I have squirrels nesting in my attic. My husband nosed around up there one day and found that they've been chewing through our phone and electrical lines, a huge fire hazard! Does anyone have any suggestions on humane ways to drive them away?
We found the hole in the eaves where the squirrels were coming into the house. Imho, this is the most important thing to do because if you don't take care of the entry, you'll always have a problem.
I live in a rural area. In the fall, field mice enter houses to keep warm. We keep out a constant supply of Rid-Ex. (sp) The mice take it and store it away for food. I don't feel too badly if the squirrels eat it, too. After all they are rodents and in spite of their cuteness can spread fleas and disease.
