We are experts for Squirrel Removal in Lancaster PA and the Vicinity
We receive calls for squirrel removal in Lancaster, PA year-round, but during the winter months indoor activity peaks. As temperatures drop, squirrels seek out protection from the elements. They often enter through chimneys, attics, and crawl spaces of homes.
Squirrels can enter these spaces of your home by accessing a variety of vents or finding a “weak spot” in your home. Trapping and removing the squirrels is the best way to ensure squirrels will not return. In addition, exclusion work such as chimney caps and vent guards prevent squirrels or other animals from returning.
Squirrel Removal from Chimney
We recently performed squirrel removal in Lancaster. We received a call from a customer who was experiencing noise in their fireplace. They suspected a squirrel. After inspecting the fireplace and chimney flues, we were able to confirm that a squirrel had accessed the open chimney.
Often, a squirrel that enters a flue-lined chimney is unable to crawl back out due to the smooth texture of the flue tiles. After removing the trapped squirrel from the fireplace, we verified no additional blockages were present in the chimney. Then, we installed stainless steel chimney caps on both of the open flues to prevent future issues for the homeowner. Aside from keeping out additional squirrels, the new chimney caps will keep out other animals and have other benefits such as fire prevention and more.
