Grey Squirrel Facts
Squirrel Control

The grey squirrel breeds around February/March and occasionally again in June/July. Squirrels have 1 - 3 litters a year producing between 1 - 7 young per litter. In the wild less than 1% of squirrels live for more than 6 years but they have been known to live to 8 or 9 years.

Grey Squirrels are most common in deciduous and mixed woodlands, they are also found in hedgerows, banking, gardens, trees and farms. Dreys (nests) are compact and sphere-shaped. 30-60cm in diameter and surrounded by twigs, dry leaves and grass inside. Squirrels feed on acorns, tree shoots, flowers, nuts, fruits, roots and cereals. Food is eaten at ground level. A squirrels range covers 2-10 hectares and they bury spare food 2-5cm below the soil or in tree hollows.

Grey Squirrel Control

Grey Squirrels can nest in Lofts, wall cavities, and the void in-between false walls, by gnawing they can damage tree bark and the fabric of buildings.

If grey squirrels are infesting your roof space, they can be denied access by sealing up access routes. However, you must ensure that there are no young or adult squirrels in your loft space before carrying out any proofing work.
