What attracts ground squirrels to my yard?

Ground squirrels are almost always looking for food and water sources everywhere they go. They typically are attracted to nuts, flowers, grains, garbage, and seeds. They also seek warmth and shelter, especially in the winter months. When looking for food and shelter they often cause structural damage to your property and yard that can be costly to repair.

What are signs of a ground squirrel infestation?

Because they dig and often burrow, it’s not hard to spot a ground squirrel infestation within your yard or garden. Some signs of an infestation include:

  • Mounds of dirt
  • Holes
  • Grass patches
  • Destroyed plants or flowers
  • Chew marks
  • Nests
  • Droppings

How do I prevent ground squirrels?

To prevent ground squirrels from invading your property it is important to keep your yard neat and tidy, be sure that all trash is properly sealed, remove any standing water, and regularly mow your lawn. It’s also vital to ensure that your yard is free of insects and other pests that ground squirrels might feed on. Indoors, be sure that all the cracks and crevices are properly sealed.
