Our Squirrel Control & Removal Services In New York City, Westchester County or Long Island, NY
Standard Pest Management has been safely removing Squirrels from residential or commercial properties throughout NYC since 1929. The most common species throughout New York is the “Gray Squirrel” and it’s a nuisance all year round. This is because during the winter months, they will try to find a nesting ground inside your home or property inevitably causing problems. This usually occurs from Fall through Wintertime and they are out daily during the warmer months of the year. The Gray Squirrel is predominantly Gray with a large bushy tail and sometimes a bit of red fur.
They will primarily try to build up bundles of food within the forks of trees and even dig up bulbs from gardens. Though, this is not the main reason why they are such a nuisance to home and commercial property owners. They will attempt to gain access to your indoors via crawling across power lines, entering through chimneys, or through an entry point within your wall or roofing. Once they get in, you’ll want them to leave right away.
