I begin to have critter problems about 3-years ago. I hired a total of 5 pest control reps to come out and investigate. The first conducted a review of my attic and found no droppings or signs of rats/squirrels. I persisted I needed servicing due to the activity in walls. He charged me over $800 to critter proof my home and setup traps throughout my attic. Unfortunately, he did not trap anything using the dog food. The 3rd rep was Masseys, who is my pest control servicer for my home. They discovered the rubber boot surrounding the power pole extennig out of my roof had been knawed away, creating an entrance for squirrels. In fact, one squirrel hissed from a power line when he discovered the area. I called in the roofer, who repaired the area.
All other pest control representatives collected their $50 fee and told me I did not have a critter problem because they did not find dropping in attic and homne appears to be sound and critter proofed.
Well on my 3rd year, the squirrels have burrowed holes throughout my home and live throughout various walls within my home. I don't know what to do!!! I have read about trapping methods in which I will try. I wanted to leave a message to see what your thoughts are. I am a female living in a 1900 sq ft home. I am tired of banging on walls!
