Well, the Squirrel Bloke came back yesterday, had a look in the loft and…
…nothing. No squirrels in the traps, no evidence that they’ve been even sniffing around. He suspects that all the unaccustomed activity up there has driven them away.
Fine by us. Either way they’re gone. He said he’ll come back in a week or so and check again and if there’s still no evidence of residency he’ll set to blocking up the access. Be interesting to see how he does that. When I had squiggles at my old Acton place I tried nailing fine mesh wire under the eaves but it wasn’t terribly satisfactory.
We shall see
To be continued.
