Squirrels are larger rodents with large bushy tails that love walnuts and other nuts and seeds. Squirrels will cause damage to your garage, shed, or other areas in order to find a place to nest or to hide their food stores. Squirrels can also be a nuisance in other ways as well. They can carry fleas and ticks to your yard that can infest your pets or your home. If you have a problem with squirrels, there are a few things you can do. Read on for helpful information to help you keep squirrels out of your yard.

Get Rid Of Bird Feeders

Bird feeders may be luring squirrels to your yard. It's free food that is easy to eat and store. They simply climb a pole and take what they can carry in their cheeks. If you have bird feeders in your yard, you should remove them in order to keep squirrels away and prevent them from being lured in. If you love birds, you should either get a bird feeder that doesn't allow squirrels on it or put birdhouses in your yard instead of trying to feed the birds.

Remove Nut Trees

Nut trees in your yard are going to attract squirrels to your yard. They will take those nuts from the ground and from the trees and bury them in your yard, or they will bury them in your garden beds or in your mulch all around your yard. They will even take their stash of nuts and store them in your shed or your garage. These pests will take what they can get and store them where they can so they have them throughout winter. If you have these types of trees, you may want to consider removing them from your yard if you can.

Set Out A Decoy

You can set up a decoy in your yard of an owl or a hawk with some movement to help keep these pests away. Move the decoy around your yard from time to time to scare squirrels away. Use multiple decoys if you have a large yard to get rid of these pests and keep them away.

If you have an issue with squirrels, you should consider hiring a pest control company to help you get rid of these pests to keep them out of your yard. For more information about pest control and squirrel removal services, contact a local business.

About Me
Safe Pest Control Services

Welcome to my website. My name is Trina. I live in the country with my husband, our two children, two dogs, and three cats. I love country living with one exception... the pests! I am referring to wasps, stink bugs, and rodents. I don’t know why they don’t stay out in the woods, but they don’t. They seem to love our house. I was six months pregnant with our second child when we broke down and called a pest control service. The gentleman came out to talk to us, and I had many concerns. I was pregnant, we had a small child and our pets. The professional spent a great deal of time with us patiently explaining about the products they use in and around homes. I would like to share what we learned, and why we now have pest control service for our home.
