The news that a squirrel or other small creature is stuck or living in one’s attic or other removed area of a home is most disconcerting because the property owner must decide to kill or not kill the creature. The preferred solution is to safely remove the creature from the home without killing or injuring it because the bodies of these wee animals emit dangerous toxins that can negatively impact the health of homeowners. To identify such a small creature invasion, the homeowner needs to hire an environmentally friendly pest management professional who, in turn, uses “enviro” methods and products to safely remove the creature.
