Squirrel Control Barnet
The grey squirrel was first introduced to Kensington and the rest of the UK from the USA in 1876. It is now very common throughout London and the rest of England, Wales and Scotland where squirrels are seen as pests.
Most squirrels seen in Kensington are brownish grey in colour with white undersides and are about 25cm in length with a 22cm tail. Droppings vary in shape and colour depending on diet. They are spherical or stretched similar to the rats.
In their natural habitat grey squirrels build nests or dreys in the forks of trees or in hollow trunks. In urban areas they will enter roof gaps by ascending walls or leaping from nearby trees. Grey squirrels may carry fleas and other parasites and can pass these diseases on to you and your family if they get in your London home.
