We've had a squirrel problem forever. Most of the birdseed goes to the squirrels, which is frustrating and expensive. It seems that the squirrel population increased while we were on our trip and we had decided to stop feeding the birds altogether. But, we love the birds and missed them very much. Friends have suggested poisoning, shooting, even electrocuting the squirrels, but we don't kill ANYTHING in our house. Remember, Hubby captures copperheads and takes them to an undisclosed location.
So, Hubby decided to buy a live, humane trap to capture and release the furry varmints. He's staying busy taking the squirrels away (same undisclosed location as snakes). Hopefully, the squirrels don't have a GPS and will not return.
It's a good thing the live trap is working because I was ready to take matters into my own hands (er, paws).
