Squirrel Removal in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati

January 27th, 2018

Spidey Squirrels are invading homes in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati!!!

Did you Know that squirrels are a lot like Spiderman?  No, they don’t wear red tights and no they can’t shoot spider webs, but they can maneuver a building a lot like Spiderman. Recently I had an encounter with “Spidey Squirrel” at a client’s house in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I was at the client’s house looking for sign of squirrel entry.  I found a hole in an eave of the house so I made my way towards the hole. Suddenly a squirrel shot out of the hole missing my face by a few inches.  The squirrel then leaped two stories from the roof to the ground. When I climbed down off the roof I made my way to the back of the house and wouldn’t you know it, there was Spidey Squirrel.  The squirrel then scampered back to the house and climbed right up the brick towards the roof just like he was Spiderman.

I am often asked by new clients, “If I cut down the tree next to my house, will that prevent squirrels from getting into my house?”.  Although it could help a little, the answer is “No”. In my experience (like my encounter with Spidey Squirrel), squirrels in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati will climb up almost any surface to access a home’s attic, soffits, and chimney. The best option to stop a squirrel from entering your home is not to cut down the beloved family tree.  It is to remove the squirrel.  If trapping a nuisance squirrel is not a job you are interested and/or capable of taking on, don’t worry, Tri-State Wildlife Management has been performing squirrel removal in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati for over 15 years.  Our team will safely and humanly handle your squirrel removal needs. We are a full-service company and specialize in removing wildlife from your property, as well as making proper repairs to restore and protect your property.

Moral of the story is; if you have a tree next to your house that you like, don’t cut it down because you think it will keep squirrels away from your roof line.  Let Spidey Squirrel be a prime example, that if a squirrel has fidelity to your home the best way to stop them is to hire a nuisance wildlife control operator that specializes in squirrel removal.  If you are in the Northern Kentucky, Greater Cincinnati area, Tri-State Wildlife Management is your company for all of your wildlife removal needs.  Call us at (859)635-0037.

Squirrel on Roof

Wildlife Removal Independence, KY: The weather has certainly turned much colder this week, so wild animals in Independence, KY and other neighborhoods in the greater Cincinnati area are taking advantage of the warmth that attics of homes and businesses offer. The main 3 culprits of attic-dwelling wildlife include raccoons, squirrels, and bats.

Raccoons are unpleasant house “guests”, since they not only tear apart your home to seek entry, but also they create smelly, unsanitary latrines in your attic insulation. Squirrels are also bad house “guests”, as they will chew entryways and gnaw on EVERYTHING in your attic, including rafters and electrical wires! Of course this is a major hazard, as chewed rafters can weaken the entire structure and chewed electrical wires can start a fire. If you have bats in your attic, you may not sense their presence until the spring, as they’re beginning to hibernate, but they also create unsanitary latrines and and can carry rabies, both important reasons to keep them out of your house. Squirrels and raccoons will stay active throughout the winter, the only exception being if there is a long bout of extreme weather.

All three of these wild animals are prevalent in Independence, KY as well as the rest of Northern Kentucky, Cincinnati, and Southeast Indiana. As Independence grows in human population, more neighborhoods and homes are built, while less natural habitat is available to wildlife. It’s a common misconception that wild animals suffer from neighborhood developments, while the truth is that houses and other man-made structures are much more comfortable habitats for wildlife. Of course, this is to the displeasure of the unfortunate businesses and homeowners who happen to be targeted by wildlife.  Bats, squirrels, and raccoons all take advantage of these man-made structures, especially during the colder months. They are much more comfortable spending their time in warm attic insulation as opposed to den or roost sites in nature.

There are measures that businesses and homeowners in Independence, KY can take to deter wildlife from seeking refuge in their building or home. First, habitat modification, such as keeping landscaping tidy, trees trimmed, and garbage cans and pet food inside can go a long way in keeping wildlife disinterested in your home. Unfortunately, though, with wildlife, there are never any guarantees. You may do everything right, and raccoons, squirrels, and bats may still target your home. Another measure businesses and homeowners can take to try and prevent wildlife entry is to have a wildlife home inspection.

Tri-State Wildlife Management offers thorough, affordable home inspections. You may choose to do this as a precautionary measure, or you may already suspect something has already taken up residence in your attic or home. Tri-State Wildlife Management’s technician / carpenter who performs the inspection, will identify any wildlife entries as well as weak, vulnerable areas that could become future entries. It may seem excessive to a business or homeowner that the vulnerable areas be identified, but it is actually very important; raccoons, squirrels, and bats will all attempt, usually successfully, to reenter a home even after their entry is repaired.

Once an inspection is performed on your home, Tri-State Wildlife Management will be able to tell you whether your home, as of the date of the inspection, is low risk for wildlife entry, or if there is evidence of wildlife entry or vulnerable areas. If there is evidence of wildlife entry, TSWM will suggest a removal and exclusion plan suited to fit your individual needs. As mentioned previously, wildlife will cause damage to your home once excluded if they are not removed from the area, so an exclusion only solution is really no solution at all. TSWM has a carpenter on staff that will repair areas on your home that are being used as entry points, and areas that may be susceptible to future wildlife entry. TSWM only uses wildlife grade construction materials to further deter wildlife from reentering your home. In addition, TSWM offers a variety of wildlife grade chimney caps and covers to prevent wildlife intrusion. Another common wildlife service offered by Tri-State Wildlife Management is attic clean-ups, which are usually performed when an attic has significant raccoon or bat latrines.

TSWM prides itself in being a professional, quality, full service company that will take care of you from the first phone call until your wildlife problem is solved. Call today to schedule your affordable home inspection.

Tri-State Wildlife Management is fully licensed and insured, and we stand behind all our work .
