"Repel without trapping?" If I could do that, I'd be a rich man....
These are "boom and bust" animals. Some years are worse than others, especially when they have acclimated to the production of oak trees. Or any nut tree, for that matter.
That means that some years are worse than others, often keyed to the local outdoor food supplies. You might also have problems with people feeding them, that's always a no-no.
Still, trapping the excess population is the best answer, make sure you put all captives down. If you don't or won't do that, there's not much I can help you with. Otherwise, the answers are on my squirrel pages, or on this message board.
