How to get rid of squirrels:
Make outside areas uninviting (3,000-4,000 square feet): The Yard Gard and Solar Yard Gard are electronic ultrasonic repellents that use sounds out of the range of human hearing to irritate pest animals, repelling them from your property. The squirrels are not harmed by the sound, but encouraged to seek more peaceful areas. Because the sound waves are nearly silent to the human ear, these products can be used within residential areas. With specific pest animal settings, and continuous or motion sensor operation modes, these devices are effective, low maintenance products. Since squirrels are considered a member of the rodent family, you can effectively deter them using the “Rodents/Bats” setting found on the units’ frequency dials.
Prevent squirrels from settling down inside your home. Sometimes pest squirrels find their way into homes, causing noise, messes, & destruction that could otherwise be prevented with the Transonic PRO. The Transonic PRO is an electronic device suitable for indoor & semi-enclosed areas, covering up to 3,500 sq. ft. per unit. Using a combination of irritating ultrasonic sounds (frequencies humans cannot perceive) & audible sounds (sounds within the range of human hearing), squirrels are effectively chased out of areas you want to protect, such as the attic, basement, garage, shed, & more. In order to deter pest squirrels, we typically suggest adjusting the unit settings to Sound Pattern “C” & Sound Volume “Loud.”
Target other senses with taste & scent deterrents. Nature’s Defense All-Purpose Animal Repellent effectively rids outdoor areas of over 20 kinds of pests, including squirrels. This scent & taste aversion product is made with all-natural, organic ingredients that create a powerful scent barrier to repel pests. While this deterrent targets multiple animals, it is harmless to people, pets, & plants. Unlike other granule repellents, this product does not contain blood, urine or rotten egg, so it is safe to spread around your lawn to get rid of pesky squirrels.
Keeping squirrels out of your property is essential to making sure your family, your pets, & the squirrels themselves stay safe. Squirrel droppings may pose the risk of salmonella to anyone coming into contact with it. Additionally, squirrels are commonly infested with ticks & fleas. Tickscarry the danger of tick fever & Lyme Disease, which can spread on your land as well as your household pets. Fleas can also be carried into your home by squirrels & once your home is infested, it is incredibly difficult counteract, as these bugs nest in carpets, soft furnishings & furniture.
Before installing our products, please clean all infested areas thoroughly & safely to get rid of squirrel droppings & evidence of nesting (such as in trees & insulation – squirrel mothers will relocate babies if they are in an uncomfortable environment). Once squirrels establish a home, it can be very difficult to get rid of them without taking the necessary steps to make your property as uninviting to them as possible. Removing food sources temporarily, such as bird seed in non-squirrel proof feeders, may also help to speed up the process. Feeding squirrels directly with squirrel feeders, peanuts, corn must be stopped immediately if squirrels aren’t welcome.
