Squirrel Problems

The Grey Squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis) has been resident in the UK since being released in the 1870’s. It was seen as a fashionable addition to country estates.


As the Grey Squirrel is larger than the UK’s indigenous smaller Red Squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris), it has pushed it in to a few small pockets around the country. Populations of the grey is estimated at 2,500,000 across the UK, it is thought that Red Squirrels number only around 10,000 -15,000. Squirrel problems are damage to flora and fauna and property.
