We lost our amusement of these masked bandits this year when we had to replace our roof due to seven entry holes chewed in the roof. We are still struggling with the expense these creatures caused. They got it our upstairs (not the attic) and would come and go at certain times of the day.
We ended up having to have a trapper come, which got expensive after the third trip. He said unfortunately there was no way to prevent them from coming back. However, he did use ammonia to spray around the outside of the house to help keep them from climbing the downspouts and chimney. Marshmallows were also used as bait in the traps and were successful.
