Thanks for the excellent learning experience. It's unfortunate that I live in Syracuse NY, so you have no recommended contractors in my area. I may try the traps that let them out of my attic, but not in, if I can find them in my area. I live in Southwestern NY. I have ordered the device that let's them go out, but not back in, and plan to install it in a few weeks, to insure that the babies will follow their mother out of my attic. Then, we'll seal up the holes. I had no desire to trap the animals. Again, David, thanks for your info. I also have a question for you. If I exclude the female from the attic, will the young be active & smart enough to follow her out at some point, or will she just try another way to enter. I'm pretty sure the young will be able to exit, since they're quite active. I can hear them running through the attic several time per day. I got the "device" at online superstore, called a squirrel controller. I bought the larger of the 2, 12" x 5" x 5". I'll let you know if it works.

Yep, the young ought to be smart enough to exit, so long as they're at least 5-6 weeks old.

Thanks, David. Let's hope the "controller" is built well enough to let them out, and not back in If you'd like, I'll let you know what happens. If I had the wherewithal, I'd build a version of this controller, with heavier gauge wire, and tweak the spring mechanism a little, but maybe it'll work. We'll see!

Hey David, I am leaving in a few weeks for our annual Canadian fishing trip. I just heard from the group that just left our camp that there is a red squirrel in the wall of the log cabin. These are pine logs, likely 80-90 years old as the lodge was previously a base camp for a fire watch tower crew. Pic attached of the front of the lodge. Most of the rest of the lodge has T-111/plywood covering the outside of it as it continues to decay. The squirrel has gnawed it's way through several of the logs and sandwiched it's nest somewhere between the logs and outer plywood. The folks did put a plywood piece on the inside wall as they felt the squirrel was close enough to coming through that they needed it! There is no live trap and I can't take the pellet rifle across the border. There is a low grade antifreeze in the camp used in all of the plumbing at the close of the year but I have to assume it will not be effective if we use it in the water lines. Also, I am very handy and clever having previously built my own mouse trap using a hunk of pine log, fishing line and peanut butter to get the mouse to bite the line and drop the log on itself! We dubbed it "Thumper"! Last group says the squirrel is very active at night and kept folks awake. I don't think I will have any issue taking regular auto antifreeze across the border or just buying it there. That's an option. Any other ideas?
