One-way pest door

Lets critters out, but not in.

This is a simple patch made out of sheet metal, that has a smallish door in it. The door could be cone-style, or flap style. The sheet metal can be trimmed to fit nicely over the hole in your roof or eaves where the squirrel/ polecat/raccoon enters your house.

There's no need to flush the critter out, or wait till it leaves, simply patch the hole with this device. The next time your uninvited guest goes out for dinner, it'll have to search for a new home as well (or another entrance into yours).

       It's be a shame if it had laid eggs or left babies, and was going out to collect food...   

       Btw, if we knew how they got in, the holes would already be boarded over.

       We have a hole in one of our eaves that I didn't notice until I heard the squirrel in the wall, and went looking for it.

//There's no need to flush the critter out ...// - Damn right - just sell the house.

       I'm afraid you will have to flush that critter out [phlish].

       Reminds me of another idea on halfbakery, a one-way mosquito screen. See link.
