    seriously, it ain't healthy

    you can go to a farm supply store and get a small humane trap then release them a mile or so away
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
    lol

      I find it strange you wouldn't hurt annoying animals you want to get rid of, but would hit a small innocent child in the face.
      well again now, your pardon for repeating myself but...

      I said "slap his face."

      Slaps hurt for 2 seconds. You just have a very soft and ridiculous notion of hurt.
      "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

        Also... I'm pretty sure your landlord can have you evicted for allowing the squirrels to live in the walls and continue to do damage unreported or trying to hide the damage to "save them".

        It's a health code violation on his end to maintain a rental property in that condition (i. e. with rodent fecal matter, bug infestation, etc. )
        At least in some states it it... not positive that's true in Jersey.

        If you trap... release them at least several miles away, say in a public park where people feed them.
        One mile is well within the territory of a roaming gray squirrel for even a female.
        (Females typically occupy about 5-15 acre areas, males 50 to 55 acres... with about 30-75 total squirrels per 100 acres.)
        Basically... if the house is not fixed properly, a new set will just take the place of those moved out.
        Since you rent it is up to your land lord to make the house rodent proof.
        If squirrels can get in so can, and will, rats.

        Trap and remove the squirrels first if you don't want them "hurt".
        Or call a pest removal company that can be asked to do the same, but you'll have to pay.
        (Yes, pest removal companies do live removals all the time.)
        Then call your land lord and tell him that rodents have torn into the house again, have been removed, but that he needs to have the house sealed up so that they can no longer enter and do damage.
        That's how you handle this.

        Also... do this now... ASAP.
        If you think they are causing problems now while there are just a few of them, just wait until they start to multiply when spring and summer comes.

          They are really cute, until they chew into a wire, electrocute themselves, start a house fire, that burns out of control, wipes out half a city and countless souls, etc. You get the picture.

              As a kid, we had mice rolling nuts up and down the walls. Annoying as hell. We would all be banging the walls at all hours to get them to sit still for a bit.

              The worst was when the dog chased a woodchuck up under the porch, where it proceeded to climb up between the wall of the house and porch. It then peed on the electrical box it was sitting on, electrocuting itself. The lights didn't work for a while, my stepdad didn't investigate until it started to smell...a week or two later. At that point, he had to tear out the wall to get the stupid smelly thing out. Full of maggots and lovely, lovely dead smell.

              Get a live trap, and then call the landlord. He doesn't want to tear the wall out when they electrocute themselves.

                    There has been a war going on- evidently some kind of rival clan has laid claim to my attic, because these bastards fight grizzly fights through the walls now all the time, and then I can hear the pitiful crying of their wounded. Crazy shit.

                      Jeeezzzz people.... there is no evidence of any connection between CJD and ANY brain eating other than BSE infected cattle.

                      Squirrel brains are fine. Yum!

                        dude, the squirrels at a house i'm trying to make livable sound like giants

                        seriously, how does a small furry body make it sound like a cannonball hit the front wall?

                        i'm gonna try spraying peppermint oil around and see if it drives them out, i read on the internets somewhere that vermin don't like peppermint oil
                        beautiful
                        yeah you are

                          Have you ever watched them fight? Tasmanian Devil shit, their feet don't touch the ground. Like they literally leap at each other and do matrix style kung fu twists and tumbles in mid-air.

                          they are awesome though. Does anyone know if their front-arm patterns are unique identifier marks? I have gotten to know a few neighborhood squirrels by their arm markings and I am sad that it took me 30 years to figure this out.
