    I used to own a feed store and sold a product called "fox urine." And yes it is exactly that! Tell your friend to go to a local feed store or a lawn center that specializes in organic products. Take a couple of those little 35mm film canisters & put a few small holes in them. Put a few cotton balls in them & pour a little of the fox urine in it and throw it in the crawl space or attic. Wala-they're gone! IT works on all kinds of little critters. Racoons, skunks, squirrels, etc. Anything that would be a natural enemy. One word of advice though! Do not get it one yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Nasty! Wear plastic gloves. Hope that helps him! Let me know! :waving:

    Problem? No way its called dinner time. Down here there is a season to hunt em. We would be frying them boys up and just consider their invasion of our property their "cominng over for dinner". Check your local laws tho. If need be get some live traps and release em in wild. Animal control may even have traps they will leave with you.

    If they just say deal with em a nice .22 or even a good pellet gun will thin out the population.

    That is true! Knew a farmer that would throw the trap in the stock tank for 5 minutes, then "attempt" to release it. Never saw anything get up and run away. Terrible way to go though!!!
