Experienced Squirrel Removal Contractor in Prosper, TX
It is an annual rite of passage in the wild. Leaves fall from trees exposing the large nests meticulously built by squirrels that need to find more secure shelter during winter. Exposed squirrel nests offer inviting targets for predators that have trouble finding food when vegetation dies and many animal species hibernate. What does all this mean for Prosper, Texas homeowners?
It means their homes are rip targets for squirrel infestations.

The High Cost of Squirrels in the Attic
Squirrels appear harmless, as the rodents romp merrily around the backyard in search of nuts to hide for later consumption. However, squirrels possess razor sharp teeth that do a number on anything left out in the attic. Once a family of squirrels enters your Prosper, TX home, the rodents begin work on building a large nest. The first source of materials comes from newspapers, magazines, and clothing left out in the open.
Eventually, the soft materials run out, which means squirrels turn to harder objects such as wood beams and wall insulation to complete the home building job. Squirrels are known to chew through electrical wire insulation to strengthen nests made mostly out of softer materials. The next time your lights flicker off and on, a squirrel might have gnawed through electrical wire insulation.
Squirrel Proofing Your Prosper, TX Home
Squirrels are gifted with extremely limber joints, which allow the rodents to squeeze through holes and cracks much smaller than their body sizes. The experienced team of squirrel removal experts at Brinker seals every hole and crack that forms on the exterior of your home. We also repair mortar and weather stripping damage to prevent a squirrel infestation. Squirrel proofing also involves storing dry food in airtight plastic containers and placing the containers inside tightly closed pantries and cabinets.
Leaky pipes and clogged rains form large enough water puddles for squirrels to quench parched bodies. We fix the leaks and clean drain grates to prevent water build up, with your basement a top priority for improved ventilation. Another tactic that works well for squirrel proofing your home involves pruning tree branches hanging over the roof. Squirrels use tree branches as springboards to jump on roofs. We recommend Prosper, Texas homeowners move firewood piles at least 20 feet away from their houses to discourage squirrels from setting up staging areas for home invasions.
Human Squirrel Trapping
Brinker Animal Removal has earned the reputation for implementing humane animal trapping methods. Instead of using poisoned baits that places you and your family in harm’s way, we use food bait to lure unsuspecting squirrels into spacious cages. After catching a few squirrels, we transport the rodents far away from your home to a wooded area located near a water source. We try to relocate entire families of squirrels to keep the pack together. Squirrels rarely pose a physical threat, which means we do not have to use force to catch the rodents and remove them from your house.
