I have at least five squirrels nesting in trees surrounding my yard (suburban area) and they are really losing their fear of man. Even though I throw something at them every time I see them they don't care. The other day I was working on a chicken feeder and had it on a workbench outside my garage and I was les than 10ft away and a squirrel climbed right up and began eating the feed. He didn't even run when I shouted. I had to actually go at him and throw something. Even then he did not go far. Killing is difficult because of very close neighbors I don't have a trap I need suggestions that are safe for my girls but will rid me of these tree rats. If need be I will find a way to kill them but I don't want to. My wife would not like that at all. (her)... (me) And we all know...when Momma is happy everyone is happy.
