I took a call from a out of breath, noticeably upset, and frantic customer who had a wild squirrel running around her house. Needless to say she wanted immediate advice on how to get it out. I suggested she open all the doors & windows then monitor the situation to see if it left. I told her to call me back with an update & if it still did not leave then we would dispatch a specialist.
She called back 15min later to say the squirrel bolted right out the front door. I was curious but I also wanted to make sure there were no issues on how the squirrel got in so I asked “Do you know how it got in?” Much calmer & laughing hysterically she said I know exactly how it got in…..
“Our family got our Christmas tree last night and since it was late we left it on the back deck until today. I brought the tree in the house and a squirrel leaped out of it. I screamed at the top of my lungs HOLY S##**! and nearly had a heart attack! I am sure that if the squirrel could talk his reaction would have been the same as mine!”
There you go, another zany pest control story….certainly more to come.
