    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.

    Convince it to come out by using a female squirrel as bait and then go special ops on it with a kabar. Just kidding :D. 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. :D ;)

    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 think it would be difficult to live trap it. Opening the door might let it out, then you have squirrel loose in the house.

    We don't see many of those here, but my cats seem to consider them a delicacy.
    One cat sat at the base of the nest tree most every night for months waiting for a bite.

    You don't open the door to the trap until you get it outside. ;)
