$@$%^$##@$$$ squirrels
« on: February 23, 2008, 10:59:52 PM »
Thursday morning when I got in my truck to go to work it was running really rough, and had no power. I called a mechanic to pick it up once I got to my office. I just got it back this morning. $580 and a new wiring harness later I found out that squirrels had built a nest under the hood, and were chewing on the wires. This exact same thing happened to my wifes car a year ago.  Between the two vehicles I have spent over $1000 repairing damage from squirrels.  X-(  I have declared war on the squirrels. This afternoon I set traps all over the yard. When I catch them, I will post some new recipes on the recipe board.

Just a hint about trapping/killing squirrels, you have to get the female to get the activity around your house to stop.   I've seen this with attic squirrels at the houses of friends and families.  If you don't manage to find the female, the activity will continue.  Good luck.

Good luck Joe..     Around my area this winter we were over run with Rats.   I hate those damn things!    I tried to by nice about it and call one of the humane companies to come catch them and take them away..   That didn't work and was a waste of money...    So off to Co-op I go to get the rat poison..   Problem solved in 3 days.   LOL

We had a problem with various rodents getting in the engine bay at a previous house (right next to a large field). I put out these little boxes that emitted ultrasonic and the rodent problem stopped. Might work for squirrels too....
