This is what some people want. They don't want the critters but they don't want to harm them either. They want to get rid of them naturally. If that is the case, here are a few suggestions:

Repellants - Squirrels have natural enemies with one of them being the fox. Because of this, many manufacturers make repellants from fox urine or something very similar smelling. Other manufacturers  have other products made to repel the pesty little critters.

If you want to try something that you can get at  your local grocery store, try moth balls. This is a quick, simple and cheap method.

If you were to search the net, you would read many many instances of people using moth balls to keep the squirrels away. Back a hundred (or two) years ago, moth balls were very popular. However, as mentioned above the use of moth balls is 'dissed' by many as being totally worthless. Only by trying will you know for sure.

Lastly, you can use a "live trap" to get rid of squirrels. A "live trap" is where you catch them safely in a cage and then take them somewhere to release them.

Depending on how quick you want to get rid of the squirrels you can place the trap out in the yard (or wherever) and prop the door open such that it can't shut and trap the squirrel. By doing this you are giving the squirrels the chance to get used to the cage without being afraid of it.

Then after they have been exposed to it for a while, put some nice bait in it (like peanut butter) and you'll probably have your pest trapped within a short period of time.

You have just read a few methods to get rid of squirrels naturally. None of them are inhumane or will hurt the squirrel. You just have to give one or two a try and see how they work. Some of them are really not that expensive to try so you don't have much to lose, but much experience to gain.

Raccoons have no manners! They're slobs and the one staring at me didn't seem to really care about the niceties of eating. Bits of dry cat food were soaking up water from where it had been sloshed out of the water bowl. The bag of food I'd laid on a table was now torn open and about 10 pounds of cat chow was strewn across the floor.

This particular raccoon had come in through the pet door into the garage and was happily eating leftovers from my cat Spike's dinner bowl. He obviously had no fear of me, because he kept eating as I walked over to the work bench. Even though he appeared to half tamed, I was trying to keep a little distance between me and the raccoon.

Spike has a bed in the garage, in the house and on the deck. Whenever and wherever the mood strikes him to take a nap, he's not very far from a comfortable pillow. He has become adjusted to seeing raccoons and possums enter his garage at all hours of the night. Tonight he was sleeping on the bed that used to be my work bench before he took it over. He was now peering over the side of the cardboard box that was his bed, at the raccoon that was making a mess of his eating area.

I may have to try trapping the animal, but that didn't work out very well last year. I used a gage-like trap that is supposed to close the entry way into the cage when the animal tries to eat the canned cat food in the back of the cage. It's very humane. Of the five raccoons we had last year, none were caught. I did catch Spike...twice. I've never accused him of being smart!

If you have a 'possum get into your house, the best thing to do is to put a can of cat food just outside the door and let the animal go to the food. Then slam the door shut! They may scare you by hissing and snarling, but that's just their defensive mechanism. It's sort of scary when they bare their fifty teeth, but more than likely if you back away, they'll never hurt you. One good thing about confrontations with a 'possum is that they hardly ever get rabies.

I really hope they'll leave soon. Spike and I would like to get our garage back.

If you're looking for bat exterminators, good luck. There are many professional services out there that will help with bat removal in humane ways, but very few, if any, services that will actually recommend or support killing bats as a solution to getting rid of them. Bats are wild animals, and the only reason that they come into people's homes is because their territory is being overtaken by urban sprawl and suburban living in previously wild areas. Thus, it is their nature to seek shelter where they can and when their habitat is destroyed, your home will look like a nice nest for any bat family.

Bat exterminators are not a good choice even if you do find them. There are many reasons that you shouldn't kill bats as a means of getting rid of them. First of all, it is illegal in many places to poison bats, so that is out of the question. Also, killing bats because they came into your home is counter-productive. After all, people are the ones taking over the bats' habitat, so they should expect to run into problems from time to time.

Another reason that you shouldn't kill bats or hire bat exterminators that will is because you can humanely return them to the wilderness without throwing off their entire ecosystem. You don't have to kill bats if you work with a professional service that can provide you with an effective bat exclusion process. Bats are actually good for the environment because they eat bugs and other small pests that can invade your homes and cause problems. Just let the bats live, and give them a humane exit from your home with professional bat removal services.

To find a bat removal professional that isn't among the few bat exterminators, you don't have to look very far. In the pest control industry, most of the professionals that deal with bats will suggest humane removal of bats from the home and deter you from harming or killing the bats if at all possible. Generally speaking, bats will have to leave your home to find food, and when they do, the bat control devices that professional removal specialists will install will keep them from coming back in when they want to return to their nest. Thus, you should find a bat removal specialist instead of bat exterminators to take care of your bat problems in a much nicer way.
