Ive seen where animals have gotten into homes when they are being built
and concealed by sheetrock where they die..... and squirrels can get
anywhere... I had a squirrel get into a wall of my house a few years
ago...it was a wall in a stairwell leading down to my basement....I had
heard some scratching and movement in there one evening.... I ended up
tearing half a sheet off the wall to liberate the squirrel.... Wish we
had a video camera to tape me trying to chase the squirrel back out of
the house....that poor animal went all thru house...I finally had to
open every door in the house...during the winter.... and just kept
chasing that idiot till he finally ran out the door.
Later that same winter I came upon a squirrel in the basement sitting
on the wash sink....again I opened the basement doors but still ended
up chasing him thru the house.
At one point he ended up on a bookshelf in my workshop and I walked up
to the bench and actually spoke to the squirrel for a couple of minutes
while we caught our breath....he just sat there and didnt repond of
course.....then the chase was back on and he finally ran out the door
instead of running past it.
