ok so we are hearing some heavy scratching on the wall and suspect it's a squirrel. Not sure how loud chipmunk sounds so we think its the squirre. comes to find out we had a whole in our roof under a peak that the recent roofers forgot to cap off. luckily it snowed, and i saw footprints and thought he was out, and tried my best to plug the hole with wire and stuffed some hand towels around it. I don't think it's secure but looks pretty tight. can they find their way around the towels? also, once we plugged the original whole, he was back on the roof, so we felt pretty sure he was out. now he built a new whole under the facia, I plugged that, but now the sound is back? reading your site, it's possible the squirrel got back in thru the facia, it's an old 1700's home so we think yes. if I re-open both holes and place a trap, is this my best option? we're there 2 squirrels and not one. what will an exterminator do, other than set the traps? This is so unbelievable and i'm completely freaked out. will they chew through the wall? what does the odor smell like when they die?
