How can you get squirrels out of your attic?
Use a squirrel trap, you can get them at the local outdoor/farm store. Answer I tried the Evictor Strobe Lights.... holes left open for 3 years...squirrels never returned.

It's crucial to find out where they are getting in and out (yes, they go out for water and food). Once you find the entry hole(s), you can mount a special repeater trap or a o…ne-way exclusion door right on the hole. The repeater trap will trap all the squirrels in one shot, and the exclusion door will let them out, but not back in. It's vital to make sure that any secondary holes are sealed shut, or else this won't work. Another option is to set several small cage traps on the roof (under eaves) and bolted to fascia boards, to trap them all. But cage traps aren't nearly as efficient, and they often don't fully succeed, and they can catch non-target squirrels. Once all squirrels are definitely out, and any trapped squirrels are relocated at least five miles away, you can seal up the primary entry hole. You will also want to clean up their feces and nesting material, and check for electrical wire damage. But wait! It's not always so simple. Squirrels go into attics to give birth to a litter of young. You must deal with the baby squirrels in the correct manner For more information visit: http://www.squirrel-attic.com/
Squirrels and other rodents are very good at squeezing through tiny holes and cracks, and they like being inside out of the weather. An attic is even better than a hollow tree… to a squirrel - they don't understand that you don't want them in your house! Somewhere in the attic, you have a hole or crack that they have crawled into, and have probably chewed it until it is larger so it will be comfortable.
This happened to me. You know if you here something that sounds like a nut rolling around on the floor. Also, listen for somthing that sounds like tiny pairs of paws running a…round.
All holes and potential chew points must be sealed and/orreinforced with sheet metal to be sure the little guys will notchew or claw their way in. If they are already inside y…ou want tochase them out before you seal the holes! Using moth balls or foxurine will sometimes cause them to relocate outside.
Look for the way that they got in and wait till they go out to look for food then block the hole. Usually squirrels will nest in the spring and summer so wait till fall or win…ter to do this.
Contains., As much as they can livfe their lives to

Try getting a squirrel trap from your local outdoors/farm store and set it up.
they got into your attic by either keeping it open or finding a way to the attic from outside.
maybe but i think they rather live in the wild it would not be very comon :)
of course they can. They can build nests, and many other things.
You will not have flying squriles in your atic. they need nature to survive
Flying squirrels are much less destructive than grey squirrels.....but still they tend to chew on wires running through the attic, so it is not a good idea to allow them to li…ve there.
call an exterminator Get a plate with about 500g of Hydrogen Cyanide and pour it into an aluminium pot. Get a portable hotplate and bring it to you into the attic. Place the… plate onto the stove and turn it on. Make sure you have good ventilation for fastest effect. Remember to bring an airtight hazmat suit and a gas mask.
