Squirrels can be a nuisance for rural and city property owners.

These furry creatures are known for their love of nuts, seeds, and fruits, and they can quickly decimate a garden or orchard if left unchecked. In addition to their feeding habits, squirrels can also cause damage to buildings and structures by gnawing on wood, wires, and other materials.

How to combat squirrel infestations

If you have a squirrel problem on your property, there are several steps our technicians can take to control their population and prevent damage.


Trapping is a preferred option for squirrel control, but it should be done with caution. Squirrels are regarded as a pest and must be dispatched by humane instant dispatch traps. Due to the risk to non target species and humans these traps should only be set and checked by professionals. Catch alive cages can be used to catch squirrels to remove them off your property, but as they are pest they cannot be released and must be humanely dispatched.


Shooting is a highly successful method of controlling squirrel numbers and has an instant effect on the numbers. Shooting is best carried out during the winter months when the trees have shed their leaves, which makes finding the squirrels and their drays much easier.

Squirrel wildlife control


Squirrels will happily make a home in the safety and warmth of your property, however due to their destructive nature this can be dangerous to the property owner as they will chew through electrical cables and plastic water pipes. At Landmark, we have a dedicated team of proofing specialist that can proof your property against all aspects of unwanted wildlife including squirrels.


Finally, it’s important to remember that preventing a squirrel infestation is often easier than trying to control one once it’s established. Keeping bird feeders and pet food inside, and removing potential food sources like fallen fruit from the ground, will make it less attractive for the squirrels to come to your property in the first place.
