Grey squirrel



The Grey Squirrel was first imported from North America in 1876 and importation continued until 1929.

The preferred habitat is deciduous woodland, but they are successful in an urban environment, entering private houses and causing severe damage by gnawing wiring, water pipes, stored items and rock wool insulation.


CSS are experienced at controlling grey squirrels, mainly by trapping. For free advice about problem  squirrels in Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire or the East Midlands please call us on 0800 254 5003.
