Different Types of Squirrels

The most common squirrels found in the UK are the grey squirrel and red squirrel.

Grey Squirrels

Grey squirrels usually have bodies measuring at around 18 inches. The adults normally weigh about one pound. The grey variety can have some other coloured hairs in their coat and they normally have a white stomach. Their summer coat is shorter and sleeker, taking on a more brownish hue.

Most active in the daytime, grey squirrels can inhabit the attic areas as well as smaller crawlspaces. They normally enter these areas from your gutters or nearby bushes. Spouts are another common entry point.

Red Squirrels

Red squirrels are smaller in size and lighter in weight, with a brownish red coat in the summertime. The natural habitat of the red squirrel is a tree cavity in wooded areas – especially among hickory and oak trees.

Squirrels generally tend to cause more problems in the spring and autumn. This is because they are usually actively looking for food during these seasons and creating issues along the way.
