Squirrel Cage TrapOur Squirrel Cage Trap is below this short description about Squirrels and how they can be a real nuisance either outside in the garden when they are trying to eat the bird food or when they are digging in the flower borders or vegetable plot in their search for food, or if they have gained access to your property and are *living* in your attic, loft of roof space where they can cause so much damage!
The main species of squirrel that causes problems is the Grey Squirrel which, in the UK, has taken over from the Red Squirrel by 15 to 1 and is generally regarded as a rodent garden pest. Grey squirrels are not native to the UK having been introduced from North America in the1870's to delight country squires and land owners!
We are now having to deal with pest squirrels on a large scale across the country and there are different ways in which these rodents can be dealt with such as with the use of an electronic repeller or a water blaster! However if you want to live catch a squirrel to perhaps take to a sanctuary, our Squirrel Cage Trap is a strong and robust metal trap made just for the job!
Squirrels are creatures of habit and so we would advise that in the short term [about 3 x weeks], you refrain from feeding the birds to minimise the food supply which makes your garden so appealing! Once the squirrels have been removed, you can resume bird feeding and enjoy again seeing your feathered friends!
