Both of us had squirrels in the ductwork system

One day when my spouse was preparing dinner and I was learning the newspaper, I swore I heard something scrambling around in the ductwork.

I asked my spouse if she heard something strange, and she said she didn’t hear anything.

Then I heard the scrambling again and all of us both looked over at one of the Heating and Air Conditioning vents. I knew that all of us both heard the weird 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 think what it could be and my spouse asked if it could be rats in the ductwork. I didn’t love the sound of that, even though I absolutely didn’t jump to conclusions. I absolutely opened the Heating and Air Conditioning vent and put my PC 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, even though 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 entirely have a solid proposal of action anyway, however 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 animal control to get this squirrel out of there. The guy told us it wasn’t just one squirrel, however many squirrels. He set a few traps at the weird Heating and Air Conditioning vents with food inside, and one by one he was able to catch the squirrels. I wish I would have thought of that! He said when he was done that all of us should have the ductwork cleaned and resealed to prevent further issues with critters.
