"All known methods of squirrel eviction have been tried and the homeowners have already suffered with the problem for 37 years.”Read the Article
We had squirrels in our attic and could not get rid of them by conventional methods. In desperation one day we started searching the internet for suggestions to rid our attic of squirrels. The strobe light idea came out of that search. We found the Evictor Strobe Light on Amazon, ordered it and installed it. The first night the squirrels went crazy! The second night - complete silence. We did have to buy a second light as the squirrels moved to a different area, which was noted in the Evictor Strobe light instructions. After installing the 2nd light, again, complete silence. My husband and I would highly recommend the Evictor Strobe light to anyone who has rats, mice or squirrels in the attic or crawl space.
We tried for months to get the flying squirrels out of our attic in 2008. Even the pest service told us it was nearly impossible to get them out. The Evictor lights were our last hope, and they worked immediately. No pests in 9 years! Today we replaced the bulbs for the second time. Just in case.
I had a terrible infestation of squirrels in my large walk-up attic. I installed the Evictor up there mid-March with the windows covered, and almost immediately noticed a couple of squirrels looking displaced and annoyed on the tree outside their entry point. Haven't heard any up there since it was installed. But some squirrels had been entering the attic between the second floor ceiling and the attic floor, so there could be places in there that the Evictor strobe can't reach. With the warmer weather I've had to open the windows to cool the space, so that could reduce the effectiveness. As soon as I close up all their entry points I'll have a better idea whether they're completely out of there. Wish they made a teeny version of the Evictor that would fit inside a soffit or between the ceiling and floor above. Service from the company was speedy and the product seems durable and well made -- and it's made in the USA.
I discovered the Evictor through AsktheExterminator.com. The Evictor does exactly what the ad says. I used the Evictor to evict squirrels in the ceiling crawl space of our house. Within a few minutes after installing the Evictor I heard them scrambling around. Within a day it sounded like they had vacated. I left the Evictor running for a month as recommended and checked the crawl space. No signs of the squirrels. I covered the inside of the gable vents where they entered with wire mesh and have not had any return. Thanks for a great product that delivers what it promises.
A disco strobe light actually pulses faster than EVICTOR® but it only has a fraction of the candlepower. The EVICTOR® 10K is a 175,000 candlepower high intensity strobe light. It is the intensity of the strobe lights that make our products so effective on any squirrel, roof rat, raccoon or other rodent. EVICTOR® 10K Professional strobe lights are also OMNI-DIRECTIONAL shining all all directions to create an umbrella effect in attics and crawlspaces.
EVICTOR® strobe lights are 100% successful at permanently evicting squirrels, roof rats, norway rats, and raccoons, and just about any other rodent. They were tested on homes where squirrels occupied attics and crawlspaces for over 30 years.
Pest Tools LLC was formed around the invention of the EVICTOR® by Bill Earl. Pest Tools has sold thousands of EVICTOR® strobe lights throughout the United States & Canada for the past ten years.

It works on Squirrels, Roof Rats, Norway Rats, Raccoons Feral Cats, Bobcats, Opossums, Groundhogs, Skunks and More living in attics, crawlspaces, and darkened areas under houses. It also works on Rats living in cars chewing electrical wiring. It does not work on bats.
The EVICTOR® 10K Professional strobe light is intended to be left on 24 hours a day, 7 Days a week, 365 days a year. If you had a serious rodent problems with multiple entry holes and a lot of damage, chances are other rodents will enter the attic if the strobe light is not left on.
How long does each strobe tube or bulb last?

My attic has mounds of pink insulation covering the attic floor. Will the strobe lights be effective if a rodent can tunnel into the insulation?
Squirrels can tunnel into the insulation. In some instances they have built a kind of insulation wall to hide from the light. However, squirrels prefer to live on top of the insulation. The nests are easy to find because the insulation is depressed into a bowl shape. Also, when you place the strobe lights in the attic, you make the area an unsuitable place for squirrels to raise their young.
My problem is not in my attic. The squirrel entered my home through the sub-roof between my first and second floor. Can a strobe light be place in this area?
Yes! The EVICTOR® 10K Professional can be placed in a floor or ceiling.
The Evictor Strobe Light's high intensity flashing annoys the squirrel's eyesight making it difficult for them to live in and move around the space. They will leave the space in a few days after installation of the light.
The Evictor Strobe Lights® have not been tested thoroughly to work on mice, in a limited number of instances the strobe light has been successful. If you have tried the Evictor Strobe Light® on another rodent that is not mentioned on this site please contact Pest Tools® and tell us about it.
