I was preparing for a new listing the other day at my house when I heard rustling in the attic. I couldn't figure out where the squeaking and rustling was coming from, until it hit me. Squirrels.
After getting a nervous tick from all of the running around, I was confident that they were playing a game of Jenga in my attic. Either that or rearranging my Christmas decorations.
I finally got in touch with Dave Link with Linx Extermination to come over and see what needed to be done. They spread some peanut butter smelling pouches throughout the attic to basically lure the squirrels into the attic, they eat the pouch, mouths swell, and then they have to go seek water -- and thus, they get out of my attic.
After a few days, I was back to peace and quiet. Thankfully!
