Eastern Grey Squirrel
Washington has several species of indigenous squirrels. The two most common causes of a squirrel infestation in Central and Western Washington are the Eastern Grey Squirrel and Douglas Squirrels. Eastern grey squirrels, an introduced invasive species, will often outcompete native squirrels for natural resources driving the native species out. Douglas squirrels (pineys) are smaller and distinguished by a bronze reddish color. They are aggressively persistent at invading structures. Squirrel removal will help to protect your structures.
Douglas Squirrels have access points that are much harder to identify than grey squirrels. Squirrels chew into structures and can be highly destructive. They can chew through almost any building material to access attics or crawl spaces to have their young and cache food and chews through electrical wires. The Eastern gray squirrel can have 2 litters per year (May-July) with 2-5 pups per litter. Douglass squirrels can have 1-2 litters per year with 3-7 pups per litter. Additionally, squirrel entry points can pave the way for other pests such as rats, mice, birds and other rodents.
