Default I have an intruder in my house, need some advice on how to get rid of it

Somehow, a flying squirrel managed to get itself trapped in a closet and I have nothing that can get rid of it without putting a hole in the wall.

Suggestions?

If you don't mind killing it, you can mix peanut butter and rat poison, put it on some crackers and slide it under the door. I wouldn't do that if he could get into the walls though.

You can also put peanut butter in a live trap and side that in real quick like without letting the squirrel escape.

Do you have a fishing net? How about a cloths hamper with either a lid or a flat piece of cardboard or wood. Lure him into it then cover and remove to outside and release. Once it takes off towards the tree then you BLAST the crap out of it with some 3" #5 Turkey loads. Supreme High Velocity Turkey Ammo 12 Ga 3 1-3/4oz #5 Copper Plated Shot Box of 10

Convince it to come out by using a female squirrel as bait and then go special ops on it with a kabar. Just kidding . A live trap comes to mind. Try using pecans as bait (trust me, squirrels love them).

Wow... too many jokes about the name "hot fudge" and "trapped in the closet" to think of a viable solution to your problems right now.

I ended up tagging him with my pellet gun, didn't put a hole in anything but the squirrel, didn't get blood anywhere. I have pics and a video if anyone wants to see.

My step dad used to keep a pellet pistol in the bathroom, we would watch for mice while taking a load off.

I liked the live trap idea better.
