    well last couple of nights the dogs...thor and jake have been going nuts...i figured it was just the coming full moon ...so last night they are barking hard....you know any noise after dark ...is man noise and for da man to deal with....so i punch his sorry ass awake with a sharp elbow...he finds the dogs barking at the ceiling....

    Call animal control and get a trap. The neighbors might look unkindly on you if you followed the advice above. If the local government in your area does not provide traps free, call a private contractor. Don't use poison unless you like the smell of death and cadaver flies.

    no no no ... no permanent solutions here...as the man calls flat out killing them....my plan....trap them...cover holes with hardware mesh...(man would like to point out my ass is not doing this, his is) so hostile that one....take the trapped squirrells to an isolated place with no houses and free them....take each one caught to the same place to reunite the family (insert quite nasty words here from man)

    Wait . . . .

    Help, squirrels in the attic

    or

    Help squirrels in the attic

    For the first one you can go to the home improvement store of your choice and purchase a humane trap, set it, and forget it. I use one to trap the stray cats. Works great but cats are dumber than squirrels. On second thought, send the dogs in after it.

    For the second one . . . were you thinking Florida condo or NY loft? lol
