I got to thinking, I had mentioned that I shoot the squirrels with my BB gun, and I omitted something, that they were also tearing up the outside of my house. They chew on the parts of the house where the roof begins, they have also have gotten into our attic, they have chewed two (LARGE) places on each side of the front of our house, so they are really destructive.
We planted way too many oak trees over 30 years ago, so it's kind of our fault, but we were young (and stupid) back then, so that is what attracts ours.
I just didn't want to be thought of as heartless, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do.
By the way, we tried trapping ours too, they won't go for that, we have successfully trapped many, many feral cats with the same cages though.
(Which we has spayed and neutered, then released)
Carry on, I don't want to deter this anymore than I already have, but to say one last thing, eventually, the squirrels will find the place home, and when they do, the multiply VERY quick!
