Manchester Pest Control Squirrels In your Property We WILL Help

A straight forward approach to removing Squirrels from your Property

A small furry visitor carrying fleas and ticks, and likely to destroy a property inside and out with their extensive chewing? Squirrels may be charming but best viewed from afar and not in built up areas of Stockport, Manchester and Cheshire!

Luckily Manchester Pest Control offers a safe and effective squirrel control service throughout the area, to both residential and commercial properties. Our methods do not cause any unnecessary suffering to the animal and once trapped, they will be taken away from the problem area. Furthermore we offer:

  • A flexible service, available seven days a week including common holiday periods
  • A guarantee – our service will resolve your squirrel problem!

Are Squirrels really that bad, compared to other vermin?

Whilst UK native red squirrels are threatened as a species, when squirrels are causing problems its most likely a grey squirrel which were introduced to the UK from America for the purposes of sport and food! During mild weather they’re happy in tree-dense areas such as parks but as weather gets colder they quickly seek warmer places to nest.  They’ve been driven to built up populated areas for so long now they can no longer be frightened away or have a fear of human beings. Squirrels are very territorial so if they have claimed your loft or garage they will guard it with a fierce determination, which can prove challenging from a pest control point of view. You are likely to hear a squirrel in the property before you see it as they are noisy critters, and you may start to notice teeth marks in basements or lofts.  Eventually you will see it going in and out frequently on one of its many food runs.  Simply blocking the hole to prevent re-entry doesn’t work and they tend to do more damage making new entry points.

To summarise, once a squirrel has claimed your home, it will:

  • Cause damage gnawing on woodwork and other surfaces, especially fascias and rafters
  • Carry fleas and ticks into the property which can then get into soft furnishings causing further problems for humans and family pets
  • Chew electrical cables and pipes creating various hazards that ultimately can cause big safety issues.
  • Be difficult to move on without specialist help from experienced pest controllers like Manchester Pest control

How do Manchester Pest Control tackle a squirrel problem?

Contacting us as soon as you notice or suspect you have a problem is best rather than waiting until damage or noise is extensive – the earlier we can deploy our methods before the squirrel gets too settled, the better!

  1. A thorough inspection will take place by a trained, experienced professional. They will search the full property to get a comprehensive overview of the squirrels behaviour and routes in and out.
  2. Specialist traps and poisons will be deploy in a structured manner, ensuring safety for humans but certain to catch the attention of the rodent, trapping it instantly.
  3. All traps and contents will be fully and carefully removed, and disposed of according to pest control regulations, without causing suffering to the animal.
  4. Our technician will re-check the property to ensure procedures have been effective and offer advice and assistance with prevention a reoccurrence.

Treatment Details on Common Pests

As an overview, we provide some basic information on common pests, showing you how we operate with the best services on the market:

3 step rat and mouse pest control

  • On our first visit we make a full risk assessment of the premises to know precisely where the rats and mice are gaining entry to the property.
  • Comprehensive treatment is then applied to the property to efficiently eliminate the infestation
  • This is followed by a full pest-proofing of the premises to prevent further infestation (Which will incur  a extra cost)

4 step cockroach pest control

  • We initially undertake a full risk assessment and survey of the property to assess what factors are contributing to the cockroach infestation, locating their source and noting their species.
  • For large infestations we may use a spray treatment initially to reduce the population
  • The long term solution uses insecticide gel baits which the cockroaches eat, killing off the entire colony over time.
  • Finally, we lay glue traps to capture cockroaches, which help us monitor the efficacy of the long term treatment.

3 step moth pest control

  • Our first step applies a residual based insecticide on all carpets and soft furnishings which kill the moths on contact.
  • Fumigation treatment is the applied to the affected areas, which draw out the moths from their shelters within the property, and ultimately kills them.
  • Going forward, we advise clients not to vacuum or clean the carpets and furnishing affected for the following two weeks, ensuring that the insecticide remains in place to kill remaining moths and moth larvae.

