I caught these three at the same time, coming out of a broken pipe.

Customer Squirrel Email: Criter trappers like you onlyu want to make a buck never help people and just want to kill squirrels a rehabber like me saves them. regards lessie

My Answer: Lessie, Thank you for the very well thought-out response. You are right, critter trapping companies are often very inhumane to squirrels, and the public often does go with the low cost solution. It's my hope that people searching for information about raccoons or squirrels in attics will find my site first and at least be informed of their options before hiring a critter trapper. I'm trying to get the squirrel information out there as well as I can. Do you know of any other rehabbers who you can spread the word to? I think the best thing would be if rehabbers with websites could read about this information of mine so that people can find it more commonly. Do you have a website? I just don't think the issue of abandoned animals in attics is spread well enough, almost like it's swept under the rug or people just don't know. David

Probably the most common human/wildlife conflict nationwide is the one between people and squirrels. The Eastern Gray Squirrel is an agile and common suburban and urban animal, and it loves to chew and explore. They frequently raid the birdfeeder, but this isn't a big problem. The real problem is that squirrels commonly seek out places in which to live, and this commonly includes human dwellings - attics, crawl spaces, walls, chimneys, and more. They chew and often cause damage inside buildings, to wood and electrical wires. The only way to permanently solve a squirrel problem is to find out how the rodents are gaining access to the inside of the building, and fix those openings, after the animals have been trapped and removed, of course. One-way exclusion devices also work very well for squirrel problems in buildings. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Squirrels page.
