How do I remove a grey squirrel from my loft or attic space without harming the squirrel ?
Use The Trap Man live catch squirrel trap loft kit, which contains all that's needed to catch your squirrel.
The kit contains a squirrel trap long enough to capture all the squirrel without harming it but small enough to easily fit through your loft hatch, a small torch (with batteries) to inspect the squirrel trap and find your way around your loft in the dark, a pair of gauntlet gloves to handle the trap while you get it down from the loft, our own special squirrel attractant bait and instructions. remember The Trap Man gives you email help for as long as you own the trap, just quote your invoice number when requesting help.
First find where the squirrel is entering your loft space, it's normally through a hole in the soffit board or a gap between the slates and the barge board just behind the gutter. Don't fill or block off the hole untill you're certain your squirrel's not in residence, it'll only make some more hole's to get back out or might die of starvation trying to escape, ruining your underfelt or possibly chewing through your wiring in it's frantic search for an escape route
