How to get rid of squirrel? Now I’ve seen these little critters during the summer months, racing around parks and fields, without a care in the world, not really harming anybody.
Everyone loves them so why would you want to get rid of them? Well once they get into your loft/attic, they can cause an endless amount of destruction.

You can buy squirrel traps from many stores online and offline stores, their design so once the animal is trapped inside, the only way out is by a human releasing the pest.
Place a few nuts or some food in the bait box; once they enter, the lid will close, if you use this method in conjunction with the soft netting, all you’ll have to do is check the attic area a few times a day until the animal is captured.