4 step ant pest control

  • We begin with a complete risk assessment and survey of the property, determining the source of ant infestation and the contributing factors.
  • A residual based insecticide spray to treat all the affected areas internally and externally is applied. Common areas include patio gardens and window frames – this will kill all ants on contact.
  • Going forward we encourage clients not to clean the surfaces with treatment, so that the insecticide is more effective, killing any further ants that come into contact with it.
  • Remaining ants are killed by the ant control baits we use, with pharoe ants bringing the poison back to their nests.

5 step bed bugs pest control

  • A visual survey of the property is needed first to see the level of the infestation and how widely it has spread across the property.
  • Clients are then informed and advised on the needed preparation to take.
  • All affected areas are applied with a residual based insecticide spray. The spray kills bed bugs on contact, and prevents the growth of their eggs.
  • We advise refraining from housework, not cleaning the carpets and furnishings for the following two weeks, allowing the insecticide to kill further bed bugs.
  • The same treatment is repeated after two weeks.

Environmental pest management
Have you ever ignored something that seemed unimportant at the time, only for it to come back and haunt you at a later date?
A leaky tap that becomes a plumbing nightmare is one thing, but failing to protect your property from invasion by pests such as rodents, insects, and birds can soon lead to a massive infestation. And if you’re running a business, the damage to your reputation may be irreparable. Pests are carriers of diseases, some of which can be fatal to people whether it’s from being bitten, inhaling viral spores, or eating food contaminated by urine, faeces or saliva. They can also do significant damage to property, requiring huge financial outlay to put right.
Over the years at Manchester Pest Control, we’ve dealt with many serious infestations in business premises throughout Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire. Often, we are only called on once an infestation has taken hold, when just a few simple precautions might have prevented it from happening to begin with.
Manchester Pest Control are not just experts at eliminating pests – we also provide a tailored environmental pest control service designed to either keep your property pest free in the first place, or prevent an infestation reoccurring once it has been cleared out.
Here’s what we can do:
• We’ll assess your premises and the surrounding grounds for factors that might attract pests. It could be something to do with the way in which business waste, discarded food and other rubbish is stored, or it might be that parts of your grounds are overgrown with weeds and other dense vegetation that pests can seek cover or nest in.
• If we are conducting an assessment after an infestation has already occurred, we will look at areas of potential contamination, where nests, droppings and other signs of pest activity can be found. If these are not attended to, they will pose a continuing threat to your health and that of your workforce and customers. Lingering odours may also attract more pests back onto your property.
• We can perform a ‘deep clean’ of those areas where contamination has occurred, providing a thorough cleansing of floors and surfaces tainted by urine or faecal matter. We can remove waste that is either contaminated or which might attract unwanted visitors. We will clean tainted furniture items and remove items damaged beyond repair. We will clear out the remains of nests and animal/bird/insect corpses.
• In addition, if there are patches of overgrown and tangled shrubs and weeds on your land, Manchester Pest Control can cut these back or remove them altogether, trimming low-hanging trees, and making appropriate use of herbicides that are not damaging to the wider environment. The absence of any protective cover will discourage pests and keep them at a good distance.
If you want your workplace environment to be free of pests, give Manchester Pest Control a call on 0161 448 1782 and an experienced technician will be round as soon as possible, whether it’s to tackle an infestation, or prevent one from happening altogether. This service is available to clients in the Manchester, Stockport and wider Cheshire

Do It yourself -VS- Professional Treatment

Often Copied, never matched!

DIY pest control – a disaster waiting to happen?

