Squirrel trapping by Speedy Animal Control

At “SPEEDY ANIMAL CONTROL” we strive to get rid of squirrels quickly by using humane trapping techniques to trap squirrels in the San Diego area. All trapping of gray (known as ground squirrels) and tree squirrels (commonly called known as fox squirrels) is done in accordance with local, state, and federal laws. We humanely capture and remove most animals. If the removal of these Squirrels must be done, it should only be performed by trained and licensed professionals. In many cases, these Squirrels cause harm to people, pets, and your homes. Preventative maintenance is highly recommended to keep those pesky Squirrels from returning.

Habitat Modification:

You��ll generally find ground squirrels in open areas, although they sometimes use available cover. Remove brush piles and debris to make an area less desirable. This also aids in detecting squirrels and their burrows and improves access during control operations.

Ground squirrels can reinvade a site by moving into vacant burrows. Destroy old burrows by deep ripping them to a depth of at least 20 inches, using a tractor and ripping bar(s). Simply filling in the burrows with soil does not prevent reinvasion, as ground squirrels easily find and reopen old burrows.

Ground Squirrels:

Ground squirrels are troublesome pests for homeowners and gardeners. The California ground squirrel, Spermophilus beecheyi, is the most common species in gardens, parks, and gold courses. This squirrel’s habitat includes nearly all regions of California.

Identification:

It is easy to identify ground squirrels, since they forage aboveground near their burrows.
Their body measures 9 to 11 inches, while their semibushy tail adds another 5 to 9 inches in length. Their fur is brownish gray and speckled with off white along the back; the sides of the head and shoulders are light gray to whitish. One subspecies that inhabits most of Northern California has a dark, triangular-shaped patch on its back between the shoulders; this patch is missing from other species. Although ground squirrels look similar to tree squirrels and can climb trees, when frightened they always will retreat to a burrow, whereas tree squirrels will climb a tree or tall structure and never use a burrow.

Biology and Behavior:

Ground squirrels live in a wide variety of natural habitats but usually avoid thick chaparral, dense woods, and wet areas. Populations can be particularly high in grazed rangelands and in areas disturbed by humans such as road or ditch banks, fencerows, around buildings, and in or bordering many crops. Ground squirrels live in a burrow system where they sleep, rest, rear young, store food, and avoid danger. The burrow openings are about 4 inches in diameter but can vary considerably. The burrows can be 5 to 30 feet or more in length and can extend 2 to 4 feet below the soil surface. Often there is more than one opening in a burrow system. Ground squirrels live in colonies that can include several dozen animals in a complex of burrows. More than one squirrel can live in a burrow.

Ground squirrels are active during the day, mainly from midmorning through late afternoon, especially on warm, sunny days. Ground squirrels have two periods of dormancy during the year. During winter months most ground squirrels hibernate except for in southern California, but some young can be active at this time, particularly in areas where winters aren’t severe.

During the hottest times of the year most adults go into a period of inactivity, called estivation, that can last a few days to a week or more. During these periods, the burrow appears open at the entrance, but the squirrel plugs it with soil near the nest.

Breeding:

Ground squirrels breed once a year, averaging 7 to 8 per litter. Timing of breeding varies with location. In Southern California breeding begins in December, in the Central Valley the timeframe is February through April, and in the mountain ranges breeding begins somewhat later. Above ground activity by adults is at a maximum at the height of the breeding season.

Gestation:

Gestation is about four weeks. The young are born in the burrow and grow rapidly. When they are about 6 weeks old, they usually emerge from the burrow. At 6 months they resemble adults.
