If you only leave your roof vent ajar, that is nowhere near enough ventilation, I would suggest you get an automatic vent opener, {various prices starting about £22} which will open and close as neccessary, and if this is the only vent you have, then leave the door open slightly as well, unless stray animals are likely to get in, but you definitely need more ventilation, Derek.

so will starve them a bit!!
