Every now and then I run into squirrels in an attic. Sometimes I have advance warning that they might be there. This is what advance warning might look like, at least it did today:
This cute couple had made a fine home in the attic by pushing insulation into a little igloo. They were pretty safe. The house has been empty for some time. They could come and go at will through the hole you see here. They had done a lot of damage to the wood inside and outside the attic. They can also do damage to wiring, although I did not see any.
The whole time I thought,
"THIS IS JUST NUTS...!"
