Our Approach to Squirrel Removal & Control
1. Property Inspection & Analysis
Our certified Portland squirrel control team will start by performing a thorough inspection of your home. We’ll assess any damage already made by the squirrels and look for other problems you may not have noticed yet. Our team will also inspect the exterior of your home to look for access points such as holes in your foundation and attic or overhanging branches on your roof.
We’ll explain our findings and design a squirrel control and prevention plan that will actually work.
If squirrels are sneaking into your house, we’ll make sure we seal off entry points to prevent future access. Our squirrel control team is very thorough and never leaves anything to chance. If your home requires a large technical repair, we’ll call our partner construction company to perform the fix.
3. Careful Squirrel Extermination
Our Portland squirrel control team will use a series of professional traps and other safe capture methods to remove the squirrels from your home and property. Our targeted squirrel control methods are designed to be highly effective and safe for your entire family (even your pets!)
Inspect. Exclude. Exterminate. Our experienced Portland and Vancouver exterminators make squirrel removal safe and simple!

What attracts squirrels to my home?
Squirrels are very common in the Pacific Northwest, the most common being the Western Gray Squirrel. These creatures are always looking for shelter and food. If your home has a lot of trees, unsecured garbage, pet food, animal feeders, or easy access into your home, squirrels will be attracted to your property. However, even if your home doesn’t have these issues, you could still be experiencing a squirrel problem.
Can squirrels hurt my pets?
Most squirrels are fearful of humans and pets and will run away when approached. However, if a squirrel feels trapped or endangered, it may try to scratch or bite. If you’re dealing with squirrels around your home, never try to remove them yourself – it could be dangerous. Our team specializes in squirrel removal and control.
Do you do all your prevention and squirrel damage repairs in-house?
Almost all our squirrel prevention and repair work is installed and performed by our own technicians. We also partner with our experienced sister construction company to perform larger, more technical repairs as needed. The only exception is electrical damage. If a squirrel has caused you electrical damage, we’ll subcontract this repair as it requires a special license.
What do you do with the captured squirrels?
We are required by law to euthanize the animal. We use the most humane methods available, allowing the squirrel fall asleep and go unconscious before passing away some minutes later.
