How to Get Rid of Flying Squirrels

From the ground, a flying squirrel looks like a regular squirrel, until it suddenly spreads its arms and glides from limb to limb. While flying squirrels are incredibly fascinating creatures to see in the wild, you do not want them on your Greater Boston area property for a number of reasons. Mainly, flying squirrel urine carries dangerous bacteria that can both damage your property and be detrimental to the health of you and your family.

Therefore, if you have spotted the winged rodents around your home, here is what you can do to get rid of flying squirrels.

Flying Squirrel Removal Tips

  • Use Mothballs

There are many different household items you can use to potentially repel invasive flying squirrels. The pungent odor produced by mothballs is often effective at deterring squirrels away. If you have mothballs on hand, simply place them where you have noticed flying squirrel activity. Continue to monitor the area to see if the mothballs have any effect on your flying squirrel problem.

  • Try Flying Squirrel Traps

If they are becoming a destructive nuisance, you can try trapping the flying squirrels. Flying squirrel traps can easily be purchased at your local hardware store. However, keep in mind that it is always risky to come into close contact with a wild animal if you do not have the proper protective gear. Furthermore, amateur trap setting can result in injury to yourself and the animal, so it’s best to leave live animal capture to wildlife removal professionals.
