We have a squirrel that visits our loft 3 or 4 times a week at about 4am AND MAKES A RIGHT BLOODY RACKET. We need to be rid of it because the sleep depravation is sending me and the missus psychotic and before it chews through a cable.
Unfortunately the design of our house roof is such that there is no access to some of the area that it has been getting into. The Verminator from the council came round to have a look this morning and said that he can’t help because they would need to retrieve the body of the squirrel and any unconsumed poison. So, he can’t just lob lethal chemicals into the inaccessible areas and they can’t put it down in the accessible area in case the squirrel consumes it then chooses to expire somewhere from where its cold dead stiff corpse can’t be retrieved.
I am therefore going to have to catch the little sod with a trap... Which brings me onto the question of what I should bait it with.
Any suggestions, serious or otherwise?
I know that squirrels like solving puzzles, so I was thinking of trying to tempt it with a jigsaw and a Rubic Cube.
