"I have had a problem of squrrels entering my attic through the soffit of the roof where the attached storage sheds roof joins my home's roof for some time now. I wanted to use chicken wire to prevent their entrance but I'm afraid that I might also prevent their "exit" if some are already in the attic as when I seal it up. I used some of the green bars that exterminators use to make them drink water until they die (there's no water in my attic, so I figured that would effectively get rid of them), but all that did was kill one of them (that I actually saw, anyway). I don't want to hear the scratching above my bedroom ceiling at 4:00 a.m. anymore and I don't want all the things that I have stored in my attic to continue to be chewed or scratched up (not to mention the structure of the attic itself being chewed up as well).Can you help me?"
