Yes, yes it is. Despite my slight terror on the subject I am glad that I posted it. It gave everyone a good laugh, and at the end of the day, I like doing that. When I say slight terror I mean sheer terror; but there you go...
Well, lets hope this comes to nothing and the unbearable heat kills them off. I doubt that this will happen though (what with the sort of luck I generally get) but, if I don't get some footage (which I am going to TRY and get) I'll tell you about any conflicts that might come along.

Oh, and regards to your original problem, these things have a habit of taking care of themselves.
As populations increase, food supplies dwindle and predators move in, forcing the population to either fan out or move entirely.
Birth rates are also flexible. As resources increase and dangers decrease, the birth rate goes up. As resources decrease and dangers increase , the birth rate goes down.
Also, larger populations have the greater ability to transfer disease and pestilence which also impacts the population.
Outside of resorting to actually killing the little buggers, remove any food supplies like bird feeders that will attract them. No food, no squirrels.

You know... to be blatantly honest with you, I've seen certain people, and certain people only - where the squirrels in London actually sit on these people, they almost... protect them. It's really very weird to see, can you see where I'm going with this ? For samosa sakes man, you could have a genuine squirrel armada.... think about it.

And basically thats how you turn a frown upside down


gOOOOoooo rangers YES!

Hhh... I can see now that I will never be taken seriously no matter what I post. What have I done to my reputation? Or rather, the reputation that I might have built up for myself. I should have posted this AFTER doing some more respectable things eh?
Ok, this is my proposal: Usually, at about five in the moring, we get a few 'visitors' in the garden. I'm banking that they'll come along and, when/ if they do what they should do, I'll film them and what they do. Then I'll put that on a website I have intimate access to and you can watch the footage. Remember: If I fail, you will get it! I promise! It's just that my camera is built into the laptop and I don't really feel like taking it out into the street (not round here at least). Who knows, you might get to see me! Well, if you're lucky! I'm joking, I promise you'll get something soon, even if I have to stay up all night every night.
Oh, and I would NEVER let the little blighters get at MY nuts!

Don't worry Rama, we are not out to get you. We are not out plotting your demise. Go on about your life and tell yourself that everything is ok and normal.

If on the off-chance we do decide to move against you, it is only for the greater good.

Ooh, you squirrels! It's a good thing I know you can't use computers otherwise I'd be running around terrified and getting the baseball bat out! Actually it's always out... Well you never know! I'm not just afraid of squirrels you know! Oh-ho no. There are things out there that send the very urine of fear running from my brow like rain. The Squirrels are one of them, but they're so cute. Squirrels aside, what have you guys done to get those red 'ignore' tags next to your names? I only ask because you all seem like pretty nice people (despite exploiting my fear, although you could say that I have) with pretty sharp views.

Here where I live they had also become quite aggressive with the people/children
in one of the parks - and the infestation got so hard to contain that they "got rid of them"... I'm not sure how - although there were rumors ...
but they did - they are gone.
Your concern is not crazy.
But I would, if you could, try to live with them - instead of killing them.

I suggest you get a couple of good pellet gun, grab your son(s), and go Rambo on them. If you feel guilty about it then slice off their skin, gut them, and roast them on the grill.

All I can say is fried squirrel, mashed potatoes and gravy, hot buiscits, and a big old glass of sweet tea, now that's livin'.
Partner, if you can't bring yourself to kill little fluffy, just tell us where you live. I'm sure there a plenty of ATS'ers out there that would love to get some target practice in with their .22's.

Oh man I got a serious hoot out of that. I don't think you will ever understand how hard I was laughing.


If I remember right something like this was on a movie or something. Ugh, can't quite remember but I know I've heard something like this before.

I hope your not serious btw...

Oh, I'm sure they really do appear to be just ordinary squirrels.

Have you been able to identify their leader yet?

Look for any similar markings they may have (which could indicate gang, or secret-society membership).

Good luck, be careful, this could be how it all starts.



Sorry man, Hey, I'll donate Federal Reserve Notes in the amount of five U.S. Dollars to a Squirrel Abatement Fund or something if you really need it.

Yikes - What a horrible insensitive thing to say.
What's up with that?

I didn't read the entire thread, so excuse if someone has suggested this.

Borrow "have a heart traps" from your humane society, and then drive them to a wooded area and release them.

That's how they came to MY neighborhood. Someone brought them here. Cute at first, but then, not so much.

Princeton University's squirrel's are the typical American Grey squirrel, but they are black. They are territorial, like dogs, and will chase you and hiss at you. Beautiful little squirrels, but very easily annoyed, and seemingly irritable.

But yes. Too many squirrels can be a pain in the booty.

Just be glad you don't have my ninja bunny problem. I just caught one trying to break in my front door. Silly rabbits.

They're the Department of Homeland Sciuridae...

As already mentioned. Cats


In early spring we had many squirrels running around in the back yards. Then a few stray cats moved into the neighbourhood and had a litter or two. Since then not a single squirrel around, until a few days ago, when coincidentally I have not seen the strays.

Hmm I wonder if I missed a battle and the squirrels won. Personally I am not a cat person and would rather see squirrels.
