Everglades City wildlife control tip of the month:
Will repellents get a squirrel out of the attic?
One of the newest crazes in Everglades City animal control is the use of repellants. You can find these concoctions just about any home store or pet shop. They have become so popular because people are looking for a fast and effective way to keep animals off of their property and away from their homes.
It is perfectly understandable that so many would opt for this considering that any solution that has science behind it seems to be the answer to most people’s problems. Let a lot of chemical compound names be added to a formula, most of which no one has the slightest idea what they are and a whole generation of people will buy it.
This has become the way that most Americans think these days, but one has to wonder if any of these formulas really work? Is Everglades City pest control just wasting money on a product that really has no chance for success?
The quick answer is that most repellants do not work to keep squirrels out of an attic. The reasons are really quite simple. First you have to consider that squirrels do not want to live in the entire attic. They just want a piece of it. If they can get to that piece without any real obstacles then they will go about their business and get to the location they want to find. Realistically you would have to spray your whole attic with these repellants to get them to cover enough area to make them at least effective against squirrels.
But consider that you may not want Everglades City wildlife removal to spray your entire attic with some kind of chemical which might actually cause more harm than good. Consider that many homemade ideas and commercial brands use such things as jalapeno pepper extract as the means to keep the squirrels out. But consider do you really want to have this extract all over your attic? The answer is most likely no.
A product that does appear to be having success for Everglades City exterminators are eviction fluids. Certain male animals give off a spray once they have mated to let all animals know to stay away. This is even true of the female of the same species of that animal. If you put this in your attic you will have success keeping squirrels away, but only if they are the female of the animal. Males are not repulsed and so this method will have no success at all.
