For the past 2 weeks something in my ceiling has been making noise. At first it was a little scratching, then it turned to fast running. Last night the monster ran very fast and sounded heavy, much heavier then a mouse, maybe a rat. Anyways it’s been knocking small bricks/rocks down the side of the walls and really annoying me, but what can I do. If I throw rat poison up there, it will die and start decaying and smell up the place. How can I exorcize the demon in my ceiling?
rent a cat? Is there any access up there where you can get a peek/reach in or something? Yes, you don’t want a big stink: Whatever is up there should come out… preferably feet first.
My buddy in Vermont used to catch his varmints with a Hav-a-hart trap… and then attach a rope to the trap and throw it in the river!
wow, i really can’t believe it! I also had the same problem in my office in Linkou. I heard a loud yowling in the ceiling for about two weeks at random moments, the sound resembled a cat, but it didn’t really sound like a cat. However, I have not heard it in awhile. WEIRDDDDDD. Ratlung and I also decided it was a monster. We opened a ceiling tile and I have one of those mosquito racquets next to me in case it decides to pay me a visit.
Perhaps look into some sort of hyper-sonic device that drives vermin away?
Take off and nuke the site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
Might be some ninjas running across your rooftop chasing some pirates or something.
Or perhaps a large hamster.
Alright, I’ll come down. All you needed to have done was send me a PM. No need to embarrass me infront of all the other posters.
Gee, thanks Frost.
My ceiling-rats used to have big fights at nights. That sounded a lot worse than just running and gnawing…
I suspect that it’s Tigerman doing that so that you can understand the meaning of unknow fear of something that is out of your control… (j/k)
There is some rat poison available that will dry the little guy up and he will not make a stink. Sorry I don’t know the name but you can google it. The other option is just a big rat trap with a bait on it. Easy enough, you have to unscrew a ceiling fixture(light) and you’ll have easy access. Just set the trap next to the hole and tie a string to it dangling from the ceiling. You’ll hear it if you’re there when it happens and you can unscrew the fixture again and pull on the string to check. Often a trap will not kill the rat immediately so I strongly recommend the string method.
It’s just the guys getting the tape from the camera that is filming your every move. I wouldn’t worry about it.
Just don’t lie on the bed with a beautiful girl and masturbate like a monkey or the gangsters will arrive demanding you pay up or they’ll release the tape.

So you also think it’s Tigerman?
I used to have a similar problem. Then I got a cat.
How does having a cat stop you from masturbating? On second thoughts, I’d prefer not to know.

The same way a sheep does my dear lass
I’ll go look at the supermarket for something, but I don’t hear him everyday. I think he might stop off here sometimes as he makes his tour of the building.
A couple of weeks ago I hear one scratching in the ceiling. I found out where he was a BAM smacked the ceiling really hard. Either killed him or scared him to death. Over the next 5 days I smelled something really bad. Luckly I can’t smell it anymore.
Yup. Five days is about the typical drying-out time for rat hersheys.

Yeah, I couldn’t think of “ultra” for some reason. At least I didn’t say “supersonic”.
