  • We had them in our old house. We put a trap out (the ones that just catch them, not kill them) and put some peanut butter and some bird food in it. We put it right under the part of the eve where they were getting in. We'd catch one, then drive it down to my parents house (20+ mile away) and let it go. We did this three times and didn't see anymore in there, so we fixed the eve and the problem.

  • to get them gone for good you have to close up every where there coming in at they will go out on sunnydays so when they leave close all the holes up if you dont they will just come back

You have to find out how those little devils are getting in...then use some bait in that area to get them out... way out!!! They love corn and bird seed...use that. Then seal up that attic..OMG!!

  • Get a cat! I had FLYING Squrriels in mine at one time! I opened the attack door and my cat lived up there for about a month. After that I never had a problem again.

  • She will change her mind 10 times before she is 18 just pray she does not leave multiple and bring more home, mine did. Make sure she understands being a mom young is not all it's cracked up to be. Maybe she needs to go for her and for you, my daughter is now my best friend. Remember children come through us and not from us, she has her life to live and it is noy a reflection of you. Remember how you felt about your mom at 17 and try to believe it is normal.
