I have a room with side attics as the roof slopes down and these buggers have taken the insulation off about 25 feet to 2 1/2 feet high from the storage area that slopes to the gutter level. I know they already had at least a litter in the past year from noises in a wall between rooms. I had a new roof put on in March and all holes are sealed but I think they managed to get in through the roof vent (they disappear quickly when I have looked on the other side and that must be it), which means the guys cut the venting too big and they can get their heads through it!!!

I hear scratching in a wall that starts at 8 feet but slopes down to the floor quickly about 8 feet away and is triangle shaped on a corner of the house and they didn't put a small closet in there. It must connect through soffits or something to the other closets where the insulation is gone.

If I cut a hole in that wall the size of a HavaHart trap and place that just inside it and leave the rest in the room, is there a chance they will see the light and walk into the trap?

If so, should I line it with about 75% 1/4" wood so it doesn't see all that cage?

Thanks in advance.
Mike
