Squirrel Removal in Vancouver BC
Our trained technicians at Westside Pest Control LTD will inspect the attic and every exterior inch of your home or business. Part of our process always involves entry point exclusion to ensure that all potential access points have been sealed so that the squirrels and other rodents are unable to re-enter the home.
If we are unable to determine if the squirrel is out of the structure, we will install a one-way door (kind of like a cat door) which allows the squirrel(s) to leave but not re-enter. The door is then removed and the access point sealed during our follow-up visit.
Think you have more than one squirrel in your attic? Squirrels breed in the spring and sometimes again in late summer or early fall. Call and speak to us about our humane squirrel removal methods.

Tile Roof Exclusion
Tiles are a popular roof choice for many home owners in Metro Vancouver. They are are great for aesthetics, longevity and preventing leaks. Unfortunately, tile roofs are also notorious for providing easy access into homes for rats and squirrels.
The rounded end of tile roofs provide countless potential entry points for rodents. Tiles are usually overhanging gutter lines (or rat and squirrel highways!)
As tiles move, they can be difficult to seal from rats and squirrels. There are often more than 100 points of entry depending the size and design of the house. It can be effectively done however!
Sealing Up Rodent Entry Points
Like mice and rats, squirrels can find there way into homes through cracks and openings that are usually overhanging gutter lines. Here, our technician installs grated covering to block rodent entry points.

Bird feeders are wonderful ways to connect with nature. They are also wonderful ways to keep squirrels and rats happily fed. Not all “squirrel proof” feeders actually prevent squirrels from stealing lunch! Birds are very light. Use feeders that disable access when weight is applied to the feeder, as well as extra large domes on top. Also, a small mesh grid pattern is preferred to help deter squirrels and rats from getting the free meal!
