Stop it, Squirrel

There’s a squirrel that keeps scratching near a window and the sound manages to resonate throughout the entire room. They haven’t made any progress in terms of damage or breaking in, but it happens every morning.

Illustration for article titled Stop it, Squirrel

Every time I go outside, it runs up and over the roof and jumps on a tree and is gone. So... Possible solutions...

1) Chicken wire of some sort over the area where it scratches.

2) Any number of liquids and sprays that deter rodents (though I assume they will wash off in a short period of time)


3) Airsoft pistol
