Tree squirrels are cute, fuzzy and fun to watch, but humans have something of a love/hate relationship with them. We love their crazy antics—but we hate when they're raiding our birdfeeders.
If you've got squirrels driving you nutty, remember that they're only doing what's natural: Looking for a meal and a safe place to sleep at night. Whether you need to evict them from your attic or stop them from stealing your bird food, be patient and look for a way that won't harm the critters or their young. Here's what to do about:
- Squirrels and bird feeders
- Squirrel damage in your yard and garden
- Squirrels nesting in the attic
- Squirrels nesting in the chimney
- A squirrel loose in the house
Are you a squirrel watcher?
Just because you don't want squirrels living in your attic doesn't mean you can't enjoy them outside. They're fascinating to watch, photograph and study, and unlike most wildlife, they aren’t shy!
