Squirrel in the Chimney - Squirrel in the Fireplace

squirrel chewing damageIf you hear noise in the chimney in the middle of summer, it's probably not Santa. We respond to 30-40 squirrel in the chimney calls every year.

Squirrels in the chimney is a very common occurrence. Often times squirrels will try to make a nest in the fireplace to have their young. If you don't have a cap sometimes squirrels on the roof will simply fall down the fireplace flue. Squirrels are very good climbers, but most always cannot scale the sleek clay flue to get back out.

You can open the damper and try to let the squirrel out, but that often results in them frantically running around the house, wreaking havoc and more often than not, completely missing the wide open door. Squirrels have incredibly sharp teeth and will defend themselves when they feel scared or threatened. They have been known to bite people, which is why we never recommend a homeowner attempting this type of Squirrel Removal.

Customer Testimonials - Squirrel Removal & Exclusions

  • "We were unwillingly running a bed and breakfast in our eaves. Squirrels and birds were living it up in there! Fed up, we got 4 estimates before opting to go with the Wildlife Solutions and we are happy we did. They were very reasonably priced and also backed up their work with a 1 year guarantee. More importantly, we were very impressed with the professionalism and expertise the team demonstrated."

  • "While getting into my car in the driveway, I watched a squirrel perched on the side of my house chewing on my gable-vent. I called Westchester Squirrel Removal and described my problem. Kris was able to quickly explain the service and the wheels were set in motion. When I returned home from work at 6pm that afternoon, my vents had been squirrel-proofed and there were 3 squirrels in traps on my roof. I wish I could get that type of service everywhere. Thanks!"

  • "I want to thank you for removing the flying squirrels from our attic. I found the process very interesting and I'm so glad that no animals were killed. Other companies I spoke with said it couldn't be done that way. I'm so happy you could prove them wrong. You guys did an excellent job on the trapping and sealup. Now that the noise in my attic is gone, I can finally sleep again!
