  1. I have a suspicion that a squirrel or squirrels nest has made it’s way into my chimney. Last night i heard some type of scampering in the walls and last year when i bought the house i was informed during the inspection that there was a nest, which i had cleared out. I’m not sure that a cap was placed on the chimney at that time and now i’m a little concerned. What would you recommend i do?


  2. Call an exterminator because in most cases it is not a squirrel coming into the chimney though it could be. But saying that, it could be a squirrel has gotten down there and found an open void but its very unlikely. Rodent problems can be obnoxious. I had to evict 14 raccoons off of my property last year, and it wasn’t cheap! Happy hunting. – Clay
