    We've just managed to get rid of a squirrel which invaded my house about 56 hours ago and hid behind the dishwasher in the kitchen. Last night we left the door open and a few peanuts by the door to let it out - the peanuts were gone but not the squirrel, it didn't seem to want its freedom. Pest control couldn't dislodge the thing but they poked it a fair bit and it came out a few hours later. I'm glad its gone.
    So what pests have you had in your house if any?
    (By the way, never feed squirrels peanuts or eat them near them or it might invade your house :rolleyes: )

    Well thats a bit crap really isnt it! Theyre so damn annoying! We had a veritable infestation in the doorframes nothing that a bit of Nippon didnt solve :cool:

    Squirrels? You think you've got a problem. You want to try wasps nests in your roof. We're talking wasps crawling out of the light fittings when you're in the shower.

    Right now they've tunnelled under our window frame in the kitchen, causing us to have ant powder in each corner, and a light dusting over the whole window sil, just incase. I came home once to find them covering the corner of the window ledge thing, crawling over one and other *shivers* there must have been 100, easily...

    Foxes are vicious *******s. I suppose at least if you leave food out, you'll have an easier shot at them when they come.

    They're a pest when they start using your pots and pans as their new toilet!
