Local Experts in Squirrel Control & Property Care

​Have you heard strange noises in your loft or come across a squirrel nest in or around your property? Those are signs that you have a very serious squirrel infestation, and it is crucial to get this rectified quickly. Squirrels can cause severe structural damage and spread nasty diseases such as typhus, ringworm and tularemia.

How to identify

Signs of a Squirrel Infestation

Squirrels, along with other pests, can be difficult to exterminate. However, understanding the first signs of a squirrel infestation will guarantee efficient removal before they breed or damage your property further.

  • 01


    If a squirrel has moved in upstairs, it is highly likely that you will hear scratching noises. They are fast and hard-working creatures, so you will hear them rustling around and gnawing on materials.

  • 02


    You may also identify a powerful urine smell coming from the loft. This indicates that you have had a squirrel infestation for a long time.

  • 03


    Squirrels are naturally strong with extremely sharp teeth. Their front incisors are kept healthy by the constant gnawing of tree bark, woodwork, grass and nuts. These teeth make the perfect tools for gnawing through cable sheathing, which can expose the electrical wire inside. This is not only a serious fire risk, but it can be very expensive if they chew through appliance wires or internet cables. They also have a tendency to chew through plastic water pipes which can result in costly leaks. Furthermore, squirrels will gnaw through loft fibreglass insulation and plasterboard, seeking a safe hiding place or nest material.

  • 04


    Seeing a squirrel is the first, most obvious sign of a pest issue. You have probably noticed a squirrel in your loft, as they will use loft insulation as nesting material. Attics and spare bedrooms make the perfect homes for squirrels as they are unoccupied spaces with easy access points. You may also identify squirrel droppings around your home or a large number of squirrels on your roof or along high fences.

Lindsay Wilson

The job was completed very quickly which was of the utmost importance due to the biohazards found. I cannot recommend PestMax highly enough and out of the other two businesses I contacted claiming to be professional and responsive, Im still waiting for them to get back to me after three weeks! I realise that they were possibly not equipped for the job, whereas Dan and his experience in this kind of situation was the perfect guy.

Waqar Taxi

Kieron came out to us today, he was very helpful and polite, he was on time and very professional. The service received was great

Ruth Durham

Fantastic work from Dan. Speedy quote and work completed quickly and efficiently. Great communication. Would recommend to all.

Vicky Beattie

Dan came out the day that I called and dealt with the wasp’s nest quickly and professionally. So far we’ve seen no more wasps so I think he solved the problem! Would definitely recommend.

Matthew Holden-James

Called Dan who was great on the phone and came a day later to sort the problem. He is fantastic to deal with, explained what he was doing and why, and even cleared up as much of the dead wasps as he could. Great service, and would recommend to anyone who has a problem with wasps! Thank you

Joy Preece

Polite & professional guys who got on and did the job required. I would definately use them again and would highly recommend them.

David Cunneen

Dan got rid of a problematic wasp nest. Was super responsive, gave an overview about them and was done within 30 minutes. Great service and the best value out there

Lauren Bryant

Can not recommend pestmax more! We had a very persistent ants nest in our bathroom, we called dan out when we first noticed them. Dan arrived on time and had the upmost professionalism whilst being friendly, Dan quickly located where the nest was and advised the best treatment plan as we have an under 5 in the house. Dan was more than happy to come back to lay more bait down when needed and was easy to reach with any questions we had. I am pleased to say the ants are no more thanks to pestmax! Considering the amount of time spent and product used for this we found the pricing to be very reasonable too which helps with the way of current affairs at the moment.

Yvette Hodges

I had a problem with lots of maggots, which were coming into the house. I had tried everything, but they just kept coming back. I rung Dan and within 10 minutes he came round. The problem was linked to a wasp nest, which Dan explained in detail and he rectified the issue within an hour and a half. Dan literally is a star. He was friendly whilst remaining professional. He explained everything and discussed costs The whole matter has made me feel at ease in my own home. Would definitely recommend this company and would use again.

Alan Martin

Submitted a couple of requests for quotes via Checkatrade to have a wasps nest treated. Dan from Pestmax replied by text within minutes. I called him and agreed the price, which was very reasonable and considerably less than anyone else who replied. He came out that afternoon, on time and sorted it out. I’ll definitely recommend him and use him again should the need arise. Cheers mate - good job

Julie Slade

Just the most helpful kind people which I can’t thank enough highly recommend

Belinda Rea

We had A rat in our garden. Dan was soon out as I am petrified of them. He put poison down in a proper rat box and made sure everything was safe for our dogs. A week later came back to see if there was any progress. Sachets of poison had been taken back to the burrow. He put my mind at ease to tell me that with the amount taken any rats would be well gone. He took the remaining poison and box away for peace of mind with the dogs. A lovely, friendly and reassuring man. I wouldn’t hesitate to use again thoroughly recommend. Thanks Dan.

Nicola Seymour-Smith

Dan was really helpful and friendly. Explained exactly what needed to be done, was efficient professional and the service was a reasonable price. I’m glad to say the wasps are gone!

Nat T
