Squirrels are one of the most disturbing pets that can give one a headache. Here are some of the ways to get rid of squirrels found in the attic:
Fox is squirrels natural enemy. Fox urine is used by hunters to camouflage their scent. Go to stores selling hunting paraphernalia and buy bottled fox urine. Wear rubber gloves then soak a piece of cotton with fox pee. Place the cotton with fox pee in your attic. Squirrels will get extremely quiet so as not to disturb the “fox”! They will get out as fast as possible! Then a few days till you are sure they are gone then seal up all the possible entry points.
Trap all the squirrels then close up all the holes they use to enter the attic. Do not poison them, unless you have to, or you will be forced to deal with the bad smell for some time.
Get yourself a pest exterminator or you can opt to buy several cages. Trap them then relocate them a few miles from your place or even out of the country. Then look around the house for all the possible entry regions and plug them well. Squirrels can easily chew their way through mesh wire! If anyone from your family is feeding them then ask them to stop! Stop feeding your cat or dog from outside, feed them from inside. And never leave your pets food outside; remember squirrels know good things when they see them. Pet food attracts squirrels, rats and even raccoons. Also, if you happen to have a bird feeder near your house, move it to a another place that is far from the house.
When you decide to relocate squirrels, make sure you take them as far as possible and make sure you travel in zigzag or they will come back. Before moving them away, make sure you mark them so that when you see squirrels again, you will be able to know whether they are the ones you relocated or new ones. The real solution is to use Victor trap, squirrels meat is delicious and nutritious. If you get some they can make a good meal!
