Squirrel House

Did you know that if you run the squirrels out of your attic, and give them a new place to live, they will leave your attic alone? They are also territorial and will keep other squirrels from trying to move in. Who knew? House is made from cypress and stands 24” high by 13” wide by 10” deep. Interior has small ledges to aid in climbing. Access holes are 3 inches in diameter.

This should keep them busy for a while. I hope it works. Squirrels in the attic are not good.

Looks to me like that should make a nice home for those cute little rodents. I admire your creative solution to fix the ‘problem’.... and I bet it actually works.

A beautiful home for the squirrels. I know that it really works because you’re spoiling them. Great job!

Ha! All I could think of is that I have some neighbors with squirrels in the attic, and I’m not talking about their houses! LOL.

rrdesigns, I like that house! I need to build some of those for our groundskeeping.
