Pest Control/squirrels


I live in an apartment on the 1st Floor. I hear squirrels  in the crawl spaces between the floors I have talked to the Manager about this problem.They had put some Coyote pee up on the roof,but did not
resolve the issue.They are so noisy they wake me up,and they also do some tapping at night.Could you suggest something that I can tell the Manager. This gives me the creeps.

Thank You!!!!!!!!

My publication should work.

I would be more concerned over the destruction to the insulation and the risk of the squirrel gnawing electrical wires. Make sure your smoke alarms have working batteries.

I was a professional animal damage controller. If you are having problems with squirrels, raccoons, beavers, moles, voles, etc. damaging your property, I can help give you information to resolve that damage. I was an assistant editor for Wildlife Control Technology magazine and have published numerous articles as well as two books in this field.


Former assistant editor for Wildlife Control Technology; Master's degree in Hebrew Bible (yes I am licensed minister), Past New England Director for the National Wildlife Control Operator's Association. I have published two books, The Wildlife Removal Handbook (rev. ed) and the Wildlife Damage Inspection Handbook, and numerous articles. Perhaps a highlight was making the cover of Wildlife Control Technology. I have debated a noted animal rights activist in my own state of Massachusetts on radio and TV.
