Over the last few weeks we noticed three squirrels running around the roof and sides of the house. They looked like youngsters, probably this spring's litter. Upon closer inspection, we noticed one of them enter a gap in the soffits. The critter made its way inside the walls and ceiling. We didn't want to seal the gap in the soffits yet as we weren't sure if there were squirrels still inside. For now we set up a live trap and the other morning one was caught and then released in a park several miles away. My understanding is that even if we catch all these squirrels, new squirrels will move in from other areas. Other than waiting awhile to make sure there are no squirrels in the soffits and then sealing the gap, how can we minimize the possibility that new squirrels won't enter the soffits or house again?
