I don’t know about where you guys are, but we have a massive problem with these 13 lined squirrels. They
Are adorable, but very destructive.
We have tried everything to get rid of them from the yard. The bucket of death, filling their holes with water, putting repellant in their holes, human hair, dog hair, hot pepper. Nothing worked.....

Except....

The one thing I didn’t think would work. Those stupid sonic solar stakes that make a buzzing noise.
I can hardly believe it. Not a single squirrel in sight. Seriously, not one! If you have voles, or moles they work on them too.
The trick is that you have to really put the stake in solid ground in order for it to vibrate correctly.
The great thing is it is non poisonous, non lethal, and it drives them to your neighbors yard (A plus if you don’t like your neighbors)

Just thought I would share in case anyone else is dealing with these devilish critters in your gardens.
Get planting, we may all need it soon.

I heard they taste like dirt.
Is that true?
Prairie dogs are said to taste like that too, but some Native American tribes ate them anyway.

Cool. I'm looking at these on Amazon, and they say they're for moles and ground burrowing animals. But you say it works on squirrels too! Interesting!

I wonder if they'd work on raccoons? We have a pair of raccoons hanging out in the trees in our back yard, wreaking havoc with the sod!

Those sonic pest control things also keep kids out of your yard. We cannot sense them when we get older, but kids tend to sense them. That could be beneficial but a curse too if your kid knows it, then they will have an excuse to go wander around town with their friends while you think they are in the yard.

13 lined squirrels are burrowing. They will tear up a yard pretty bad an multiply rapidly.

At the camp ground I used to work at, they would fill a milk jug with water and drain it down into their hole, covering their hole with the jug opening. As the water drained into their hole, they'd run up into the jug and now you captured one or two live in the jug.

I've been dealing with moles. I notice they don't hibernate, they dig around my lawn all winter. When spring comes and I start mowing the lawn, the moles leave because they don't like the vibrations, even if it's just once a week I do the lawn mowing. So I have no doubt that this device will work on moles. Can you tell us more, like the brand and product name?

Squirrel tastes good in soup.

At least you didn't try to stuff them into a pillowcase.

Interesting. My parents had a huge squirrel problem for a while, until my 86 yr old Dad figured out a good solution.

One problem with your solution - I imagine it would have similar results with all of the other wildlife they really enjoy watching from their window - deer, wild turkeys, even the occasional bears, etc. They don't want to drive everything away, just the squirrels that eat all of the deer food he puts out.

Oh - his solution? Target practice with his 22 rifle.
