Metro Atlanta Squirrel Removal and Exclusion

Rid-A-Critter provides squirrel removal and squirrel-proofing in Atlanta and the Metro Area, including Conyers, Kennesaw, Marietta, McDonough, Newnan, Stockbridge.

The two squirrel species that most commonly get into attics and need to be removed from homes in Metro Atlanta and all of Georgia are the Eastern gray squirrel (which we'll talk about on this page), and the flying squirrel.

If you're not sure which squirrels are living in the attic of your home or building, please feel free to give us a call. We'll be happy to help you identify "your" squirrels, and we'll provide a plan to keep squirrels and other nuisance wildlife and rodent pests out of your attic.

Gray squirrels are usually grayish in color, but there's a lot of color variation. We've encountered "gray" squirrels ranging in color from jet black to albino, along with a lot of reddish-brown ones. In nature, they live mainly in hollow trees; but they're even happier to find a nice, warm, dry attic to live in, especially during the cooler months.

The need for squirrel removal in Atlanta usually peaks during the late fall or early winter; but squirrels start looking for their winter homes long before the weather gets cool. Squirrels become highly motivated to get into houses, by any means necessary, in the late summer through the early fall. That's the time of year when squirrel-removal companies get busy.

In addition to trapping and removing existing squirrels, permanent squirrel control also requires sealing up the gaps in the house or building to prevent new squirrels from getting in. We call this "squirrel exclusion" or "squirrel-proofing." We make your home or building off-limits to squirrels and other nuisance wildlife. There's no point in removing squirrels from a house if you're not going to seal up all the gaps to keep the squirrels out of the attic.

Squirrel Damage

Like all rodents, squirrels like to gnaw. They gnaw to eat, they gnaw to make holes to get into or out of places, and they gnaw for the sheer joy of gnawing. They also gnaw to keep their teeth sharp and in good shape.

When squirrels get into houses and other buildings, they gnaw on things like PVC pipe, HVAC ducts, personal belongings stored in the attic, and worst of all, electrical wiring. Squirrels and other rodents cause many thousands of home fires every year when they chew on live electrical wires.

Another serious kind of damage that squirrels do is gnawing at flexible heating and air-conditioning ducts in the attic. If they manage to get inside the ducts, the entire duct system will have to be inspected and cleaned, and parts of it may have to be repaired or replaced.

Squirrel Removal and Exclusion in Atlanta

The only permanent solution to a squirrel problem is to humanely remove them, relocate them, and seal up the gaps in the house to keep squirrels and other nuisance animals out of the attic. That's what we do, and we do it best. We use safe, humane, non-chemical squirrel-control methods to remove the squirrels from your home or commercial building and make it squirrel-proof. We also back our work with the best warranty in the business.

If you live in or around Metro Atlanta and have a problem with squirrels or other wildlife or rodent pests living in the attic, please call us for an on-site inspection and consultation. We look forward to hearing from you. In the meantime, please have a look at some random pictures of squirrel-removal and squirrel-proofing jobs we've done over the years.
