We got all sort of wild animals in our neighborhood. Raccoons, squirrels, skunks, rabbits, deer, coyotes and possum. Well actually only seen one deer in our area. Well a couple summers back we had the trees trimmed that hang in our yard from the neighbors house. Some of the branches were growing to close to or were already touching the roof of our house. I'd see squirrels jump from the branches to the roof of our house. I know squirrels can do some major damage to your house if you let them. I think we have got sqirrels that entered the crawl space in our house. They must of gotten in through a vent on the roof. I know we will have put some screen or chicken wire arond those vents to keep the squirrels out. But thing is what if there are squirrels still in the crawl space after I screen up the vents. You can't just kill the squirrels like rats or mice. I know Monday I will have to call pest control to see what they can do I don't know how much work that will take to make the squirrels stay gone for good. I hear them crawling around up there quite regular.

Oh How do I make the squirrels stay away for good. I want them out of the crawl space. So the vents can be covered in screen. But not sure what I can do to lure them out and keep them out. Maybe I can do something and not have to pay for pest control to come out.
