       Squirrel Removal From Chimney - Sanford Animal Control

Rats, chimney swifts, bats, and squirrels can all enter an open chimney cap. Most chimney caps protect the main chimney flue and keep animals from descending directly door through the fireplace. But most chimney caps leave the outer flue open. Squirrels frequently lose control and fall down into this tight spot and cannot crawl back out.  The space where animals fall down to from the outer flue cannot be opened from the fireplace level.  The only way to get the animals out is to give the critter something it can use to climb itself out with.

Removing Squirrel From Chimney

chimney squirrel in Apopka, FL
A typical chimney cap covering.  The main flue, the one that opens inside the house, is protected. But the outer flue is vulnerable.  Chimney caps come in all sizes and shapes.  Squirrels enjoy ones like above because they can use the cap to nest and get out of the weather.  If they nest there, they put their juvenile litter in danger of falling down the outer flue.

Wildlife Patrol drops a thick rope down the outer flue. Now its up to the squirrel. Most jobs of this nature require dropping a rope within 2 days of first hearing the stuck animal. Any later than 48 hours, the animal will probably be too weak to climb out and will die in the outter flue space.

With the rodent removed, the chimney cap is screened to prevent future entry.  This repair means this problem could never recur.

Florida's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. Wildlife rats, bats, and snakes have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Florida's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, our Sanford trappers do all animal pest control problems.
There is no free Sanford animal control for wildlife issues - rats, bats, and squirrels are services that are dealt with by Sanford critter removal companies.
