    They sell smelly deterents but if that doesn't work, you can line the gutter with a thorny mesh and set mouse traps.

      Thanks so much. Currently I'm using coyote urine spray. Not sure if it's working but will continue till the bottle is empty. They use my porch railing, jump onto the awning then onto the roof! ugh. Some one said bird spikes which sound kind of what you suggested. Guess that will be next. Thx again - appreciate it.

    Remove or cut back trees they are using. I have not seen anything else that works. https://www.hunker.com/12592425/how-to-keep-squirrels-off-the-roof

    I had a family of muskrats that made themselves at home in between rafters of my 2 family townhouse. Haven't heard them since.

    Tree limbs need trimmed back so they don't have a way to get on the roof.

    Glad it worked.
