Make them the size of a marble.
Ground squirrels don't live on the East Coast... this is why jjthink doesn't understand. Ground Squirrels are a special treat just for the west coast, california in particular (I am from the Bay Area and only recently moved).
ground squirrels are horrible, overpopulated rodents that live in holes in the ground and DEVASTATE gardens and orchards and have zillions of babies and carry many diseases. They are particularly known for carrying the black plague... yes, like the one from Europe in medieval times. They are nasty critters and can transmit diseases to other animals and people and are truly devastating to yards and gardens, etc. They are a huge pest. I battled with them constantly when I was there. And they're not cute - more like fat rats with slightly fuzzy tails. Nasty buggers.
Tree squirrels are fine, and I actually like rats when they aren't causing me problems... but ground squirrels? Blech.
If you do run out of ground squirrels, come to Alabama, we have them here by the truck loads-----pesky little boogers!!!
