Squirrel Control in Yorkshire

On medium to large estates it is easy for pest species to gain a foothold. Squirrels are no different and will take full advantage of what estates have to offer.

Squirrels are adept at stripping tree bark. They tend to carry this out between the months of April to July. This will often result in mature trees losing limbs or completely dying off. This can have costly consequences for the trees that are to be harvested. Many estates will also have arboretums, significantly aged trees and woodland areas that are at risk of squirrel damage.

The non-indigenous grey squirrel is renowned for pushing out the red squirrel due to its dominance within the woodlands and its ability to carry squirrel pox.

Grey squirrels will feed and forage on fallen seeds from naturally regenerating trees and shrubs, this can have an effect on growth structure and the diversity of the woodland itself.

Squirrels can be instrumental in the decline of nesting birds and their eggs due to food competition in the local area.

Squirrels are known for feeding from and damaging pheasant feeders. This may have wider implications for the birds you are trying to rear in the surrounding area.

The use of warfarin (squirrel poison) is now banned. Agripest are specialists in the use of live catch traps, snares and various other techniques. Sourcing a professional company with solid expertise in this area will ensure trees and local wildlife remain protected. This will save on costly future interventions and safeguard the estate environment.

The use of warfarin is now banned, so many forestry based industries will be forced to employ four people to set traps as opposed to just one for laying poison.

The installation, checking, moving and replacing of traps is a costly and time-consuming process. It is imperative that the team undertaking the project is efficient and experienced as this will determine the speed, results and cost of the cull.

We provide a live catch alternative for sensitive areas or locations that may also contain a red squirrel population.

Depending on where you are in the UK the squirrel population might provide a source of income. Many people enjoy watching both red and grey squirrels in their local parks for example but remain unaware of the damage they may be causing above their heads.

Squirrels are expert bark strippers. This can cause trees and branches to die back, posing a serious risk to the public below. Squirrels can also be a source of leptospirosis and salmonella.

Squirrels will also forage from bins, both open and closed. They are renowned for stealing food from the public and causing serious damage to authority buildings.

Squirrels dig and forage for nuts and seeds. This can reduce the success of woodland regeneration and prove deadly to woodland areas and forestry in the long term.

AgriPest understands the importance of safety and the need for discretion in sensitive areas. We have highly qualified and experienced staff, the right equipment and project management structures to ensure the swift and efficient completion of every job.
