LOL. If I wanted to relocate my squirrels, it would be a full time job. As I look out my front window right now, there are at least a dozen on the lawn. I've got a bunch of huge oaks. They thrive on the acorns. Over the years I have watched their population rise and fall with the acorn crop. Some years there are not very many acorns and some years it's tough to walk on the lawn. Last couple years were good acorn years so we are up to our ass in squirrels.

I think the first reaction of most to kill em says something about our species.

well, if they were all climbing your house and ripping out shingles and windows and hopping up on the roof looking down on you smiling while they beat their chests like lil' gorillas you might think the same way toothy

I just think they are rodents, they are not endangered, there are literally millions of them, and they have no redeeming value unless you eat them. Ok, they can ride little bikes and surfboards in videos, but not all are that talented.

Now were talkin' :idea: ... i never even heard of this stuff but just googled it. does it kill squirrels or simply make them hate my shed? It says its tinted blue in color so im a lil' worried it might make my shed blue, but if it can kill the buggers then maybe i just broadcast it on the ground?

Put gloves on, mix it with some peanut butter or whatever is on their menu. It drops raccoons and possums within 5 feet.

dcrane,
You're in the relocating business. Maybe you could gather up the critters some night and relocate 'em to coalkirks front yard. From the sounds of it, they would blend right in. toothy

Dcrane :D
a little fyi...
Golden Malrin will def kill em... but it will also kill whatever eats the dead squirrel.
So if you got a dog ( that you like...lol :D )
... make sure you can dispose of the squirrel before your dog does!
... also lethal to humans... especially children... so be careful.
... I know I know. . this all goes without saying

... by the way- did you know that Chuck Norris puts Golden malrin in his coffee...- instead of salt !! :D :D

That looks like white cedar to me. You could try copper napthenate. Google that! I had a hard time finding it but you can send away for it. Get a pump sprayer and coat the wood with it. It's a wood preservative. Also an insecticide and carpenter bees, ants, squirrels will avoid it. Only drawback is it has a strong creosote-ish odor that lingers for a long time, like forever. you can paint over it though. Keep it off your skin, it's hard to remove and it'll soak into ya.
I got Black Flag brand, it's green, but it can be found in brown too under the brand name Copper Brown I think.

Hurry before Hillary Cloton gives your land to the UN :D
