After speaking with a few of the large and expensive wild life control companies, and feeling very discouraged, I contacted Grady's Wildlife Removal and spoke with the owner. He understood the problem right away-squirrels had taken over my shed- and he explained how he could remove the squirrels, and possible babies, in a humane way. Humane removal was even more important than cost and yet cost was a big issue too.
He came to my house the next day equipped to deal with the problem.
There were no "assessment fees" he had explained the cost in terms of what might be required so there were no surprises.
Two red squirrels had filled my shed with black walnuts. They had built two nests with stuffing from chair covers and they broke in to bags of earth and wood chips. The floor was covered in nut shells and the rafters
were full of black walnuts. It was a horrendous mess.
Thankfully there were no babies in the nests and the squirrel that was present left the shed. For the next three hours he worked on restoring my shed and blocking points of entry. To properly remove all the stored nuts he had to left the edges of my steel roof which was not an easy job. His thoroughness was extremely impressive. So was his knowledge of squirrels and in my case the habits of the red squirrel.
As well as being knowledgeable and hard working, he is a genuinely nice person to work with. He restored my shed back to normal and I was very grateful.
