Squirrels - Cute little creatures, or Evil decorated rats from Hell?
When I first moved into my house a little over a year ago, I thought it was great that there were squirrels in the trees out back. I even got them a feeder and kept them happy with corn.... Awwwwweeee... How cute..... Yeah right. Little bastards decided that the trees weren't good enough for them. They figured since the guy with the food was so nice, he'd share his house with them too... so they decided to move in to the attic. And nooooooo.... One entrance isn't gonna cut it either.... they decided they needed about 20 different doorways... Nice, eh? So now I have a couple of problems. #1 I have squirrels in my attic! I need to figure out how to get them all to move out. #2 I have to fix all the soffit vents around the house... Not sure if I'll go back with the screen or if I should use something more durable (and expensive). Anybody have experience with squirrels? How did you drive them out and keep them gone? Did you trap em? Mothballs? Cats? Light and loud music? What works? Little friggin pretty rats are all these things are! I now aim for them on the roads when they run out in front of me (I used to slow down and swerve...) Death to squirrels!
