It is not recommended to block any holes until the squirrels have been removed, as this may cause further damage.
There are several methods for the treatment of squirrels.
1. Cage Traps:These are live catch traps which catch the squirrel alive. Squirrels cannot be released back into the wild once trapped.
2. Spring Traps:
These kill the squirrel out right.
3. Poison Baiting:
WARFARIN @0.02%, mixed with wholegrain wheat. This is the only poison bait allowed by law to be used on grey squirrels. Poison baiting can take time if access to other types of food is available (i.e. bird food).
Poisoned squirrels are prone to dying in inaccessible places, which can lead to smell and flies if not recovered.
