Facts about the pest

The Grey Squirrel – Sciurus carolinensis

After its deliberate introduction to the UK from North America in 1876, the grey squirrel has all but pushed our native Red Squirrel to the brink of extinction.

The Red and Grey Squirrel can be mistaken in winter months as the Red Squirrel will show some grey on its back. However the Red Squirrel is protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.

Characteristics

Average adult weight is around 480 grams with a body height of 26cm and a tail length averaging 20cm. Grey Squirrels are true rodents having the classic two front incisors growing throughout its life and a diastema (gap where other mammals have canines and pre-molars).

Being a urban resident it is not uncommon to see them wherever houses are close to trees, parks and woodland. Noises in the loft and cavities can be confused with rats and mice especially in the winter months as they look for warmer opportunities to make their nests (dreys). Causing untold damage to electrical cables leading to fires the cost of eradication and proofing soon justifies the expense.

Lifecycle

With two breeding seasons a year the first young are born between February and March after a pregnancy lasting just short of 7 weeks. The young are then weaned at 9 weeks, the second litter arriving between August and September. Litter sizes can range from one to six. The young are then capable of breeding themselves between six and eight months of age. The average lifespan is six years however in captivity they are capable of living up to 20 years.

  • Excellent service.

    After mice / rats chewed through wiring in loft of our 1600 Cottage, Terry (and Max) came to the rescue. Did a thorough survey. Laid traps. Then did a complete clean of loft to remove droppings etc after re-wiring and before loft was re-boarded. Would definitely recommend.

  • Highly recommend his service.

    Terry responded to my request for a visit extremely promptly. His manner was very courteous and reassuring. He was very efficient with his assessment of the mice problem which had affected my loft-he even destroyed a wasps nest that he spotted for no extra charge. His after service is particularly reassuring with 3 visits in total and good advice and remedies for any future possible invasions.
