Unexpected tenants

I posted a few weeks back about my new neighbours. It turns out we have a lot of neighbours, and this week, we learned that we also have tenants. On Monday we heard noises in our roof, including the scampering of little feet, scratching and chewing. 

Today, we learned a mom squirrel and at least 3 babies have found a way into our attic. While working in the yard, we watched them come and go.

Tragically, much as I love squirrels, they are not welcome in my attic. In addition, we are zoned R1 and are not allowed to have tenants in our house under the local bylaws. We contacted an exterminator eviction squad today.

If it makes you feel any better, squirrel mortality is about 78% in the first year in the wild.