At Manchester Pest Control we know how easy it is, that temptation to cut costs by fixing a problem yourself. Or perhaps you used a professional in the past (in pest control or some other area) and things didn’t work out – you didn’t get the service you wanted or it cost you a lot more than you bargained for. And it’s so easy to just walk into a shop nowadays and be able to choose from a range of off-the-shelf products that might well cost a fifth of what you’d pay a pest control business to do the work. So why not DIY, you may ask yourself? Here’s why…

Knowing the pitfalls

Regular readers of the Manchester Pest Control blog will already have an idea of some of the problems that face home or business owners in the Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire areas who want to deal with an infestation themselves, whether it’s cockroaches, rats, bed bugs or squirrels, to name but a few of the possible culprits. There are legal implications that many people won’t be aware of that could land them in hot water, and then there are possible health issues that may arise either from direct contact with the invading pest (including disposal of the body) or its droppings and urine.

But sometimes, the biggest danger can come from not knowing enough about the pest you are dealing with, and the effectiveness of the solution you are applying. For instance, any chemicals you might be handling are likely to be highly toxic and could be harmful if touched or inhaled – in fact, there are some DIY pest control products you shouldn’t even use inside your home because they can be harmful to you, your family and pets if used in an enclosed space or if they get into your home’s water supply. Please also think of neighbours and visitors if you are leaving poison around the place both inside and outside your property and they don’t know it’s there.

And when all’s said and done, even if you’ve managed to avoid breaking the law or making yourself and others ill in the process, the biggest kick in the teeth comes when you find that the solution you’ve spent time and money on … doesn’t work! So now you’re raced with the decision: do you go back to the shop, buy something else and see if that works, or do you contact Manchester Pest Control?

The reason why professionals have the edge

We wouldn’t expect you to know everything there is to know about the pests infesting your home, but at Manchester Pest Control, it’s our business to know – we deal with these sorts of issues year in, year out. We have well over a decade of accumulated knowledge and experience, and that’s why we know that many shop-bought pest solutions are often only temporary, assuming they even work at all. By the time customers come to us, some have already spent a large amount of money on DIY products that just haven’t delivered. ‘We followed the instructions on the label,’ they’ll say, ‘but it had no effect whatsoever!’

Let’s consider some of the reasons. Sometimes, homeowners misdiagnose the kind of pest they are dealing with – such as confusing bed bugs with fleas. And then there are the different stages of a creature’s life-cycle to consider – again, using the example of insects, it might be that the chemicals you are using have an effect on adults but not on the eggs they have laid. And if you’ve been trying to tackle a rat or mouse infestation, you might not have considered that they are carriers of ticks, fleas and other parasites which may then also pose a problem within your home.

Sometimes the problem is just too big for you to deal with on your own, and we do understand how frustrating that must be. You may find yourself fighting a losing battle if you live in a block of flats where an infestation is widespread amongst neighbouring flats, or if you own a house next door to someone with untidy habits who you feel is to blame for your troubles. There are wider considerations for business owners, who should not attempt DIY pesticide solutions on their business premises unless they hold a certificate that sanctions them to do so.

Value for money in the long term

To anyone considering or being driven mad by ineffective DIY solutions in the Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire region, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Save yourself a whole load of time, worry and inconvenience and contact Manchester Pest Control today – we’ll get straight to the heart of the problem, delivering immediate and long-term results. You take a rest and we’ll do it ourselves!

Pest control for squirrels, and the damage that can happen


Public opinion on squirrels is divided: some people love to see these agile little performers leaping nimbly from tree to tree or using their cunning to defeat the seemingly squirrel-proof bird feeder; to other people, there’s little distinction between squirrels and rats, apart from the bushy tails! And while rats tend to be more active at night which means that they are less often spotted despite their large numbers, squirrels are more active during the daytime which means you may be more aware of their activity in your area.


Squirrels can also be quite tame, taking food offered to them directly by human hand, although as Manchester Pest Control will outline for you in this blog, there can be associated health risks as with any outdoor animal. And you may want to think twice before getting too friendly with these little mischief makers in case they decide to set up home under your roof with disastrous consequences!


