Re: Squirrels destroying my Cedar - Help

said by Jon:

Cause killing them is always the answer.

It's effective and low cost, so yeah, it's at least AN answer. His tree is being destroyed, now, and so action is warranted.

Trap and release may be another answer, with the risks attendant of near contact with a live, very upset wild mammal. Rabies, fleas and other diseases may be present in these critters, plus it can take more time and be less effective in the short term.

What other "answers" can you think of that will work well, quickly and with little risk to the people that have to put up with them?

Quickly? I dunno. But as I said get rid of the feeders. I can see two in the pic. If there's nothing in you're yard they want, they wont go there. Though I'm not convinced the problem with the tree is Squirrels anyway. You're not gonna get multiple Squirrels nesting in one tree and one squirrel isn't gonna strip a tree for it's nest.

We have plenty here too and I see them picking up stick and leaves from the ground rather than pulling them off of trees. It's too much work.
