Home & Lawn Pest Control : How to Get Rid of a Meddlesome Squirrel Living Under the Eaves


Hi I’m Jim Harmon California Pest Management
here in lovely southern California. We are going to talk to you today a little bit about
squirrel control, especially when you get a squirrel up in the eave of your house. Now
we have a typical southern California home even though this is going to be more of a
mid western type of pest problem that you’ll be dealing with. The eaves we have here, this
is an overlapping eave that we have in the front of this house, now typically if the
squirrels get up inside there it’s going to have to have a nice deep pocket, they’re cavity
nesters. So trying to get them out of there, well you need to really wait until after the
babies are born and they all take off. Once they are out of there and you see mama squirrel
is not coming in and out pull all the dead leaves cause they do a lot of stuff, put a
lot of junk in there, a lot of leaves and such which can be a fire hazard. Pull all
that out of there and you are going to have to get up on your roof, then get some hardware
cloth, screen, quarter inch mesh typically is best and put that up. If you can get aluminum
that’s better because that doesn’t rust. That should take care of your squirrel problem.
Have fun.
