Thanks. However, I have no intention of doing this work myself. I found one more new carcass today. I think he was the one I could not shoot and died from poison. He is laying down on the eaves. The area where they hung out is right over our bedroom which has a 3' high coffered ceiling. In the attic over this first floor part of our house, it slopes down one side of the coffered ceiling to a foot from the eaves which are then several inches lower and further out. I cannot reach their nesting area or the dead critter from on top of the coffered ceiling and I am not about to slide down the slope on top of the insulation nor accidentally step through the ceiling between the joists. The house roof is above and also sloping to that exact same point with the spacing narrowing as you move closer to their nesting area. At age of 70 I am not quite as flexible as I once was and, if I can pay someone to do this work and who has the right equipment to get at places the body cannot reach, then I am happy to pay them to do it. So I need the name of the "type" of company that does this sort of work so I can search them on the internet or the yellow pages. I live in a rather remote area in NC so I doubt if I will find someone locally who really knows what they are doing. I would appreciate a lead in the right direction from you. Thanks.
