Squirrel Removal & Repair

Squirrel Removal & Repair Service

Do you hear running and jumping noises in your attic or between your walls? You might have a squirrel problem! Upstate New York is home to three species of squirrels. They are all VERY different and require specialized processes and techniques to remove them from your property and repair the mess they’ve made.

Our Approach To Squirrel Removal & Repairs

Our squirrel removal service begins with an initial inspection. This step helps us identify which squirrel species we are dealing with (gray, red, or flying) so we can determine an appropriate course of action for removal and repair. Learn more about our service:

1. Species Identification

First things first, we’ll examine any droppings, look at the size and location of any holes, and explore the surrounding trees and habitat to determine the squirrel species.

2. Squirrel Trapping

We’ll set species-specific equipment around your home. More often than not, these will be placed on your roof so we can maximize the effectiveness of our results. As a result, our pricing depends on the construction of your home and how high/steep your roof is. 

3. Repair & Seal Work

We’ll perform any necessary repair and seal work to protect your home over the long-run. This service includes sealing your ridge vents, soffits, dormers, and gable vents. One of our favorite exclusion products is PEST-BLOK, an extremely effective deterrent.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Type Of Squirrels Can You Remove From My Home?

Gray Squirrels: the most common type of squirrel that everyone sees running around. They can chew holes the size of softballs into your fascia and soffits creating havoc anywhere they go.

Red Squirrels: more common in the countryside, these small reddish colored squirrels often enter low and work their way up the walls. Red squirrels are notorious for storing black walnuts in the homes they reside in as well as pine cones. If you find a stockpile of either of these, you are most likely dealing with red squirrels.

Flying Squirrels: these cute little guys are a bit bigger than a chipmunk. Homeowners often misidentify them as baby gray squirrels. These squirrels do not fly. Instead, they have a flap of skin that when outstretched lets them glide from tree top to tree top. Nocturnal by nature, you usually will hear them at night.

How Quickly Can You Resolve My Squirrel Problem?

We know how frustrating dealing with squirrels can be! That’s why we make a concentrated effort to resolve most squirrel issues in as little as 5-7 days. Occasionally, removing squirrels from your home can take up to 10-12 days.

"I agree that 5 stars is hardly enough to rate this company. Jake and Matt are very professional. They called me back almost immediately, made an appointment for the next day. They came to do the work to remove the mice. They plugged up the entry ways, set traps and came back in 2 days to collect the dead mice. . . . They are very reasonably priced and extremely easy and pleasant to work with!"

- Ruth Smith


"Although others have said "5 Stars is not enough" after working with Upstate Wildlife Control, there must be a reason we all say it. Jake & Matt deserve a 10-star review. As a business owner myself, I can appreciate their time, expertise and pride in a job well done. On a personal note, they were outstanding professionals and went above and beyond to resolve this animal problem at our home. Thank You !!!"
