What about a pellet gun???

Have-a-heart live trap with peanut butter. Sheridan or other high power low noise air rifle. Call the exterminator and get hosed but avoid the headache,

You better make sure you get his little body out of there, or you're headed for a stinky few weeks!

Maybe you could charm him out with your magic flute, or poison the little bastard. Just an idea.

Nailed one again the day before yesterday. Tool used: a Crosman CO2 pistol, loaded with .177 diabolos. Make sure you have a rather fresh CO2 cartridge installed, those suckers wear pellet-proof vests with trauma-plates. Aiming right behind the ribcage seems to be the way to go, head and chest seem to be unpenetrable, at least for CO2 powered projectiles in .177. Don't wait for the bugger to stop, they can feel the sights lining up on them; so you'll have to lead'em some. Wear gloves when checking on the corpse, those teeth hurt; the critter is also bug-infested and probably carries other diseases. Hail Nimrod!

Aguilla Colibris, out of a .22 rifle, sounds like a pellet gun, but will definately take out squirrels at "CQB" range. good luck with your "super rat"

For the coup de gras, I suggest a bayonet.

Aimless - I'm having trouble envisioning exactly how/where the little bugger is, but try opening up the area of flashing where the critter got in, so he's got a clean path to get out. Get up in the attic and bang the ceiling and make noise to try and frighten him out. Some peanut butter at the exit might help. Once he's out, seal up the place good. You don't want to kill the little bastard up there and not be able to get the corpse out. Like Chimborazo said, you'll be stuck with a wicked funk for a while if you do.

Good luck with the squirrel. I hope you have better luck than I do with squirrels. I have yet to kill one with less than 2 shots. One I shot at about 10 yards with a beautiful upper center chest shot with a 36 grain .22 cal hollowpoint. Knocked the little guy flat on his back I thought it was perfect. Then the little thing got back up, and I shot him while he was crawling in the neck. He kept going til I set the muzzle right on his head and finished the poor guy. I can't understand why the first round didn't kill him, it went in and did not exit(therefore using almost all of its 133 ft/lbs on the squirrels chest). Anyway, I can't understand how any one would shoot a squirrel with an air gun, I would never be that cruel.

Well, if it was up to me, I would go after them with the Karabiner 98k, loaded with steelcore ammo, but backstop and noise are to be considered, too.

Well Canadiangunnut....I have killed many a tree rat with a cheap russian break pellet gun.. Cotton tails as well.. They worked great hunting in Ottawa!

Whatever you do, DON'T poison him. He will just crawl into some inaccessible place and leave a nice odor.

Try using a blowgun the next time you're outside. You'll develope skills of patience and aim, not to mention the amusement you'll get from wacthing the critter run as though nothing happened and then later (drop within a minute) passout from loss of blood. If you're lucky, you might be able to retrieve your dart to use on another wiley, yet leary critter. If not, the darts are fairly inexpensive. Hi Ho, Hi Ho, it's hunting I shall go!

I've killed MANY squirrels and rabbits with my Crosman .22 cal pump pellet pistol. Make sure to get the hunting/game point pellets otherwise they'll just bounce off the little buggers. The .22 pellet leaves the barrel doing between 800-900 fps (10 pumps) and WILL mess 'em up. You can also overpump (not the safest thing to do)for over 1000 fps.
