I can personally guarantee you that nothing in your attic will threaten your health, much less your life.
Optian A !
Not trying to make you feel too bad, but.........
Think of it like this.
We have our soldiers on the other side of the world clearing buildings and engaging in close quarters battle and possibly hand to hand combat.
Are you really going to let a squirrel back you down?
Are you not higher up on the food chain?
Take pride in your evoltionary rank.
This is your man vs beast moment,.
We have all had them.
One time I starred down a racoon. Yea that's right, he blinked. I am a Man!
Win! Make it your mission.
Don't go it alone. Grab a battle buddy.
Get a really bright flash light with a wide surface area lens. This can disorient the intruder.
Armor. Wear a helmet. Like a bicycle helmet. If this thing jumps on you, you don't want to bump your head on the rafters and knock yourself out.
Weapon. You need a long stick, with a net on it. You can probably pick one up at the swimming pool supply store.
If that doesn't work, grab a paintball gun and light hiss furry tail up.
Fatigues. Blue Jeans , Steel toe boots, and thick gloves.
You don't want to lose any "digits" in the process.
The rest is up to you.
When it is all said and done, we can all swap war stories and throw back some beer.
