Aurora squirrel removal and rescue

Aurora IL squirrel control

Many Aurora squirrel removal calls come in 2 bursts a year. Once through Feb-March and once through June-Aug. The reason for the burst in activity is Aurora problem squirrels are grey and fox squirrels, which to many peoples surprise have 2 litters of young per year. We had an Aurora squirrel removal request very recently that produced a very rare black phase baby grey squirrel.

The baby squirrel along with a regular color phased litter mate were stuck on an Aurora IL roof after the mother squirrel was struck and killed on the road. The Aurora resident called U.S. Wildlife Removal Service to rescue the squirrels when she noticed the mother squirrel not returning and the babys running all over the Aurora home, however not able to make it down. The days were hot and the black roof was no place to be with out food or especially water. U.S. Wildlife had a truck sent out to aid the squirrels right away and set up traps for squirrel capture and rescue. The first night the baby grey colored squirrel was caught but not the baby black squirrel! Water dishes were placed, as well as hydrating food like apples on the roof and squirrel traps on the Aurora IL home were rebaited. The days counted down and the black baby squirrels fate did not look too good, as he wasn’t caught yet and hadn’t been seen anywhere in days. Then the Aurora resident called 3 days later with excitement “we got him!” We headed out immediately to get the baby squirrel off the roof before suffering heat exhaustion from exposure. The squirrel was observed by a wildlife rehabilitator and released when fully ready to fend for himself on his own. U.S. Wildlife was proud to remove the baby black Aurora squirrel from the roof and get him to a more natural setting.
