You’re mentioning a "familial" thing when in answering RexJ really caught my interest for the following reason: For the longest time, because I travelled a lot for business, I was unaware of the fact that squirrels had overtaken my attic. I only became painfully aware of that fact, when I left that job for one closer to home, with no travel. Since that time (a little over 2 years), I have trapped and put down over 50 squirrels, all of whom decided to live in my attic, over that period. About 2 months ago, I heard commotion in the attic, set traps, and nailed 2 tree rats. Since that time, I have not seen or heard a squirrel on my property. As a result, I dreamed up this crazy theory that the squirrels I have been catching and killing are all related; that is, and that some 'natural' memory chip brings them back to their place of birth, and/or past dwelling place. I may in fact have wiped out the entire damn family! If so, good riddance, until the next bunch of tree rats finds my attic. ONLY THIS TIME, I AM MORE THAN READY. At any rate, you might be on to something with your "familial" theory. Hell, i don't know how many different squirrel families have lived in my attic over the years!
Thank you for your wonderful board, and your insight!
