Squirrel Control & Prevention

Grey Squirrel Control & Prevention

The UK has two species of squirrels; the red squirrel and the grey squirrel.

In 2018 it was estimated  to be approximately 140,000 red squirrels and 2.5 million grey squirrels

Grey squirrels are regarded as pests because they are an invasive species which impacts the numbers of the red squirrels:

  • Grey squirrels carry a disease called Parapoxvirus, which can kill red squirrels.
  • They eat the food source of the red squirrel before it ripens (acorns)

Grey squirrels are an invasive species
