Weighs 450g-650g and has a 19cm-25cm tail. The North American Grey Squirrel as the name suggests in a non indigenous species to the U.K. and still classed as an imported species. The grey squirrel was introduced into Britain in the 19th century as a curiosity by the Victorians. A common sight in our parks, gardens and woodlands, the grey squirrel is a hardy and adaptable mammal. There is evidence to suggest that the more adaptable grey squirrel has pushed out the native red squirrel and contributed to its decline. Many people are pleased to see the grey squirrel and often feed them in parks and gardens, but some home owners, bird watchers, gardeners and farmers consider grey squirrels as an unrelenting pest problem.
The grey squirrel has strong rodent teeth that can destroy bird feeders, dustbins, electrical wiring, plumbing, loft insulation, and loft timbers. In urban areas one of the main pest problems posed by the grey squirrel is when they gain access to roof spaces, roof cavities, lofts, attics and cause expensive damage to the fabric of the building. Grey squirrels can also be an annoyance to gardeners by digging holes in lawns. Signs of grey squirrels to look for in the loft are unusual noises coming from the loft, knocking noises in the loft, scraping noises in the loft, scurrying noises in the loft. Grey squirrels will also breed in a loft, building a nest from the loft lagging / loft insulation. Further signs of the presence of grey squirrels in the loft are gnawing damage to loft timbers, gnawing damage to electrical wires in the loft, damage to loft insulation and the presence of droppings and ammonia like smells in the loft. Look for signs of an entrance hole in the eaves of the building or damaged vents.
