Sometimes you need to call an expert in their field.
A DIY project, when it comes to wildlife encroaching on your territory, doesn’t work
Living across the street from the park and having beautiful deciduous trees makes it a terrific place for squirrels to live. Great. So long as they stay in the trees!
I am really glad it isn’t bats.
The box gutter had a large hole around the downspout, chewed by a critter(s). When I got home from my midwinter break I heard the scurrying of little paws outside my bedroom window but inside the wooden box gutter. It’s an old house.
Yesterday, I had to call Pete Cappa of Cappa Wildlife Control Services. Within 24 hours he arrived to assess the situation.When we were settling up, he told me about being bitten right down to the bone of his thumb by a squirrel and how much it hurt.
I asked him if I could photograph him for my People at Work series and he graciously agreed. Thanks Pete. And you might notice on his website he does not deal with cats or dogs.
“Specializing in the humane removal of nuisance wildlife!”
He got out this critter in the trap from the back of his truck for the photo. From someone else’s home.
I didn’t want my home to become Grey Gardens.
