Squirrel Control in London: Humane Removal with Traps
Squirrels are known for their capability to cause severe damage to houses. They can chew most of the building materials your house is made of, insulation, cables. Most often, properties in London get infested with squirrels in the attic but the furry rodents also hide anywhere else they feel safe.
Panther Pest Control provides full squirrel control and proofing for your property in London. The technicians use squirrel pest control methods that ensure full squirrel removal and humane dispatch of the furry rodents.
Signs of Squirrels in the House
There are several signs that can tell you there’s a rodent in your house. They resemble the ones of other rodents, like rats and mice, but there are slight differences. The presence of squirrels is usually first noticeable by the loud noises and scratching, often in the attic.
- Scratching noises during the day are made by squirrels. Rats and mice are active at night so if the problem is one of them, you wouldn’t hear the scratching during the day.
- Seeing entry holes in your house. They can be in wood or in metal. These furry guys can gnaw the metal in your home. Only a small entry hole is enough for a squirrel to get inside your home.
- Droppings and urine.
- Foul smell – if a squirrel has died inside your house and is decaying.
Prevent Property Damage By Booking Professional Squirrel Controllers in London
Though squirrels are not known to carry dangerous diseases and infections, they can be persistent in gnawing through almost everything in their way. Letting a mild-level squirrel infestation grow into a serious problem means severe property damage including:
- Damage of insulation and wood elements in the attic area.
- Torn wires
- Ruined furniture
- Ceiling and wall damage – they often chew holes and leave urine stains
- Dropping in the infested area, as well as other signs in the yard.

Our Squirrel Pest Control in Details
The Two Common Squirrel Species in the UK
As their names can tell, there’s a huge difference in the colour of their fur. Red and grey are very different from one another and it’s would be hard to make a mistake. However, there are a couple more differences between the two species.
Red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris)
Grey squirrel(Sciurus carolinensis)
|The red squirrels' fur colour can range from red or light or dark brown to almost black, and have white on their stomachs.||The grey squirrels can have rusty-brown spots and some white touches, here or there. They are not entirely gray.|
|Their long ear tufts and big fluffy tails are key features for the red squirrel.||The grey squirrel has a smaller tail and ear tuffs, but is larger in size than the red squirrel.|
|The red squirrel produces two litters, between 3 or 4 young ones.||The grey squirrel can produce one or two litters but the new generation can vary from one to five.|
|Can live up to six years in the wild.||The females can live up to six years, but the male only live up to 3 years.|
|The red squirrel in the UK is protected under the Wildlife and Conversation Act 1981.||The grey squirrel is considered pest in the UK and is not protected by the law.|

I would have been nice if the world worked in a way that if you once get bed bugs and get rid of them they never reappear, but it doesn't. I've had to call for bed bug treatment two times in the last five years and have trusted Panther Pest Control both times. They get the job done without any hassle, plus the prices are budget-friendly. I hope I never have to use them again, but totally recommend them to people in need of adequate pest control treatment in the London area.

Rang the phone, got a quote and booked right away. In two days the flat was already treated for bed bugs and a second visit was scheduled. Quick and professional guys! Loved using Panther Pest Control and strongly recommend them. The price was ok, the exterminators were thorough and gave me some advice. Hopefully I won't have to use them again though.

We’ve never had this many squirrels in the yard before. Maybe one or two have been spotted the previous spring but this year the population has increased a lot! We are afraid of disease transmission and I had to call the exterminators. I’m glad no squirrel were killed. Instead, they were safely trapped and removed from the property.

When my husband and I returned from the holiday in Eastern Europe everything was fine until our bodies got covered in red itchy marks. There were bed bugs all over the apartment. Luckily, the company had a free slot for bed bug treatment on the very same day. We had to spend the night on the bed to lure the bed bugs out and they were fully exterminated by the pesticide.
