San Diego Squirrel Emails:
I'm sorry to bother you with this, but you seem to really know what you're doing, and I'm at my wits end here in San Diego. Another "wildlife removal expert" came to my house today to address the squirrel situation, and suggested the use of glue traps, which was really very disappointing.
So, I've decided to work up the courage to trap them myself. I'm getting anxious because these squirrels are not in my attic or basement. They're in my apartment. Well, really, they're living in the drop-ceiling over my bathroom and kitchen, but I found pawprints
indicating that they've actually been inside the
house. Also, a few nights ago, one of them
climbed down my wall and tried to get in through
my baseboard heating. The only thing I had on
hand was aluminum foil, so I shoved it into the
baseboard. As I was doing that, I could feel the
animal clawing at the foil, and it started
making frantic screeching sounds (or maybe that
was just me?) It eventually gave up after about
a half hour, and went back up into my ceiling.
More than anything else, I'm concerned about the
possibility of snagged or chewed electrical
wiring. Having opened up the ceiling tiles and
taken a peek, I can confirm that I have two
adults and at least three young squirrels on my
hands. The young squirrels do have fur, so I
would imagine that they are old enough now to
fend for themselves. I need your advice about
traps. I thought repeater traps might be the way
to go, but since these traps will have to placed
on my drop-ceiling tiles, I'm concerned about
weight issues, especially once the animals are
inside the trap.
i think we have squirrels (or something else) in our house. it's a double wide, triple decker in san diego. our bedroom is off the back porch (which is definitly rotting in some places and also next to a big tree).
our unit is on the 2nd floor. last night around 4am we heard scratching and chewing in the ceiling that made its way across the room and stopped when we pounded with a broom. we would very much like advice with how to
proceed. I haven't had a chance to look around the perimiter for areas where they might get in.
