If you were to simply watch a squirrel you will quickly realise how free spirited these little devils are. They will very happily scamper around your garden jumping from one branch to the next as they master acrobatic moves without a single step wrong. Although they live a care free lifestyle they can unfortunately be a nuisance to humans. Of all the species those most common are the grey squirrel, the red squirrel, the fox squirrel and also the flying squirrel. They typically have a bushy tail and can grow up to fifty centre metres in length.
Tree squirrels will usually nest in wooded areas but as humans continue to expand into these areas, squirrels are forced to look for alternative places to nest and that unfortunately can include nesting inside buildings. The most frequent place for them to nest is inside garages and lofts where they will reach hard to get to areas by chewing holes so that they can store their food. You will probably be very aware that you have an infestation of squirrels because their activity is very loud and anyone within a close proximity can usually hear them. If this sounds like your home contact pest control Dover today to remove these safely.
These squirrels are most active first thing in the morning and also in the afternoon as they spend all their time in the search for food and finding places to store it. Their diet will normally consist of nuts, leaves, fruit, insects and bark. They will collect food even if it is not needed as this will be stored for winter keeping.
Many young squirrels are born during the early spring and summer periods, with tree squirrels bearing two litters in a year whereas flying squirrels will only give birth once a year. The litter can vary and can be anywhere between three and eight squirrels and is highly dependent on the species.
