I have tried everything I can think of to keep the damn squirrels out of my 1.5 acre yard--had all the trees trimmed back, had a strand of electrified wire+ a ground wire run around the top of the fence, dug plastic boards in all the way around the fence (700 feet of fence) to prevent them from coming under, and still there are a ton of squirrels. So I began to trap them. Got about 30 last year before winter set in, and about 10 more this spring. There seems to be an endless supply of squirrels. How many am I going to have to trap before there is a dent in their numbers? Checking traps all day long every day is getting old.
