Pests can get into your home and start causing problems at any time of year. This means you could find yourself with an unexpected bill from a pest control company, and possibly an electrician so it is important to be prepared for these unplanned events. Many people wonder how much does squirrel removal cost in the UK, and there is no single answer to this question. The cost of squirrel removal and other kinds of pest control will depend on the severity of the infestation, the size of your home, and other vital factors. In this article, we are looking into how much does squirrel removal cost in the UK, and the factors which can impact the price.

What Affects The Cost Of Squirrel Removal?

Squirrels are common all across the UK, particularly in towns and cities. While some consider them cute, furry woodland creatures, the truth is, they can be just as problematic as rats or mice. These rodents can chew through parts of a property to gain access to areas including loft spaces and will often chew through wiring. While there are a few ways to get squirrels out of an attic, enlisting the professional help of a pest control company is the best option. It is illegal to catch and release squirrels in the UK, and a pest control company will be able to dispatch squirrels in a legal and humane manner. This is included in the cost of squirrel removal in the UK, but a few things that can impact this cost are:

  • The Scale Of The Infestation: The size of the problem and the number of squirrels that need removing will affect the cost. Removing one squirrel from your home will always be cheaper than eradicating multiple pests. This is why it is so important to act quickly when you identify a squirrel problem, as they can escalate quickly.
  • Type Of Treatment: Depending on the area of the home and the level of infestation, different pest removal treatments might need to be used. This could include traps, habitat removal or biological control, and each will impact the cost.
  • Property And Garden Size: The bigger your property, the more space there is for squirrels to roam freely. This makes them more challenging to catch and remove, so generally, if the property is bigger, extra traps, bait and time will be needed meaning the removal will be more expensive. 
  • Location: Just like any service, the cost of squirrel removal will vary depending on your geographical location. Generally speaking, costs are higher in southern areas or the country and in big cities. 

How Much Does Squirrel Removal Cost In The UK?

Although there are so many things which impact the cost of squirrel removal in the UK, a general estimate will be between £150 to £300. It takes roughly two to four hours for a standard squirrel removal, spread of 3 – 5 visits although this time will vary depending on the level of infestation. Most pest control companies will include the cost of removing and dispatching of the squirrels in the most humane manner. Some companies may also include costs to squirrel proof your home to prevent the infestation from returning.
