I can’t take it anymore

I’ve got a tremendous amount on my plate already and frankly, sometimes I’m at the end of my rope, holding on for dear life. The very last thing in the world I need right now is to hear these motherf***ing squirrels running around in my attic. It’s driving me crazy. There’s probably a dozen of them and they’ve made the 3rd floor of my home their playground.

There are things I can ignore and there are things I can’t. These squirrels are one of those things I simply cannot cope with.

While I can’t get up on a ladder and repair the hole they are getting in through (my back simply won’t allow that anymore), I can go to Home Depot and by a live trap. I can trap every last one of those tree rats and relocate them far, far away from my house.

I’ve not done this yet because I simply don’t have the money to purchase the needed equipment. Nothing has really changed in that area but I have reached a point where I’m going crazy and unless I do something, it’s not going to end well. I’ve decided to buy a trap because it’s a necessary investment and it’s long overdue.

I will probably head out this afternoon, get a trap and begin to extract a long overdue vengeance on my little house invaders.

My plan is to get the trap, make some tiny finger sandwiches that they’re used to eating because my neighbors insist on feeding them these little bastards, and catch as many as I can. I’m going to also set up my some wireless cameras to monitor the progress and notify me when I catch anything.

As much as I hate these squirrels and I hate them with every fiber of my being, I want to be humane. While I want them gone, I don’t want them injured or dead. If I could just scare them away I would but they are so used to people feeding them, they simply don’t scare easily. Maggie used to be a big deterrent to the squirrels but since she’s passed, they have become more brazen. Rudy literally isn’t much, if any bigger then the squirrels and she doesn’t inspire much fear in anything.

I can’t take anymore and this has to work.

Ummm, what? The neighbors feed them sandwiches? I know it isn’t funny but all I can picture are those videos on youtube where people make tiny little meals for hamsters

I don’t know if you are serious or not about making sandwiches for the traps, But I would go with something harder for them to grab and go with. they are very smart and very fast and can skip a trap and be gone without being caught

Ugh. That is an awful problem. I’m assuming you can block the hole they are coming in after you catch them. Good luck!
