There is this loud gnawing, scuffling, scratching going on in my attic right over my head where I am typing at this very minute. It usually happens around 5pm. Since I don't believe in hungry bone-chewing ghosts, I think it must be a squirrel, raccoon, possum, rat, or mouse. EWWWWWW.
If I put out rat bait and it dies, what if there are babies in my attic? Then will the babies die in my attic? And stink?
I like baby squirrels, but outside in the trees where they belong.
If I put out rat bait and the dying creature crawls out into my yard seeking water and my dogs get it, they might get poisoned.
