Can't hear the squirrel in attic but something knocked large bucket
down and every day it jumps from our roof to front tree. Just in case,
any suggestions to deter this little fella if its taking up residence?
Thank you.

    First things first, you need to find out how it is coming in. Go in during daylight hours to see if you can see light coming in. If you find out where it is coming in put metal screening over it. Find if it has a stash in your attic or has made a nest and get rid of it. If you have windows in the attic cover them so you can see any daylight coming in the attic.

    Put moth balls in the attic. Then after a few days check and see how they are coming in and board it up. They don't need a large hole to get in as long as their heads fit through their whole body will. Check for nest also. Good luck. This has always worked for use..

    Or gal. She may be raising babies in your attic, or soon will. If you have things like cardboard boxes, burlap, other fabric, any food or seed bags, yarn, or anything else a squirrel or birds would want, start using plastic bins, buckets and boxes for storage. Best wishes ☺️

      I hope no babies---I wouldn't want to hurt them, and ,yes,
      a lot of storage up there. Will clean out. Thanks
  • I agree with Nancy, find out how the squirrel is getting in and seal if off.
  • Plug or screen off the area where it is getting in. If you can't find it, call an exterminator, they will find it for you.
