Dead critter in roof vent pipe/how to remove?

Posted by sellerinm (My Page) on

I suspected my main vent pipe (no cover) was clogged, as weve had squirrel problems in the past, I ran a 20' auger down there to explore, & sure enough came up with a few squirrel hairs on the end. Any ideas on how to remove without pushing it down more & making it worse?

Maybe a shop vac with a very long hose? It's possible you can find someone that will do it for you too and that would be my choice!
