How to Get Rid of Squirrels in the Garden

August 15, 2023

We understand how frustrating it is to have critters tearing up your garden and we are here to help! First, we’ll need to identify what kind of squirrel you have on your property.

Tree Squirrels vs Ground Squirrels

The most notable difference between these squirrels will be their habitat, tree squirrels make nests in trees and ground squirrels make underground burrows. Another easily spotted difference will be their tails; tree squirrels have large bushy tails while ground squirrels are smaller and not bushy. You can read more about the differences between them here.

It is more likely that ground squirrels will be invading your gardens but tree squirrels have been known to do damage to gardens as well. We do not offer any services for tree squirrels but if you think you have a ground squirrel infestation then our ground squirrel control program can help you!

You can read more about the program here. 

If you have any questions or are interested in ground squirrel control you can give us a call or submit an online form!
