They are so cute.

But not when they get in your attic. And your crawl space.

It's costing us a bundle to put out the "NO VACANCY" sign- cleaning out and sealing up.

Not to mention relocation. Our local rules allow these furry friends to be moved.... so peanut butter in the live trap, and then a car ride to some open forest far away. I feel bad not letting them stay, but as a friend said, they are like rats with furry tails- and they can do a lot of damage to roofs and wiring and insulation. So they have to move out. For good! (Sorry little guys....)

Make it a Wonderful Day!


  1. I had a battle with them last year, take a look at the damage they can cause to your woodwork:(http://grendelskin.blogspot.com/2010/03/youll-take-my-equity-away.html)
    I later had the closest tree to the house taken down to prevent them leaping into my home again. Don't be conservative about your precautions, go overboard if need be. Good luck!

  2. Oh, yes! When they eat the insulation off your telephone line and the broadband dies until AT&T can get here, it's frustrating. In our backyard, we've observed squirrels eating our antique roses, and moss rose. One year, a group of migrating, lethargic butterflies settled on a tree in our yard, and the squirrels had a feast. Until I witnessed this stuff, I used to think they were so cute!

    Love your blog!
