It’s time for round three of Doug’s war against the squirrels. A quick recap of previous battles of wit had Doug nailing a board over the entrance the squirrels chewed into the attic which the squirrels promptly chewed through again. Doug-0 squirrels-1 Doug then tossed an entire box of mothballs all over the attic, which chased squirrels AND humans out of the house for days. Let’s call that round a tie. Now, the squirrels are in the attic AND the wood stove. While part of me would like to just give them food and live in harmony with them, another part of me wants to borrow one of my father’s guns, nail the little buggers and hang their corpses from the eaves as a warning to future house-hunting squirrels.
