8 weeks agoI had to get up on the ladder and I installed metal screens over top pf the attic vents in my house. I sure did not want them squirrels in my attic. I killed a couple of flying squirrels up there years back, that got in up there someway. They had started chewing the gypsum siding on the inside of the wall up there to make them a nest in the wall. As far as I know the larger gray squirrels were never able to get in up there.
Some people have trouble with bats getting into their attic, I have had them living in those attic vents but the wire kept them outside of the attic itself. When I check those and I see a bat on them I will hit it from the inside and try and kill it if I can.
Bats in a house are not good either, for one thing they can carry Rabies and the other is the BAT SChitt!!!!!!!!!!!
