Squirrel Extermination

Squirrels are part of the rodent family and can grow from 16 to 18 inches in length. Squirrels are funny animals and despite their cute looks, they become annoying pests when they grow into an entire army and inhabit your property for a long period.

The opened one with bait placed inside it and trapping the animal through its body once it reaches for the food. Or the one placed over a path, so that whenever the animal crosses through it, it snaps shut and kill it. However, this style might be dangerous but make sure to check the manufacturers instructions and be cautious when setting and assembling the trap. Dot set the trap where a child or pet could be trapped.
