Do you have a problem with flying squirrels? These nocturnal creatures are notorious for making squeaking and scurrying noises in your home. If you cannot sleep because of their noises, it’s time to get a flying squirrel trap.

If you’re looking for an animal that’s hard to catch, there’s one that flies high in the sky: the grey squirrel. Though they are an arboreal species, they generally construct leaf nests high up in the canopy. Although they typically den in tree cavities and wooden boxes, they will occasionally build their nests in attic roof spaces and eaves. In this paper, we’ll examine grey squirrel nesting behavior, including the importance of observing and analyzing nest site occupancy and determining the effectiveness of controlling them. Learning more about their behaviour can help us to develop grey squirrel control programmes in Europe.

Protecting your bulbs from squirrels
To protect your bulbs, use a deer repellent or critter-repellent product. Scents are effective ways to deter squirrels, but there are natural alternatives, too. For example, you can sprinkle crushed oyster shells or ground red pepper over newly planted bulbs to make them unattractive to squirrels. You can also spray the bulbs with deer repellent or place a spiked feeder in the hole.
