We commonly deal with squirrels inside people's attics and eaves, especially in early autumn and late winter, when mother squirrels chew their way in and raise a nest of baby squirrels. We solve squirrel
problems permanently, by squirrel-proofing your home.
Here is an email I received about a squirrel problem:
Jax Wildlife: I was on your website and read a lot of interesting things about squirrels-thank you. We live in west Jacksonville and have problems with the squirrels nesting in the tree in the middle of our back yard.
The ONLY problem with that is we have 2 dogs and the one constantly barks if the squirrels are active in the tree. The dogs are outside during the day as we have a large backyard and we work full time. We have tried
several different “bark” collars and if we could solve how to keep the squirrels from nesting in that particular tree in the future- that would help tremendously. Just this year Barnum and Bailey have caught two
(one was killed in the process) squirrels. We would like to avoid this for the obvious health reasons for our pets and ourselves. Can you offer us any suggestions on trying to keep the squirrels from nesting In this
particular tree in the future? This is the first year they have nested in this particular tree (had a litter of babies) as our yard and neighborhood is well established (30 years) and the trees are mature and there
are plenty. Any suggestions you can offer would be much appreciated. We have considered making a large circular ring around the bottom branches, out of chicken wire, but I am not sure that would deter them much.
Appreciate your help.
Kim - Unfortunately, there's nothing that can be done to keep squirrels from using a particular tree. You might as well ask the birds not to fly in a particular patch of air! But you can, if you wish, have the squirrels humanely trapped and relocated to a different area. - David
