Squirrel Control FAQs
Are your ultrasonic squirrel deterrents effective?
Yes, our ultrasonic squirrel deterrents are effective. They provide a humane way to deter these cute critters from your property without harming them or using potentially dangerous compounds.
Sound is an effective deterrent for all manner of pests, including squirrels. Placed in key areas around your garden, you can begin deterring them within hours.
How do ultrasonic squirrel deterrents actually work?
HomeShielders’ ultrasonic squirrel deterrents work by emitting ultrasonic noise. The products include a battery or mains-powered unit that will either permanently emit the sound or use a detector to play sound when it detects pests.
The sound is inaudible to humans and most pets but is audible to most pests, including squirrels. Pests find the noise irritating so will seek out areas without the noise.
What other pests do your ultrasonic squirrel deterrents work on?
Our ultrasonic squirrel deterrents can also work on snakes, bats, cats, deer, mice, opossums, raccoons, rats, rodents, skunks and a range of other mammal and insect pests.
Most smaller animals can hear in the ultrasonic range so these deterrents will work on those too.
How long will these deterrents take to work?
Much depends on the seriousness of the problem. What we can say is that previous customers have begun noticing a reduction in pests within 7-14 days.
More significant pest problems will take longer but as our ultrasonic squirrel deterrents are hands-free and fully automatic, you can just leave them to protect your property!
How many ultrasonic squirrel deterrents will I need?
The number of ultrasonic squirrel deterrents you need depends on the size of your property. The larger the garden and the more trees you have, the more ultrasonic squirrel deterrents you’ll need.
Each deterrent can cover a wide area and we recommend overlapping those areas slightly for maximum effectiveness. Contact one of our team if you need specific guidance on coverage.
How are ultrasonic squirrel deterrents better than pest control?
Ultrasonic squirrel deterrents from HomeShielders are better than pest control for a number of reasons. They include no poison, no traps, no chemicals, no harm to the squirrel, no danger to children or pets, 24/7 protection when operating and prevention as well as cure.
Plus, they are much cheaper than most pest controllers we know of!
Is there anything else I can do to deter squirrels?
Alongside using one of our deterrents, you can ensure no bird or animal food is left in your garden or yard, fill any gaps in fascia or external rendering to prevent entry into your home and keep trees close to your home trimmed to prevent the squirrel jumping into your home.
If you remove as many sources of food as you can, squirrels should soon lose interest in your property and go elsewhere. Combined with that constant ultrasonic sound, that should be enough to deter even the most stubborn squirrel!
