Minnesota Red Squirrel Trapping and Removal 

Red Squirrel Trapping & Removal


The red squirrel is about half the size of the common gray squirrel.  It prefers to live in conifer trees and forests, and is sometimes referred to as a pine squirrel or tree squirrel.

Red squirrels are very territorial. Except during the short mating season in early spring and sometimes again in early autumn, red squirrels live alone and defend their territory vigorously. The female will stay with her litter until she is ready to have another litter. The average litter size is three; but they can have as many as five. Lately in the greater Carver County area the litter size has been five.

The red squirrels being smaller are quicker and require a special sized cage trap with a customized trigger pan. Red squirrels can be very distracting and can cause a home owner a lot of unnecessary anxiety.

These rambunctious pests can chew holes in walls, roofs and even chew through electrical wiring.

They often nest and have their litter in the attics of homes and buildings.

Red squirrels can enter a home at ground level or via the roof or soffit area.
