You may have tried every trick in the book on how to remove squirrels in the attic.
There was the option of checking inside and outside for possible points of entry, and sealing these holes. You may have tried that, but for some reason you are still hearing the little feet of these critters running through the upper room of your house.
You may have heeded the advice of your local hardware store, to buy traps. However, no matter how much you try to capture them, there are still one or two squirrels too clever to get into the traps you place.
There are still many more ways to handle these pesky critters. You may find them unorthodox, but many people who have tried these methods no longer have the problem of squirrels in the attic.
There’s no need to try to enclose the attic, or to trap the squirrels, if you can get them running away willingly by leaving a radio on in the attic. If these squirrels have not been to your attic before, your chances of scaring them off with a radio playing talk shows are high; squirrels run off when hearing human voices.
That may work as a start, but you may want to work towards considering dedicated repellents that emit a high-pitched sound. You may not hear this sound, but squirrels and other small rodents will find it absolutely unbearable and insufferable. If you don’t have any other pets in the house, ultrasonic repellents will do the job of driving these squirrels away.
Light can also do the job of sound. You may want to consider installing strobe lights temporarily in the attic, to startle and discourage any squirrels.
Finally, you may want to try messing with the squirrels’ sense of smell, in addition to confusing them with sound and light. Ammonia rags or commercially produced squirrel repellents do the job nicely.
One last thing to note is that these are the most effective methods of getting the squirrels out of the attic, but take note that you will need extra measures to keep them out. As soon as you know that there are no more squirrels up there, do what needs to be done to make sure they have no more points of entry, so they would stay away for good.
