Generally Grey squirrels build their nests in the forks or hollows of trees, however, they will occasionally make nests the roof spaces of houses. As with rats and mice, the best way to solve a squirrel infestation is to prevent it forming in the first place. If you already have an infestation, however, contact your local pest control company straight away.
There are two main types of squirrel in the UK, grey and red. Red squirrels are very rare, and as a result, they are now a protected species. Although you can put preventative measures in place to deter red squirrels, you cannot kill them and any harmful action taken against them may result in a fine of up to £20,000.
If they are allowed to get into your roof space then they will most likely form a nest out of plasterboard, woodwork and insulation from around electrical wiring which can cause huge problems and a fire hazard.