Grey vs Red – some facts


The grey squirrel has become a highly visible sight in the UK since it first found its way to our shores only within the last 150 years. Initially thought of as exotic by the Victorians, the grey squirrel has now become so widespread that it has significantly driven down the numbers of native red squirrels. Manchester Pest Control has a bit of a soft spot for the poor red squirrel, which is a smaller, prettier looking, shier sort of creature that now only survives in small pockets in the north of England, with 75% of the population in Scotland where the greys are less prevalent. In addition to competing more successfully for available food stocks (seeds, buds and insects) grey squirrels carry a virus which they are immune to but which can be deadly for the reds.


The red squirrel is protected by law and it is a criminal act to kill, capture, or cause injury to a red squirrel, or disturb and destroy places where they breed or rest. Grey squirrels are not afforded the same degree of protection in this country due to their far greater numbers, although there are strict rules about holding them in captivity without a special licence, unless the captive grey is being transported directly to a vet to be put down humanely. Releasing captured grey squirrels back into the wild is also an offence without an appropriate licence to do so.


Squirrels and Us


The virus that grey squirrels carry is not known to be harmful to humans, although it is recommended that if you come into contact with a squirrel you should wash your hands afterwards. Exposure to squirrel urine and faeces may cause salmonella poisoning if accidentally consumed. Squirrels can also administer a nasty bite, so think twice before feeding even the tamest seeming of them. In fact, Manchester Pest Control strongly advise that you get a tetanus jab if bitten by a squirrel. And like many outdoor animals, squirrels can carry parasites in their fur, such as fleas and ticks, which you don’t want to get bitten by either!


The risk of exposure to these various health hazards is only heightened by close proximity to squirrels that comes when they invade our homes. This is accompanied by even greater risks, as we’ll now see…


Squirrels and Our Homes


All homes in the Manchester, Stockport and Cheshire areas are equally at risk from squirrel infestation – if they find somewhere they like the look of during a cold spell or when searching out a potential nesting site away from predators, these bushy-tailed pests are experts at breaking and entering. We’ve already mentioned being bitten by squirrels, but did you know that the teeth of a squirrel continue to grow throughout their entire life? These sharp front teeth could grow ridiculously out of proportion were it not for the squirrel’s constant compulsion to chew and gnaw, and this includes eating their way into your roof!


If a squirrel finds a weak spot on your roof, they will exploit it to gain access. This is of course assuming that there isn’t already a hole big enough for them to easily get in and out of in the first place, so watch out for loose and fallen roof tiles and any signs of damage following a storm, or just general wear and tear over the years. If a squirrel spots the weakness first, they can be inside your loft space in a shot, and will continue to nibble away at vital roof beams, insulation materials, electricity cables – anything they come across, including items and heirlooms you have stored away for safe keeping.


It has not been unknown for a fire to start after a squirrel has chewed through electrical wiring, so we should add arson to the list of potential crimes these pests can exact on your property. The presence of a nest can only guarantee a whole load of trouble for you and your home once the baby squirrels are born and start to explore their immediate environment.


Manchester Pest Control, coming to your rescue


You may be tempted to deal with a squirrel infestation yourself, but we would urge you to reconsider. As we’ve already noted, there are legal considerations that you must abide by, but there are also a variety of practical considerations. For instance, if you attempt to block off the entry point while an adult grey squirrel is away, it will go to great efforts to get back to its young in the nest and this could result in further damage to your property. The dependent young will also die if separated from their parents, so it is important for you to consider how you would feel about causing this to happen, and then having to dispose of the bodies.


Manchester Pest Control can take the worry away from you and your family. We can run a thorough check for the presence of a nest in your roof space before any attempt is made to seal the point of entry; we can ensure that any captured grey squirrels are taken away and disposed of humanely; and we can provide you with sound advice and assistance on rodent proofing to ensure that you do not experience a repeat of the problem. If you live in Manchester, Stockport or Cheshire, and are concerned about what squirrels may be doing to your home, be sure to contact Manchester Pest Control – we’re here to help.
