Squirrels do not need to be harmed or killed just because they have decided to use your house as their home. There is a better way than Squirrel Extermination, a kinder, humane method of squirrel removal does exist.
Squirrel trapping and removal is always an emotional issue, there really is two sides. The emotional and popular political side and the safety and security side. Squirrels do cause many house fires annually so there is that. Squirrels are also very cute, fuzzy and adorable to watch play in your yard.
Squirrel extermination is the exact opposite of squirrel removal in many ways, extermination:
killing, especially of a whole group of people or animals.
“the near extermination of the buffalo herds”
synonyms:killing, murder, assassination, putting to death, execution, dispatch, slaughter, massacre, liquidation, elimination, eradication, annihilation, slaying “the extermination of mob rivals” complete destruction.
As the definition is clear about it the killing of squirrels. There are a number of methods to get squirrels out of a structure, positive control live trapping is just one of these ways. Positive control trapping is the best way to capture problematic squirrels therefore the method is used by the best squirrel trapping companies in the United States.
Baiting vs Positive control trapping:
When baiting for squirrels you will be catching a lot of squirrels. Many of those squirrels however are not “target animals” the actual squirrels getting into the structure therefore many of them will be squirrels from the surrounding area that have nothing or very little effect on the structure/home. Positive control trapping focuses on the squirrels that are actually coming and going in and out of the house. These typically are the squirrels chewing wires and damaging structural wood beams as a result you achieve better catches. Positive control trapping methods catch fewer squirrels but they are the exact squirrels you are after to catch.
