Temporary and permanent solutions to the nesting of squirrels.
The squirrels nested in this handy cavity, and made quite a mess. They were noisy as they scrambled on the plastic surface, and their droppings were falling around the carport.
Anne looked in the internet to see how to drive them away. "Vinegar" was the promised temporary solution. It seemed to work as she mopped a vinegar solution onto the the deck so it would seep through and onto the squirrels. It may also have been that the babies were old enough to me moved.
Anne is concerned that the car will now get dripped on whenever it rains. We will see if this is a problem. If it is we could then put some kind of covering in the deck floor.
