We have squirrels in our attic. And our walls, and the floor between the two floors, and... well... where ever else they've decided to tunnel though in the house. They used to keep me up at night as they hauled in their acorns through a hole in the attic above my bedroom or scampering about playing tag in the middle of the night.
We've since closed the hole under the roof eve that they came in through and set out cereal baited live traps in two of the storage rooms we've heard them in.
We thought the cereal was a better solution then the poisoning option our landlord would like to go for. I'm sure he's thought that through and knows that when the damned things die IN THE WALLS we'll be calling him back in to remove the rotting bodies via random holes IN THE WALLS. Because, that's sure to be where the critters will be when they finally kick the bucket.
However, after this morning, I'm beginning to rethink the whole poison solution...
Yes, that right there is an acorn. In the storage room. Containing the baited trap.
