removal tried to look around up in the attic, it is too small (and too thick with insulation) to see where exactly the squirrels are living, how much damage has been done, and/or if there are babies up there. I would be horrified if the adult Westchase wildlife removal squirrels were trapped and taken away, leaving the little ones to die of exposure and starvation.
Please help me know what to say and do to protect the welfare of these animals; I know that it's best that they don't live in our attic anymore (I agree that having the house burn down Westchase animal trapping isn't an ideal option) It is now about 7:30 on Friday night, and as I said there is already one squirrel in a trap; we were asked to call the exterminator to come and retrieve him whenever we caught one, so sometime tomorrow we will have to do so. I'm hoping Westchase animal trapping that you can contact me sooner so I can intervene...is it OK to re-release them somewhere else? And if I do, will we be orphaning a litter? Is there any way to tell, without being able to see into the attic? Should we fire the exterminator and wait Westchase animal trapping until early summer, when any babies would be weaned already (and if we do that, would we really be risking a terrible house fire?)
Sorry for so many questions; as you can see, this issue really disturbs me I appreciate your work, and I look forward to your response. Best wishes, Aimee
If you don't want to have squirrels euthanized, the best option is a one-way Westchase exterminator exclusion door. It lets squirrels exit, but not re-enter. If you are concerned that there are young squirrels in the attic, the work should wait until the young are big enough to leave the attic on their own - usually by 5 weeks old. You can tell if the young are big Westchase exterminator enough by the sounds of multiple squirrels running about, instead of just one female.
