I HAVE A FEW SQUIRRELS LIVING IN MY HOUSE. THERES ONE SIDE OF MY HOUSE THAT HASNT HAD SIDING PUT UP AND THEY’VE GOT A LARGE HOLE. THEY GO IN AND OUT AND ALSO CHEWED THROUGH MY SOFFITT. THEY’VE GOTTEN TO BE A BIG PROBLEM. I HEAR THEM CHEW AND NOW RUNNING BETWEEN THE 1ST FLOOR CEILING AND UPSTAIRS FLOOR. THEY’VE BEEN HERE A COUPLE YEARS BUT NOW GETTING MORE ARGESSIVE OR CLOSER TO BEING INSIDE. I ALSO HAVE TREE SQUIRRELS WHICH I DONT REALLY WANT TO KILL; JUST THE ONES INSIDE. ITS ALMOST IMPOSSISABLE TO GET TO WHERE THERE AT. NOT REALLY AN ATTIC ACCESS JUST HOLE ON SIDE OF HOUSE. I NEED ADVICE WHICH PRODUCT TO TRY. IVE USED A SQUIRREL REPELLENT (GRANUALS) PEPPER JUICE I THINK BUT KEPT THEM QUIET AWHILE BUT DIDNT GET RID OF THEM. HATE TO POSION THEM IN FEAR OF THEM DYING IN ATTIC AND ROTTING AND STINKING. WHAT TO DO THANKS GOING NUTS NO PUN INTENDED.
Based on the amount of activity you have and the area involved, you have no choice but to either hire a professional trapper to come and remove the active animals or get some of the SQUIRREL LIVE TRAPS from us and do the work yourself. As our online squirrel control article explains, once they get into the home, trapping is really the only option. Forget using poison; there aren’t any listing squirrels as target animals and if one was to die inside, there would be a bad odor issue for sure.
Fortunately squirrels are easy to trap. Right now you state they are active in areas which you cannot access which means you’ll have to trap them outside on the roof or the ground alongside where you see all the activity. Since squirrels are easy to trap using the bait and setups listed in our SQUIRREL CONTROL ARTICLE, I’m sure you’ll be able to capture enough of the animals active and eventually gain control of the invasion.
For now, I recommend getting at least three of the live traps listed in our article or on the squirrel trap link listed above. Make sets including our TRAPPERS CHOICE PECAN PASTE and I’m sure you’ll be successful with your efforts. If you have further questions or concerns, give us a call on our toll free 1-800-877-7290.
