    Lots of real good ideas. Now where do I get 100 lbs of dynamite?

    I didn't realize they are so destructive. Now I have to find the way in first.

    Go get 'em right away. My saga lasted years, caused much damage and it got personal. They even chewed up my climber. It was never ending for a while. I have hatred for them. This was next:

    Iam dealing with this now is my rental. 7k for a new roof, flat roof. They chewed through the ceiling joists , so the roof saggged, and started to leak, new ceiling joists plus the decking. so i had to pay extra for that. They actually chewed through the ceiling and got into the back room. Between that and the piss soaked sheetrock, i had the get the whole ceiling redone. That was another $1800. They started on the ceiling fan wiring, but we got it in time before a fire, so that was a $500 bill to rewire that , they shredded the soffits up in the eves to get in, so i had to pay for all new soffits, fascia boards, and gutters, because they fell down when the fascia boards couldnt support them. And now those lil effers are back, destroyed my new soffits and one fascia board again. THERE WILL BE NO HAVE A HEART TRAPPING. Theyre up to almost 11k in damages.

    Do you have any overhanging tree limbs within 4 to 6 feet of the roof? If so, cut them back or cut the trees down.

    Are you definitely sure their squirrels? I had mice in the attic and they sounded like they weighed 10lbs walking around.

    spent 4k in removing all trees. This is a brick row house, so they can come from the far end, but mostly they climb right up the brick face. Woods across street in front, and the back of the house is up against woods, tons of squirrels.

    HOLY SH*T!! Seriously, I had no idea they can cause that much damage. Now I have to get real serious about the situation.
