Squir­rels ev­ery­where

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) - - OPINION -

I have a ques­tion here cuz some­body to some­body please help me. I’m hav­ing a big prob­lem with squir­rels com­ing in my at­tic and I got some in the wall. I ap­pre­ci­ate it. If you could get me some in­for­ma­tion from any­body.

You have to seal up the at­tic and then you should get some live traps or call a pro­fes­sional who will bring the traps. Some ba­sic wire mesh over any vents or gaps big enough for a squir­rel should do the trick to seal up. If you have a chim­ney, you might need to get a cap for it. It’s im­por­tant to get the right kind of bait when you get the traps. Ap­par­ently they like peanuts and peanut but­ter. So you could prob­a­bly just get a whole lot of peanut but­ter and smear it on a neigh­bor’s roof and they’ll leave you alone. — Ed Note even put your garbage out be­cause the an­i­mals are in your garbage. I wish you would come out here and look at this and try to do some­thing. He cleans the lot up the street, but I paid my taxes too, and I would love to live in a de­cent area. — A reader
