Home » Squirrels


In the Beeches, the most common type is the Eastern Gray Squirrel. These animals grow from 40 to 50 cm long from head to tail, with the tail being as long as the body. Colouration can vary from white through gray to black.


If they gain access to a house, they can build nests, chew on insulation, and urinate and defecate.


Squirrels are vectors for:

  • Salmonellosis
  • Lyme disease
  • Tularemia
  • Leptospirosis
  • Rabies (rare)

In addition, they can act as hosts for ticks and other pests which, in turn, can transmit disease.


If threatened, squirrels can become aggressive, so it is best to have a professional handle removal.
