The critters are driving me crazy. Scampering around, chewing & scratching. Won't take bait into a live-trap, are too far in the eaves to get with a pellet-gun or slingshot (got the insulation up like a trench barricade), and even putting my dog up there won't scare 'em out. I need advice! (Thanks in advance.)

We had some varmit problems that got solved with a Have'a'Heart cage; not that I had a heart, I would drown the captured pest in the cage - but it caught some good size varmits.

Had a house in the woods where we had a bad problem with them. They chewed the wooden gable vents out so when I replaced the screening backed with rabbit wire they chewed the screening out of the roof power vents. Tried the cat and they like to drove him crazy but never tried a dog. Did get word about the ultrasonic gismo though and figured it was worth a try. No more squirrel problems.Just ask the wife if there was anything special about that gismo and she said all she could remember was it was suppost to take care of the squirrels.

If you can find out how they are getting in, you should seal the entrance during the day when they are out feeding. Could try the exterminator or ask their advise. I'll trade you them for my mice! LOL!

My cat has been getting fat.

We had good luck with some of that poison stuff that comes in cakes. Grain pressed into blocks with poison added.
You might try one of those ultrasonic things. Some people say they work. I have my doubts.
We did manage to get the flying squirrels out of our Grange hall using poison.
