When I put a new roof on my garage , I decided it might be cool to make a 'Birdhouse' Cupola ,

Wouldn't artificial holes be more practical?

 

 


i nearly left my wrist & hand behind when i snatched it back out the way , then to realise it was only the lizard asleep on it

I think if 'Liz' spends anymore time on here, he should get his own username.

I am not sure I follow you on this?

 

As for the Squirrels - the red squirrels are more destructive , they are not mean , I have two dogs that chase them around the yard but they have never caught one , I spray the yard every year for flea's and other pests . The tree rats (squirrels) got into my garage and chewed the covers off of my golf clubs a couple 3 winters ago and I waged war on them that summer killing over a dozen of them with a BB gun. After that they give me a wide cushion and know the sound of a Crossman .22 pump pellet gun. I kind of feel guilty about it so I let them nest there now , but there were just too many . Now there is just the one pair and their kids , they ran last years litter off so I only have two greys around . If the population gets to be too much I will thin it out some more . There is no shortage of them here.

If you don't have real holes the squirrels can't get in.
