One day when our husbandy was preparing dinner and I was studying the newspaper, I swore I heard something scrambling around in the ductwork.
I asked our husbandy if he heard something strange, and he said he didn’t hear anything. Then I heard the scrambling again and the two of us both looked over at 1 of the Heating and Air Conditioning vents. I knew that the two of us both heard the strange noise this time around. So I went to investigate and I heard something run the other direction when I went to the Heating and Air Conditioning vent. I didn’t feel what it could be and our husbandy asked if it could be rats in the ductwork. I didn’t care about the sound of that, although I absolutely didn’t jump to conclusions. I absolutely opened the Heating and Air Conditioning vent and put our iPhone in there to take a picture. With the picture, I saw that there was a squirrel down inside the ductwork looking scared as could be. I was thankful that it wasn’t rats, although I had to get this little guy out of the ductwork. After numerous failed attempts, I realized that this was far more challenging than I imagined. I didn’t undoubtedly have a solid plan of action anyway, and even if I did get him out of the ductwork, how was I going to get him out of the house? I ended up calling creature control to get this squirrel out of there. The guy told us it wasn’t just 1 squirrel, however numerous squirrels. He set a few traps at the weird Heating and Air Conditioning vents with food inside, and 1 by 1 he was able to catch the squirrels. I wish I would have thought of that! He said when he was done that the two of us should have the ductwork cleaned and resealed to prevent further concerns with critters.
