The Grey Squirrel was introduced to the UK in the late 19th to early 20th century.
They now represent the largest squirrel population in the UK.
Their winter coat is grey above with a white underside and their summer coat is shorter, sleeker and more brownish grey. Red squirrels have red/brown upper parts in summer but may show some grey on the back in winter.
They have two litters per year and mate between December to February and between May to June.
Grey squirrels are considered pests as they cause damage but also transmit a virus which kills red squirrels.
Once inside your property, squirrels can cause considerable damage including chewing through electric cables and eating through roofing beams.
Once caught, it is illegal to release grey squirrels back into the wild.
Grey squirrels are most active during the day, and can inhabit attic areas as well as crawl spaces. They like to enter the attic areas from your gutters and nearby trees and bushes.
