Squirrel Control Products

Nixalite Squirrel Control Products include live capture traps, repellents, animal control spikes and more.

While there are 40 different species, we will concentrate on the Grey and Fox tree squirrels as they are the most commonly reported pest species. Greys are usually dark grey on top with a white belly. Fox Squirrels are usually a red tinged grey on top with a reddish tan belly. Color varies for both species ranging from full black to albino white.

Tree squirrels live most of their lives in trees. They prefer forested to semiwooded areas in both wild and urban settings. They live in trees that are close to nut and seed producing plants as well as grass with edible shoots. They build nests 20 to 50 feet up a tree, using height as a deterrent to predators.

Tree Squirrels are rodents and are susceptible to the diseases carried and transmitted by other rodents. However, the most common complaint for tree squirrels is the physical damage they do to homes, buildings and other sturctures.

Impact on Human Health: Tree Squirrels are rodents and are susceptible to the diseases carried and transmitted by rodents. However, the most common complaint for tree squirrels is the physical damage they do to homes, buildings and other sturctures.

Impact on Architecture: When Tree Squirrels nest in man-made structures, they can damage wiring, insulation, HVAC systems, lights, siding and more. Their habit of chewing on power cables causes power outages and electrical fires. They raid bird feeders and take seed and suet intended for birds. Inquisitive and persistent, squirrels go to great lengths to get to nests or food. They can chew through wood, vinyl and sheet metal surfaces to get in attics, crawlspaces, ductwork and chimneys.
