Default Squirrel Problem

Click the image to open in full size.

I have 5 walnut trees within 30 yards of my house.
Every tree in my yard and all my neighbors yards
have squirrel nests. At least FIVE nests a tree.

I guess the squirrel population has boomed and
they need to expand their housing. I have a couple
that have chewed holes in my eaves and have taken
up residence in my house.

I fixed the holes with chicken wire and even tried to spray
a squirrel repelant concoction I got off the internet. It
did not work.

I did a little research and there is a guy in Richland Center
called Terry Sime that does pest removal. I thought the name
was familiar. I called him and low and behold he is a Gays Mills
Guy. MY HOMETOWN.

Terry lent me one of his live traps and it is already in place on the roof.

If I catch any I will drive them way out in the country and let them go.
There are lots of squirrels in the area. I will update this squirrel fiasco
daily for a week on my blog.

Default Your problem might be more serious than you think.

Squirrels, as you have found, will damage your house, and they are rodents. All rodents chew to wear down their constantly growing teeth. Squirrels are a prime source of home fires; they chew the insulation off the electrical wires in attics. They also attack roofs.

You might want to either get professional help or increase your trapping. If it were my house, I would take the fight to them with a quality pellet rifle and traps.

Len: When I lived in Alaska I had a dog that loved to chase squirrels and occasionally would bring a tail or a dead one back to the house, it used to freak out the wife.

Squirrels are one of the leading causes of house fires due them constantly chewing on things. Electrical wires are one of their favorite things to chew on.

Dear Mr Spinner,I live in the south of France,I'm a charming red squirrel and I lost my loving husband who was ran over by a car( Mr JP owner of the garden where I live kept his tail to tie flies).I'd be glad to meet an american squirrel although they're grey.Waiting forward to your reply.
Best regards.
Mrs Redsqui.
