  • squirrels in the walls

    It sounds like they are dragging cables and wires around...In the autumn we had an infestation in our kitchen, but I plugged up and boarded any point of entry eventually. Today I hear them right behind my monitor behind the sheetrock.

    Anybody got any ideas? I don't want to involve the Property management people, because they will only try and kill them, maybe with poisons that are bad for my cats.

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."

    Put out some live traps & then BBQ the lil buggers. I hear theve got a delicious nutty flavor....
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

          lol no way predator animals dwell peacably among prey all over. Squirrels are cute and pleasing to my wife, whose heart is a soap bubble.

            predator scent should drive them out

            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.

              Usually not in their own den.

              But in that case... be a predator dwelling peaceably with some prey living cutely in your walls.

              Of course the smell of urine and the flea infestation won't be as cute in the summer.
              But whatever.
              It's cool.

                plus the constant chittering and banging around in the walls

                then they invite their friends and then start to party at all hours

                      last autumn they would rush in from under and behind the oven where it meets the wall, and down chutes between cabinets from the attic, 3 or 4 strong, and grab cans of cat food (with the foil tops), rip that shit open and feast and then try and drag it back behind the oven; I'd find empty or half-empty cans half-wedged in the walls LOL.

                      No one else just thinks that's funny? I don't want to hurt things that I think are behaving awesomely. If 1 in 40,000,000 men behaved this way, there would not be police brutality.

                        My parents had to put a new roof on their house because rodents were getting in the attic. One day (while I was away at school thankfully) a whole family of raccoons fell through the ceiling into the dining room. Apparently they're still getting squirrels in the walls because the exterior is rock. Now my dad picks 'em off with a gun...

                        I think squirrels are cute as $hit but I guess you got to get down to business when they're chewing through wires and ripping out insulation. : (

                          well I rent so I don't give a shit about any kind of damage to anything except my food supply and health/safety.

                            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.

                              Rats with bushy tails. Living with rodents is a threat to your health and safety, not them per se but the things that come with their feces. Good luck with that.
