First I have to thank you John for a wonderful website - it has been invaluable to me in coming to the realization that I have to get serious if i want to save my house.

I trapped my first squirrel inside my house this morning. I hated to do it but i euthanized it. I put the cage with squirrel in a large garbage bag, used my shop vac to pull out most of the air and then re-inflated the bag with nitrogen gas. Nitrogen gas is just air with the oxygen removed. Within a few minutes the squirrel was dead. There was no struggle, no poisonous gases, it just seemed to fall asleep and was dead. Nitrogen gas can be purchased at welding supply stores and is not very expensive. I don't think i could have drowned the squirrel.

Again, many thanks for a great resource!
