This is year 3 (that I'm aware of) with the squirrels in the roof beams. Our ceiling is our roof, but the middle beam running the length of the house, the A in the front, the A in the back, and the center A are two beams with a small space between the whole length. I heard what must be the mother at the back A and middle beam intersection back in December, around Christmas time. Then some weeks later, heard the babies, then the babies running back and forth, back and forth. First year, they must have gotten out themselves without getting into the house. Last year, we had a hole in the sheetrock against the middle beam, up high (my son's basketball hoop on the front door put a hole up high in the wall) and they got into the house through that hole. We chased them outside, killed one inside. That was June of 2014. Anyway, now the babies are getting into a bedroom where the middle A runs. What is the best way to trap the babies now that they are getting into the house? I put some glue traps up there (there is a shelf like area because of the closet in the adjoining bedroom), should I use rat traps also? The wire trap I think is too big for the babies to trip. I'm also worried the mother will somehow get in, although she didn't get in the large hole in the wall last year. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. Joan
