||Squirrels have to go out of the hole, and when they do, they get trapped.
Customer Squirrel Email: David, My house is too tall to reach where the squirrels are from the outside. (No ladders/no money.) I am certain there are babies in the sofits with mom. (Don't seem to be in the attic, just sofit.) Since I can't reach from outside, can I drive them out with loud bass music or spray perfume through the drywall to make the mom relocate the babies?? Lynn
My Answer: You can try loud bass music of perfume, but I'm almost certain neither will work. In the above photo, you can see squirrels caught out of a soffit using a repeating cage trap. A setup like this is your best bet.

Probably the most common human/wildlife conflict nationwide is the one between people and squirrels. The Eastern Gray Squirrel is an agile and common suburban and urban animal, and it loves to chew and explore. They frequently raid the birdfeeder, but this isn't a big
problem. The real problem is that squirrels commonly seek out places in which to live, and this commonly includes human dwellings - attics, crawl spaces, walls, chimneys, and more. They chew and often cause damage inside buildings, to wood and electrical wires.
The only way to permanently solve a squirrel problem is to find out how the rodents are gaining access to the inside of the building, and
fix those openings, after the animals have been trapped and removed, of course. One-way exclusion devices also work very well for squirrel problems in buildings. If you want to learn more, please read my How To Get Rid of Squirrels page.
