You don't have to kill ALL of them, just the ones that get into the attic. Trap up there so those are the ones you get.
As far as the strobes are concerned, sometimes they work, and sometimes they don't. Sometimes they work for a little while, until the squirrels get used to them or they just pile up insulation so the light doesn't reach them. It's akin to using a bucket to fix a leak in your roof...
Trap the inhabitants and seal off the entry points. Don't feed the birds or other wildlife and don't leave any kind of food or trash (food refuse) outside.
