...I don't think it's squirrels, I'm positive Al Gore said it was acid rain, caused buy global warming, caused by gun owning anti-establishment coal burning revolutionists :D

A weasel got in here one winter a few years ago. Didn't do any damage like those "squirrels" but got to say the cats were not that thrilled to go after it! :o

Squirrels are rodents. Their teeth constantly grow and must be worn down so they chew. You should see the damage they can do when they find their way into a home or attic. I've seen a vacant home where one got in through the firepalce chimney. They freak out trying to escape. This little guy chewed every piece of window sill, baseboard, door casing and cabinet in the house.

Live traps work very well. Once you catch one you then drown the little bugger in a barrel of water. I found a peanut butter and Ritz cracker mix works pretty well. Though South Shore squirrels may like something differant than North Shore squirrels.

If you need a live trap I am happy to loan you one. If the thought of drowning the little buggers bothers you, your next best bet is a 12 gauge. :D

& for those that have never done it... you just toss trap and all in the pond night & then go watch an hour of TV. That's how my sis in law says good bye to skunks. Sometimes she relocates them but sometimes the relocation in under daisy roots.

I prefer the target practice or training some would call it. :) I had some mighty epic battles with chipmunks or ground squirrels at home last year. I used a cheap crosman pellet gun. Use the right tool for the game I say, I don't need no stinking rocket launcher for a squirrel. :rambo2: I did see a video about some guys that put bait on a trap thrower and flung the poor critter WAY out in the woods. Probably on youtube, called squirrel-a-pult.
